The new ELISABETTA FRANCHI Fall/Winter 2018-19 campaign has been filmed in a 70ies style location. The protagonists take action in a vintage atmosphere enhanced by the wooden walls, and they present the outfits as colour explosions on the pale blue background of the hall. Tartan and maxi bows on the necklines are mixed with the brightness of the vinyl, sequins and laminated fabrics, creating impressive contrasts, where irony and sophistication coexist.
Lying down on the soft sofas and moquettes, or walking confident like sculptures, these fascinating protagonists express complicity and melancholy at the same time. Nadine Leopold’s charismatic beauty is a tribute to Monica Vitti: her blond hair and the blue shades on the eyes surrounded by a “rain of freckles”, clearly reminds the Italian (non) diva, who perfectly embodies the essence of the Fall/Winter 2018-19 collection.
A movie Star who have been able to inspire people, thanks to her charm, irony and sense of humour, being conscious that these qualities were the origin of her strength.
The campaign is signed by one of the most prestigious names in the international fashion scene: Mariano Vivanco. The incredible talent of this photographer and film-maker in unveiling the natural soul of the subject is the highlight of the new Fall/Winter 2018-19 collection.

Hello, are you there? Are you ready for a summer song with dance-pop appeal and island rhythm? Jax Jones wants to be your go to hip shaker with “Ring Ring,” a collaboration with London-based singer Mabel with a feature from New York City’s Rich the Kid.
The English producer is no stranger to chart success. His breakout “I Got U” with Duke Dumont reached No. 13 on the Hot 100 in 2014, and he’s held strong with solo productions “You Don’t Know Me,” “Instruction” and “Breathe” in the past year.
“Ring Ring” has a certain richness to it, a sensual depth to counterbalance the catchy pop hook, a definite groove to get things heated as the sun goes down. Rich the Kid, who you can catch this summer at Hot 100 Fest in New York, also helps out on the chorus.
Jones released “Ring Ring” with a playful visual that’ll have you reaching for the snacks. Enjoy the guiltless ear candy below.
British number one and Jaguar UK ambassador, Johanna Konta, is bidding to be the first British woman to lift the Wimbledon title in over 40 years. Konta reached the semi-finals at the All England Club last year, helping the 27-year-old climb to a career-high fourth in the rankings.
She is ready to “fight till the end” to go one better at Wimbledon. Konta warns, “I will be an entertainer and I will be aggressive.”
British No.1, Kyle Edmund, has today stated his ambition to become the best tennis player in the world as he prepares to take the Wimbledon Championships by storm next week. Speaking exclusively as part of Jaguar’s Show Your Edge content series, Edmund describes how his self-belief has been the driving force behind his impressive recent form.“I have developed a belief that there is no one I can’t beat and I’m at a stage now where I do not fear anyone.”
Edmund has shot up through the rankings this year and believes one asset in particular can give him the edge. “In my opinion I have the best forehand in the world. My ball striking is the best it has ever been, I have all the tools and that gives me great confidence going into Wimbledon.” The 23-year-old certainly isn’t shy in sharing where he feels his ambitions can take him. “There are so many things to accomplish”, Edmund says, “there’s always the determination to achieve more and, of course, eventually becoming number one in the world is one of those.”
Jaguar UK ambassador, Edmund, is approaching his first Wimbledon as British number one with a composed optimism, described how his predecessor has helped him build his edge. “I’ve spent four off seasons with Andy (Murray) and I remember thinking this guy is number three in the world, his work ethic is incredible, if that is what number three looks like, I can’t expect to work less and get higher than that. There are no shortcuts in this game.”
The short film is the first in a three-part series of ‘Show Your Edge’ films that will offer insight into the journeys of British tennis’ three biggest stars; Edmund, Johanna Konta and Andy Murray, as we approach the start of the Wimbledon Championships next week. Jaguar is entering its fourth season as the Official Car of The Championships, Wimbledon which runs from Monday 2 July to Sunday 15 July. Jaguar will supply 170 vehicles from its award-winning range, including the XE, XF, XJ and F-PACE as well as the new, all electric I-PACE driving over 30,000 journeys during the tournament.
Andy is a tennis player from Dunblane in Scotland who has reached the very top of the tennis rankings. He’s won 45 career titles and is the 2012 & 2016 Olympic singles champion, 2012 US Open Champion and the 2013 & 2016 Wimbledon Champion.
Today is as determined as ever after 11 months away from the sport he loves.
