The ink is black, the page is white

I love the simplicity of the current Givenchy campaign by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. There's a lot of subtle action going on in what would otherwise be fairly straightforward studio shots, and by straying from their usual (also outstanding) gray backgrounds in favor of higher contrast, it somehow helps capture the somewhat aggressive-seeming attitude of Givenchy very well.

Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci is guest creative director for the current issue of A Magazine as well – definitely worth a trip to the newsstand.
