Christmas is just around the corner, and with it, a steady roll out of some of the most iconic festive campaigns by our favourite brands.
So whether you’re making a start on your holiday gifting, or browsing what’s on offer for your own wish-list, we’ve done the work for you.
Below, a round up of the most fabulous festive campaigns of the 2023 holiday season.
Elton John And Charlotte Tilbury Team Up For An Important Cause
In the dazzling images, a sequin-clad Elton stars alongside supermodels Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn, singer Rina Sawayama, actor Micaela Jae Rodriguez, and of course, makeup mogul Charlotte Tilbury herself. Also starring are Charlotte nieces Sofia Schwarzkopf-Tilbury and Bella Broekman-Tilbury. (What is Christmas about if not family?)
This lineup of British icons has been assembled in support of the brand’s role as “the official founding beauty partner” of Elton’s AIDS Foundations’ The Rocket Fund. As part of the partnership, the brand has launched the limited edition ‘Rocket Collection’, featuring two lipstick shades, both adorned with the collection’s signature starry print, and a ‘Rock Star’ beauty bag.
Charlotte’s Rock Star! Beauty Icons Limited Edition Makeup Bag and Lip Kits, $200 from Charlotte Tilbury.
Swarovski ‘Celebrates Wonder’ With Steven Miesel And Pat McCgrath
Titled ‘Celebrate Wonder’, the mesmerising campaign features a series of unique portraits, each showcasing a different Swarovski collection: Blue Gema, Mesmera Stardut, Matrix Supernova, Punk Luna, and Hyperbola Nebula.
Speaking about the series, Swarovski’s creative director Giovanna Engelbert said, “My vision centered around the idea of women, all with distinct looks and personalities, transforming into the jewellery pieces they are wearing. Together with Steven Meisel and Pat McGrath, we have created magic in a series of images that capture the festive glamour and wonder of the holiday season.”
Louis Vuitton Invites Us Into A World Of Wonder
Louis Vuitton has captured the wonder of the festive season with a series of magical images and video showcasing the best the brand has to offer.
Vivienne, Louis Vuitton’s emblematic mascot (shaped like the brand’s iconic four-petaled motif), journeys through this festive wonderland with a logo-covered bear in tow. From a Christmas tree assembled from Louis Vuitton luggage, to a car piled high with perfectly-wrapped presents, can you spot the cute duo in each snow-dusted image?
Jacquemus And Kendall Jenner Team Up For The Cheekiest Christmas Campaign
Jacquemus is making us lust after a white Christmas, with its ‘Guirlande’ campaign starring Kendall Jenner.
The series of shots feature Kendall in a host of avant-garde festive settings, including lounging languidly in nothing but a santa hat, descending a set of stairs in skis, and with her endlessly long leg wrapped in Christmas lights.
In a colour palette of snowy white, bright red, forest green, gold, and silver, the collection spans handbags, outerwear, and clothing in classic Jacquemus silhouettes.
There’s also a series of lifestyle pieces that would make for perfect holiday gifts, including soap, games, and tree ornaments in the shape of Jacquemus handbags. Needless to say, we’re obsessed.
SSENSE Exclusive Burgundy Guirlande ‘Le Bambimou’ Bag, $1040 from SSENSE.
Jacquemus Gold Guirlande ‘La Maille Pralu’ Cardigan, $520 from SSENSE.
Jacquemus Gold Guirlande ‘Le Porte Bisou’ Coin Pouch, $360 from SSENSE.
