Default Re: Barbara: Reitmans, Winter 2008

In addition to viewing the current Encore gallery at the Reitmans site, fans of Mrs. Brickner should definitely peruse the online flyer as well. One page includes the first artistic (as opposed to strictly catalogue) photo from Reitmans in several seasons--a return to a motif that was always very popular in Barbara's Encore campaigns, a shot of the model being adored by a GQ-type male admirer.

Barbara looks seductively full and curvaceous in this sleeveless top, and, as other readers have noted, the longer hair significantly augments her allure. The persona that she creates in this image is extremely appealing--a well-fed goddess enjoying the good life to which her beauty entitles her. Long-time admirers of the Encore campaigns will notice that Barbara has traded in her previous GQ for a younger model--as is only right, since her generous self-indulgence has given her perpetual youth, and enables her to enslave the heart of any man she wishes. She looks every bit as seductive here as she did in any of her Mode editorials; possibly more so. The top suggests the decadent proportions of the figure beneath. And notice that the male admirer embraces her tenderly by the waist--perhaps the most sensual physical feature on a lusciously-proportioned goddess.

How encouraging to see a new burst of creativity from Reitmans, whose campaigns are always distinguished by the finest model choices, but reach yet-more-stellar heights when they also incorporate intriguing themes or settings.
