Legendary photographer Bruce Weber shoots icons like Brooke Shields, Stephanie Seymour Brant with a host of hot bodies for Barneys New York Spring 2015 Campaign.
Better than Ever is a true celebration of age and diversity. Hero’s of the 80s are surrounded by handsome young boys who are enchanted by their fabulous cast. Weber and his creative team have created an elaborate story set in luxurious Miami, a Mad Camp Weekend away with a lavish apartment complete with Miami necessities, palm trees and pools with tanned boys in tight shorts. The diverse cast are enjoying a ladies weekend away with designer outfits that reflect the humour, personality and spirit of the campaign and the individuals. A sense of humour is prominent within these playful images, with the boys are clamouring for the ladies attention. Beauty, poise and captivating gazes that can only be perfected with time. Barneys wanted to prove that these wonderful ladies, aged 30-60, are more powerful than model lightweight waifs. As a legend in the fashion world, it just so happens that Bruce Weber worked with the majority of the glamour-girls already, and they just happen to be some of the most iconic models spanning the last 40 years. Barneys have broken the mould, with crisp, bright photographs which are full of vitality. Like a good whiskey, these ladies have only gotten better with age.
