Fashion Spotlight :: Tommy Hilfiger Spring Summer 2010 ad campaign

S/S 2010 Ad Campaign by Tommy Hilfiger

Seeing how Tommy Hilfiger targets his costumers by lifestyle while focusing on trends is very appealing. Favorite campaign photos for spring!

You may remember the new global advertising direction “American Stories“, a unique tribute to the United States of America by luxury brand Tommy Hilfiger. After California for their Spring/Summer 2009 ad campaign, Washington, here’s an ode to sunny and beautiful Miami.
The new Tommy Hilfiger Spring/Summer 2010 ad campaign shot in Miami Beach features all-American casual and sports clothes but also a retro chic look very summery. We like to think these photos transport us to the energy of the seventies where everything was fun and no drama. I believe the job is well done!
The pictures were taken by fashion and celebrity photographer Ellen Von Unwerth who worked her magic to deliver a summery look for this campaign: hence the beach, the color, the lounge chairs etc…The models include Anna Jagodzinska, Jamie Strachan and Noah Mills, the new Sex and The City boy.
We hope you like the new Tommy Hilfiger Spring/Summer 2010 line.

ISLAND Spotlight :: Philip Paratore shares Himself with ISLAND

Today ISLAND introduces a new family member and memory keeper, Philip Paratore as he not only shares himself with us, but some of work.
Born in Australia to Italian Parents, Philip Paratore has been a freelance photographer for 19 years. His motive is driven by a principle intricacy he discovered through his heritage, where he sees the marriage of these two distinct cultures as a background to his work. The romanticism of Italian culture amalgamated with the space and earth elements of Australian life.
"I describe my work as a constant study of the human aesthetic. I've always been commissioned to photograph people and products, but landscapes have always served as a prop or context for my images... the subject remain always a human content. So because of my style, the nature of my work has enjoyed a great volume of beauty and fashion assignments." - Philp P. The results of which led to my being Nationally awarded Australian Hair Fashion Photographer of the year 1995.

"I enjoy visiting new places in the world from which to source talent and locations. See most great cities acquire their own unique history, in addition they inspire my visual imaginings. In the Fall of 2010 I am moving to New York, one of my favorite cities in the world and I invite all the opportunities my journey will bring.
Music is also a great source of inspiration for me, it's a soundtrack to life and most definitely an essential ingredient in all I do. I have had the great pleasure of photographing many musicians in their element on stage and off, which is incredibly gratifying for me, to combine my two greatest passions in life Sound & Vision."

Gene Simmons
Pete Burns
When Philip left high school he wanted to make music videos, so he enrolled in a Film & Television course at a College, taking on Photography as a minor study. During the 5 years of studies, he found himself gravitating towards the medium of photography more and more and was even being booked for shoots while he was still a student. So it wasn't long before he accepted the mantle and became a fully fledged Memory Keeper. Though his passion for the Sound & Vision remained strong, all these years later he has finally honored his early ambitions of making music videos by doing just that.
"Over the last 3 years I have embraced the medium and have enjoyed completing many expressive assignments in the process." -Philp P.
