Black (& White) Friday

The 2010 holiday ad campaign that I shot for La Encantada, an upscale open air mall in Arizona, illustrates the story of a dapper man-about-town as he picks up last minute holiday gifts for his family… and himself. Our hero, dressed in a Brooks Brother’s suit, stops at Tiffany & Co. where he buys a huge, four carat diamond anniversary ring. After that, he decides he could use a drink, and a smoke, so he stops at a wine bar, removes a Cuban from his Tommy Bahama cigar case, and enjoys a glass of fine brandy. He chooses a new pair of specs, straps a holiday wreath from the Pottery Barn on his vintage Mercedes, and heads off into the evening with a new found friend from the Humane Society.

This is running as a seven page magazine insert. Produced and styled by Melanie Sutton and Adriana Barillari. Layout by Heidi Zielger-Voll @ Heidi5. Our models were John O. from S.I.M. Agency in Phoenix, and our own Adriana Barillari who stepped in as a Tiffany’s shop girl at the last minute. John, it turned out, is also a coach for the Chicago White Sox.

I am especially happy to say that all of our amazing animal models from the Humane Society have been adopted!
