Manish Arora is one of my favorite designers because of his relentless use of bold color, decoration + interesting silhouettes. But when he picked French photographer Charles Fréger, to shoot Arora’s guerrilla poster campaign featuring his Fall 2015 collection, his looks took on a whole new level. You see, Fréger’s expertise lies in his series of portraits of sportsmen + soldiers, which granted him the ability to perfectly capture the essence of the ‘modern-day urban warrior’.
Starring model Debra Shaw + styled by Joanna Schlenzka, Fréger had the perfect canvas to work with, able to incorporate his interesting poses + signature portrait style. With looks that focused on a lot of layering, different textures, a multitude of prints, many embellishments + a vast array of clever accessories, this campaign is sure to liven things up during Paris Fashion Week, which runs from Sept. 29 to Oct. 7.
