Steven Meisel Photographs Alyda Grace, Achenrin Madit and Lexi Boling for Ports 1961’s 60th Anniversary Campaign

Ports 1961 is up there with heavyweight brands like Christian Dior and Prada in the eyes of our forum members. It’s all thanks to Karl Templer and Fabien Baron’s vision for the label since becoming co-creative directors back in 2019. From the get-go, the creative twosome secured forum favorite Steven Meisel as the fashion house’s campaign photographer. A series of splendid campaigns came our way for Spring 2020, Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and now Fall 2021. To celebrate its monumental 60th anniversary, Meisel returns to capture models Alyda Grace, Achenrin Madit and Lexi Boling for a series of flawless black and white portraits.

“Who else could make such a simple studio photoshoot so effortlessly captivating and beautiful? Brilliant campaign as expected. Meisel has still got such an excellent eye for new models! I’ve never heard of Alyda before, but she’s stunning in both images, the close-up is stellar! Also great to see old favorite Lexi again as well as Achenrin who looks magnificent,” praised aracic.
