    Clements Ribeiro's Fall/Winter 2013 Campaign by Uli Weber

    Clements Ribeiro tapped Uli Weber to shoot the London-based brand's fall/winter campaign.

    "This is the second season I've worked with Suzanne [Clements] and Inacio [Ribeiro], and we became good friends as well, so we have a strong working relationship," said Weber. "We bounce ideas backwards and forwards." For the spring 2013 ads, Weber photographed a pair of models in a studio; this time, "It was a mutual decision to take it outside, on-location, rather than against a seamless background ... after a long search, we found the perfect place to reflect the collection," he noted.  

    The backdrop was a private, turn-of-the century house in the British capital that contains "the most beautiful wallpaper," according to Weber, "so we concentrated very much on surfaces instead of actual themes. We felt the collection was so intricate that we'd do a still shoot – there's not much movement in it – in front of a wonderful surface or stained glass window. It didn't need much else ... the designers like something straightforward so viewers can concentrate on the actual garments."

    Though, as Weber reiterated, the photos also "show how beautiful wallpaper can be."

    Uli Weber Shoots Clements Ribeiro's New Campaign

    Uli Weber teamed up with a longtime collaborator, fashion house Clements Ribeiro, to launch its first web campaign to reinvigorate its e-commerce site. The campaign went live last week on the first day of London Fashion Week. The images depict two models as twins and takes stylistic cues from Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom." The film's heroine's 60's school girl chic style was the inspiration for the spring collection.

    "We are very serious about our Web site and shop because the Web is still virgin territory, to a degree, and we are a small, independent company, so this is a way for us to connect with our customers without intermediaries," said Inacio Ribeiro to WWD. "We are excited about being on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram - my favorite - about being truly independent and being in touch with our customers."

    Uli Weber's La Cage aux Folles Campaign

    Theater-goers are eagerly anticipating the revival of La Cage Aux Folles on Broadway this spring, starring Emmy Award-winner Kelsey Grammer and Olivier Award-winner Douglas Hodge. The Spotco advertising agency is responsible for the playful neon pink-tinged campaign, shot by Uli Weber. The poster is accompanied by a video that is currently being broadcasted and shown online, also directed by Weber.

    The campaign went through many iterations, some were deemed too cold, too aggressive, or not loud enough for Broadway and the flashy marquees of Times Square. Finally, Spotco found its winner with the silhouettes of men against the neon-hued letters of "La Cage."


    Says Drew Hodges, the founder of Spotco advertising agency, "This is a campaign that you could put on a billboard in times square and see from 10 blocks away; and it still gets so much personality out of it and I know that I can make many, many iterations of this campaign for years to come. It's got enough personality but enough flexibility that I can make anything up from a matchbook to a billboard and all still have it be within the same brand personality of La Cage."

    "La Cage" is directed by Terry Johnson and playing at the Longacre Theatre. Previews have already begun since April 6th, 2010; the show opens April 18th, 2010. If you are a fan of the original show, be sure to fall in love with the show again.
