There is a new Zara campaign in town and it is staying at the residence up in the hills that might as well be the Hearst Castle. Residing in this latest advertising incarnation of Zara’s by photographer Steven Meisel and creative director Fabien Baron is none other than Karolin Wolter. Wearing an embroidered tunic dress for her first look and an embroidered velvet scarf dress for her second (both pictured), Karolin extends and accentuates the mood of the resplendent setting masterfully created by set designer Mary Howard. Decadent as this campaign looks, never lose sight of the fast fashion purveyed by Zara SA and its parent company Inditex, the world’s largest clothier. Says right here that this is in fact accessible fashion. Fast fashion and mass production, however do not preclude participation of the industry’s leading creatives, which is precisely why any of these frames would not look out of place in an issue of Vogue Italia. Central to this campaign’s success is the casting, of which Karolin is central. She is a veteran of many an advertising campaign and brings to this house party a considerable cachet. Be sure to pay this campaign a visit, it will be staying all season long.
