Brian Doben and Olaf Hajek for Lily of France
Brian Doben and Olaf Hajek collaborate on a new ad campaign for lingerie company Lily of France. Doben photographed the models in the brand's lingerie while Hajek created the background illustrations.
Doben photographed the models in a studio in New York City. The casting of the models was specific to the brand and the ads. The model rests on a moon created especially for the shoot. Doben says Hajek created "beautiful work, really fantastic," and that he had a great time helping to bring the illustrations to life in the photographs.
Hajek loved the idea of combining painting and photography in a project. Floral and natural elements are recurring themes in his artwork and he was excited to use them "to create a wonderful, fairytale-like universe in which the women present the sophisticated products from Lily of France." Hajek adds that the painted text resembles the style of old French posters.
