Much from Juergen Teller’s work reminds of Terry Richardson’s. And that’s not a good thing. I admit it’s a subjective point of view and as a fashion bystander I sometimes go (just) skin deep into some issues.
Talking about skin. Have you noticed Marc Jacob’s Bang ad? Bang is Marc’s latest perfume for men and advertising it he found nothing more suitable than his very own (clothesless) persona. Oiled and laid back. And even though he said this was his associate’s idea, I’m having difficulties in discarding the heavy deja-vu feeling (and the greasiness of it all) – remember this? and this? What do you make of Juergen Teller’s Marc Jacobs Bang Perfume Ad? (just in case: the perfume drops on July 30 in stores and it’ll be accompanied by a very aggressive campaign with yes, this very image!) (via)
Too much Tom Ford and too much Dolce&Gabbana Women Fall 2007.
Jacobs is looking like wrapped meat or something. Bang: the new barbecue sauce. Available at fine stores.
Why is it so tough to come up with new ideas?
This ad is far from intriguing or clever. It is just overtly greasy and cheap sex looking. BANG implies to me just base and the crass.
It works though… It grabs your attention.

It was the talk of the evening, Marc’s oiled up muscular body. A whole host of fashionable faces were in attendance such as Jesus Luz as the dj.
