Ottolinger AW19 Campaign illustrated by NYC-based artist Julien Ceccaldi

Designers Christa Bösch and Cosima Gadient collaborated with NYC-based artist Julien Ceccaldi to illustrate their favorite looks from their AW19 collection.


Bösch and Gadient eluded the traditional casting process, and instead picked out Ceccaldi’s skeleton-like characters as their models this season. The artist then dressed them up with their favorite looks from the AW19 collection which he translated into his own style.

The OTTOLINGER AW19 collection is mainly inspired by Liu Cixin’s Sci-Fi novel The Three-Body Problem, so it was completely natural for the designers to ditch IRL models for a more fantastic representation.

“We used a different medium this season because we wanted to transform the combination of the ordinary and the fantastic.”

– Christa Bösch and Cosima Gadient
