Guess in Sicily

This short is not particularly new, but it was recently brought to my attention.

This short film was made as a behind the scenes look at the Guess spring Collection in 2010.  The reason I am featuring it here is somewhat personal.  The location of the shoot is the small village that my mother is from and much of my family still lives.  Needless to say some of the faces are familiar and all of the places I know well and love.

It is hard to explain, let alone capture, the beauty of this small village, but Photographer Vincent Peters seems to have done quit well.  It does not hurt that there are beautiful models in every scene.

This is not the first time I have written about fashion videography.  See these older posts.

In the end I just thought I would share this fun and very beautiful look at were my family calls home.

GUESS by Marciano Debuts Spring 2010 Campaign Images

The Spring / Summer 2010 campaign for GUESS by Marciano captures the true essence of beauty. Shot in a small fishing port outside of Cefalu called Porticello, Italy, the artful images create a perfect balance of the natural environment and the old Hollywood glamour of models Alyssa Miller and Klara Wester along with Werner Schreyer.

Guided by the creative direction of Paul Marciano, the campaign features a seductive yet realistic look at the GUESS by Marciano woman, captured and brought to reality by renowned photographer, Vincent Peters, whose work has appeared in LUomo Vogue, French Vogue, Numero and Ten Magazine. The images are captured in unforgettable black & white photos, showcasing the seasons must-have fashion pieces including high-waisted shorts, sheer, feminine blouses and off the shoulder dresses.

The campaign is shot indoors and outdoors, giving a glimpse into the leading ladies private world. Whether sunbathing or emerging from the water, the images highlight the GUESS by Marciano girl in a Goddess like state. The indoor shots are more intimate, capturing a certain level of vulnerability, making them equally revealing.

I am truly inspired by the Spring/ Summer 2010 campaign for GUESS by Marciano, says Paul Marciano, Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for GUESS, Inc., Each of these images is a work of art, but together they tell a story of old Hollywood glamour and the European influences that our brand is built upon.

Look for these GUESS by Marciano images in upcoming issues of top international fashion and lifestyle magazines, in GUESS by Marciano retail stores, and on collateral materials.
