Top 10 Women’s Fashion Ad Campaigns of 2022

The Best Women’s Fashion Ad Campaigns of 2022 as chosen by Kenneth Richard

While our favorite campaigns tend to be those with a rich sense of narrative and a focus on creative concept, this season’s best women’s campaigns actually ended up being those with a classically minded, pared-back focus on immediately striking and excellently composed visuals.

Moschino’s campaign, for example, took creative director Jeremy Scott’s bold and surrealist Fall 2022 designs as its basis. Exploring the kind of gilded, baroque opulence we might expect to find in an ornate mansion, the collection seems to take a bit of a cue from Beauty and the Beast’s furniture-come-to-life motif; these characters are at once powerful women and fancy pieces of furniture: grandfather clocks, lamps, keyholes, urns, birdcages. Working with multiple levels of depth and height and making dramatic use of shadow, photographer Steven Meisel’s compositions feel at once like antique portraits of an aristocratic family, a sitting room brought to life, and a Broadway set.

Miu Miu, Alexander McQueen, and Saint Laurent took an even more straightforward approach, eschewing theatricality and narrative in favor of simple editorial-style imagery that was nonetheless rife with character, emotional texture, and of course style.

The undersung but always impeccable Giada looked to the slow-motion poetry of the natural world with its stunning Fall campaign by photographer Chris Rhodes, who captured model Marte Mei Van Haaster against the monumental and rawly beautiful setting of an Italian marble quarry. The hard edges and striations of color provide gorgeous harmony and contrast with the precise lines and poetic palette of creative director Gabriele Colangelo’s design work, and drew out the inspiration of volcanic landscapes and northern light behind the collection.

Loewe‘s Fall campaign made excellent and subtly surreal use of artist Anthea Hamilton’s pumpkin sculptures, which also formed the basis of the house’s set design for the collection’s runway show. Another strong example of Loewe’s uncanny ability to inject the everyday with a sense of the artistic and the magical, the campaign conveyed the brand’s power to occupy a singular space at the intersection of fashion, art, and life, particularly emphasized in its thoughtful ability to call on artistic practices both historical and contemporary.

Here are The Impression’s Top 10 Women’s Fashion Ad Campaigns of 2022 as selected by our Chief Impressionist, Kenneth Richard.
