Keira Knightly in the new Coco Mademoiselle adv.

March 23, 2011

My friends and I often bemoan fragrance ads as they tend to be ultra vague, idealistic and often as confusing or as forgetable as the fragrance they advertise.  This is when the term ‘not of this world’ is a bad thing as the women who buy the fragrance and wear it in cocktail bars, very definitely […]

‘212 Pop for Women’ by Carolina Herrera

March 15, 2011

This is strange.  I didn’t expect to like ‘212 Pop for Women’ by Carolina Herrera but I did.  Firstly there’s the packaging.  A hugely ‘look at me’ square, fluro pink, funky Courreges style ’60’s bottle holder that comes in two halves that fit together is attention grabbing to say the least.  Inspired by Pop Art, there’s […]
