Screw January — as far as fashion is concerned, September marks the start of a fresh year. Not only is Fashion Week around the corner, but the biggest magazine issues of the year are plopping on doorsteps, fattened by pages and pages of glorious ads. The advertising images that run in September issues are fashion brands' splashiest campaign of the year, with no expense spared on famous faces, top-notch stylists, and stunning locations. All this in the name of communicating the designer's big picture vision for the season — and selling a few bags, of course.
We've gathered all of the top ads here for your paper-free flipping pleasure. Find nearly 100 pages including glorious group shots from Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, and Miu Miu; major models like Kendall Jenner for Fendi and Karlie Kloss in Versace; and celebrity appearances like Ciara for Roberto Cavalli.
