LIL YACHTY FOR ALEXANDER WANG SS17
Lil Yachty stars in Alexander Wang’s latest Spring Summer 2017 ad campaign, in which the shots depict the realm of reality and fantasy. Titled “Beyond Reality”, the advert gallery boasts appearances from world-renowned models and rappers.
Lil Yachty, Snoop Dogg and Drake can be spotted in the images, not forgetting R. Kelly. Shot by iconic photographers Inez and Vinoodh, the shoot took place in an old police building located in Manhattan NYC. Similar to other Alexander Wang campaigns, vibrant colours set the mood and a party aesthetic is given off. According to the Wang press release;“The images transport the viewer to a fictional gathering, a fantasy scenario that unfolds in the kitchen, the bathroom, on the dance floor, in the elevator, or a performer’s Green Room; all that seem to be behind the scenes. We see them captured in paparazzi-style arrivals images, and in an early morning Walk of Shame. The fictional plot depicts late-night debauchery with some surprising guest cameos.”
