Escada has released its advertising campaign for fall ’15, featuring veteran model Lily Donaldson. Photographer Daniel Jackson shot Donaldson in New York City with the theme of a day in the life of the modern Escada woman. Jackson has also shot campaigns for Prabal Gurung, H&M, Calvin Klein and ICB.
Donaldson looks elegant and ethereal in a palette of black, camel, and light pink. The campaign highlights the new ML40 signature bag, which honors Escada founder Margaretha Ley and is a nod to the house’s 40th anniversary. Margaretha and her husband, Wolfgang Ley, founded the house in Munich in 1976. Margaretha passed away in 1992.
Aside from the ML40 handbag, the collection features several pairs of shoes. In one image, Donaldson wears black suede ankle booties paired with a chic camel jacket. She also appears in black peep-toe pumps. In another, a shimmery bronze dress and gold pointy-toe pumps with a minimal ankle strap beg to be taken out for a night on the town.
