Gucci Advertisements (Fall/Winter 1996 vs. Spring/Summer 2013)

FROM THEN TO NOW...
 
 
Upon first glance of the new Spring/Summer 2013 ad campaign for Gucci, I instantly thought about the house's imagery from 1996...   
The new advertisements, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, feature a bevy of contemporary models and bold, bright colors...

But, my only concern is that I hope the current campaign is just a nod towards the splendid ads that former designer, Tom Ford created with photographer Mario Testino (circa the mid-1990's), and not a bad sign that current, Gucci designer Frida Gianinni is running out of creative ideas?! ...*bites nails*...

From the body positioning of the models, to the clothing and logo placement, and even the way some of the photos are cropped, it just all screams GUCCI 1996 ADVERTISEMENTS (at least, to me, they do). But hey, who am I...
