Mercedes Benz Fashion Campaign SS13
The campaign follows a series shot by the likes of Nick Knight, Miles Aldridge, Craig McDean and Terry Richardson and features the new Mercedes’ CLS Shooting Brake coupé.
“I decided to create a picture that tells a story of the most sought after objects and design that stay in history and are preserved forever; with Joan Smalls – for this campaign made up to be like some character from the future – taking the CLS Shooting Brake with her into the unknown and leaving everything else behind”. – Mario Testino
“I’ve worked with Mario Testino before and it’s always a pleasure. Everything from his work ethic to the way he shoots, to the way he treats people speaks to the fact that he is a true gentleman. You always know that the pictures will come out looking beautiful and iconic“. – Joan Smalls
