Photographed by Paolo Roversi, with a video by John Christopher Alberico and styled by Panos Yiapanis, Barney’s Fall campaign transports models Arizona Muse, Magdalena Laguinge and Timothy Kelleher into the settings of classic American art and literature—be it a gilded drawing room from John Singer Sargent or a cavernous marble mansion worthy of Henry James.
Together, Laguinge and Kelleher bring ominous glamour to a faded living room—Languinge commanding the foreground with her full brows, in a scarlet leather dress and metallic red stilettos, while Kelleher sits on the arm of an ottoman, transfixed in a navy, crewneck sweater and trousers. Alone in a ramshackle kitchen, a white, high-collar, lace dress emphasizes Laguinge’s mournful beauty; in pearl embroidered black trousers and beige sweater in another scene, her stare at once entrances and commands. Arizona Muse adds a brighter if equally imposing glamour to the campaign—her signature short hair styled in ’50s curls, sitting in a plum dress in leopard print chair. One thing is clear, the Barneys’ fall woman is no damsel in distress, no naïve ingénue, or meek wife or girlfriend. She’s Sargent’s “Madame X”—elegant, collected, and commanding.
