Nordstrom + Ruben Toledo 2008- 02.15.08

nordstromsas.jpgFlipping through the Feb 2008 Vanity Fair, i couldn’t resist tearing out this Spring Nordstrom ad… much like the Prada and James Jean campaign for spring, Nordstrom has teamed up with Ruben Toledo who painted 20-by-30 foot walls to serve as a backdrop for the models which were shot by fashion photographer Ruven Afanador… in fact, Toledo even got to paint ON the models for the campaign. Lovely to see the contrast of the perfectly style colorful models in designer dresses and shoes popping off of the playful black and white paintings… see all of the scans after the jump, and you can even click them to see larger.

Here are the scanned ads ~ click any of the images to view larger..

This campaign is so inspiring. The Nordstrom catalog is incredibly beautiful too, but these images are just arresting. I can’t wait to hear the duo speak tonight.

FYI: Angelenos have a chance to meet Isabel & Ruben Toledo at the Pacific Design Center on March 11 at 5:30, at an “Inside the Designer’s Studio” event presented by Otis College of Art and Design’s Rosemary Brantley. It’s one of the few events of LA fashion week where the public may attend. Details are posted at fashionweekla.com.
