As se are getting towards the finish line of the voting process of our 5th Annual Awards, it is time to look again at the nominations for the Best Underwear or Swimwear Campaign in 2018. Voting is open until the 17th February 2019 and the voting form is here. Campaigns set the tone of a specific collection and speak, in their own way, about the brand’s identity and character. Let’s find out the brands that did an amazing job in presenting their collections in 2018. The nominees are:
Alexander COBB – Icarus
The Danish/Swiss brand presented a beautiful set of photos for their swimwear collection 2018 called Icarus. The collection got inspired by Greek mythology and more specifically from the myth of Icarus and his unsuccessful escape from Crete with his father Daedalus. You can see the full campaign here. Photography is by Sasa Bozunovic with model Zoki Rajak.
Andrew Christian – Pride Collection
Last year’s winner, Andrew Christian, is nominated again this year for their Pride Line campaign. Andrew Christian produces a lot of photos for their collections every year, setting the tone in direct link to the image of the brand. In 2018 their Pride Collection campaign images were photographed against a full on pink backdrop featuring their designs on quite a few of their exclusive models.

aussieBum – Stan underwear
One more brand that produces consistently great images is aussieBum.
