Raf Simons' has always been under the microscope, especially during his time at Jil Sander, but that went to a completely new level when he was confirmed as the new creative director of Dior last month. With all eyes on him in the run up to his debut at Dior for the brand's Haute Couture show in Paris this July, it makes sense that i-D chose him to cover their 'Lights, Camera, Action' summer issue shot by Willy Vanderperre.

Karlie Kloss has cemented herself as one of the busiest models in the business, featuring in campaigns ranging from Hermes to Christian Dior and now she's got another brand under belt. Yesteday Aquascutum confirmed that Kloss will front it's Autumn/Winter 2010-11 campaign. But the model will not be alone. Matt Benstead, Jacob Coupe and Tristan Knights appear too.
The brand drew on the inspirations from the latest collection when deciding on the concept of the campaign. "For our autumn/winter 2010 campaign we wanted to capture the mood and atmosphere of the stormy seascapes of J.M.W Turner's paintings and the aesthetic of 'The French Lieutenant's Woman'; both inspirations for the autumn/winter 2010 Aquascutum collection," said Berlina Earl, the brand's CEO told Vogue.com.
The campaign, shot by Willy Vandeperre, debuts in the July issue of L'Uomo Vogue and was styled by long time contributor, Edward Enninful. "We have worked with Willy Vanderperre and Karlie Kloss for the second season; I feel they understand and reflect the refined sense of Aquascutum's British heritage".
