It’s that wonderful time of year again – Banowetz + Company is busy working on the fall fashion shoot and photo editing for our long-time client, NorthPark Center. One of the things we love most about NorthPark is their involvement in, passion for and promotion of the arts. And as part of a continuing emphasis on their tagline “The Art of Shopping,” we took this shoot to our neighboring state of Arkansas to the spectacular Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville. Not only does the museum house a fantastic collection of masterworks from the colonial era to modern day, but the exquisite architectural design of this landmark structure by world-renowned Moshe Safdie offers stunning interior and exterior spaces flooded with natural light and materials, set against a backdrop of the Ozarks.
Once this ideal location was determined, our quest was to find the perfect faces for the fall campaign. We were delighted to bring New York talent Zhenya Katava and Daniel de Wolf into the mix, who were both exceptional on- and off-set. Our brilliant creative team collaborated with our client to pair new fall looks from top designers, such as Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Burberry, Mulberry and Ferragamo, with artistic works from the collection at Crystal Bridges. The finished shots as fascinating as they are rich in color and texture.
This September, the new campaign will roll out nationally in Harper’s Bazaar, W, and WWD, as well as locally in PaperCity, FD, Modern Luxury and Patron. Last but certainly not least, the entire campaign will be showcased in a perfect-bound book and mailed to 70,000 homes. Just to whet your appetite, here are a few behind-the-scenes pics from the photoshoot. As summer starts coming to a close, be on the lookout for the unveiling of the incredible final images and see what wardrobe “must haves” to add to your shopping list for your next visit to NorthPark.
