Discover Your World of Style
Experience Lane Crawford’s Spring/Summer 2013 Campaign

 

(Hong Kong – January 14, 2013) Lane Crawford debuts its ground-breaking first-ever 3D campaign for Spring/Summer 2013.  Shot by the pioneering fashion image-maker Nick Knight, the campaign embraces technology, fashion and photography of the highest level.  Giving this latest campaign the 3D scan treatment, Knight coupled with motion capture that features this season’s campaign girl Ming Xi, rendered and animated in a futuristic way never seen before.  

 

The Technology

Fifteen years ago, Knight became fascinated with 3D scanning, a technique used in filmmaking and video game production, to capture biometric data of an object.  He has since boldly applied this technique within a fashion context, creating 3D scans of the likes of Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Lady Gaga. 

 

We're trying to push the frontiers of what technology can do within fashion.  What's exciting is that Lane Crawford is brave enough to put their weight behind it.  It's leading by example and that's great.” Nick Knight

 

The Process

Ming Xi was set the challenge of posing as still as a statue, as a piece of imposing apparatus rotated around her, capturing her exact features and angles.  Every slight movement would cause glitches in the 3D renderings, which Knight found exciting.  The two-day shoot was an ongoing experiment where the outcome was often unpredictable, particularly when Ming Xi had to be motion captured, with the corresponding data mapped to the still imagery, in order to obtain the final warped animations. 

 

The Girl

Ming Xi has been on fashion’s centre stage since entering China’s Elite Model Look competition in 2009.  This is Ming’s third campaign for Lane Crawford and this season, she is the solo star, braving her way through a new fashion frontier of 3D scanning and motion capture. 

 

The Fashion

The revered stylist Katy England set the avant-garde style agenda in the nineties, working as Fashion Director at Dazed & Confused and AnOther magazine.   Pulling together four diverse runway looks that represent a polarised Spring/Summer 2013 season, including ornate honeycomb embroidery from Alexander McQueen, a boxy Proenza Schouler perforated leather ensemble, a trail of delicate chiffon contrasted with tailored trousers from Haider Ackermann and a pale blue exercise of sleek lines from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci

 

The Team

Hairstylist Sam McKnight, make-up artist Val Garland and nail technician Marian Newman were the experienced triumvirate that came together for this shoot.  Together, they have worked as a trio with Nick Knight regularly on shoots for Vogue as well as for various fashion campaigns.

體驗連卡佛2013年春夏季形象廣告

 

 

(香港 - 2013114) 連卡佛首個2013春夏3D形象廣告正式亮相。本次形象廣告由先鋒時尚影像師Nick Knight掌舵,內容涉及最尖端的科技、時尚和攝影領域。Knight採用3D掃描處理,並加入動態捕捉技術,以前所未有的未來主義方式將本活動主角奚夢瑤刻畫得靈動無限。

 

科技

15年前,Knight便開始著迷於3D掃描技術,該技術當時主要應用於電影製作和視頻遊戲製作,用以採集物體的動態資料。Knight大膽的將這一技術引入時尚界,曾為Naomi CampbellKate MossLady Gaga等國際巨星進行3D掃描。

 

“我們試圖拓展尖端科技在時尚界的應用。讓人興奮的是,連卡佛也非常願意在這方面付出努力和探索,這將成為業界一個標杆,是件好事。” Nick Knight說道。

 

拍攝過程

在造型方面,奚夢瑤此次面臨著巨大的挑戰。她需要像雕塑一樣巋然不動,拍攝裝置圍繞在她周圍,從不同角度精確捕捉她的臉部特徵。每一個細微的移動都會影響到3D渲染的效果,讓Knight覺得極具挑戰。兩天的拍攝是一個不間斷的嘗試過程,而結果總是不可預知,尤其是奚夢瑤動作捕捉的部分,相應的資料圖會映射到靜止的影像之中,以獲取最終的動畫卷。

 

奚夢瑤

奚夢瑤自2009年入圍中國精英模特大賽之後,便始終活躍於時尚舞臺。本次是奚夢瑤第三次與連卡佛合作,她也是本次形象廣告中唯一的主角,通過3D掃描這一全新時尚尖端科技和動作捕捉技術另闢蹊徑。

 

時裝

造型師Katy England作為Dazed & ConfusedAnOther magazine的時裝總監,曾是九十年代時尚前衛風格的引領者。2013春夏,她所操刀的四個不同秀場完美的詮釋了終極時尚,包括Alexander McQueen華美蜂巢刺繡、Proenza Schouler方正廓形的全套打孔皮衣、Haider Ackermann對比鮮明的精美雪紡和合體長褲以及Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci淡藍色調的俐落線條設計。

 

團隊

髮型師Sam McKnight、化妝師Val Garland和美甲師Marian Newman為本次拍攝再度聚首。這一黃金三人組與Nick Knight經常聯手負責Vogue以及其他時尚廣告的拍攝。
