Stylish fashion billboards around L.A. in August 2013...

So far this month we've seen round-ups of the best movie, drinks and lifestyle billboards, now it's time for a bit of flair and drama with this stylish collection of fashion billboards from around the streets of Los Angeles.

Fashion billboards
Banana Republic issa Collection queens guard billboard
Being British this new Banana Republic billboard for their special edition Issa Collection really spoke to me with its Queen's Guards on parade. The limited collection pairs Kate Middleton's favourite designer Issa London's chic feminine shapes and signature prints with the U.S. retailer's effortless modern looks.

Meanwhile this for this fall season Adriano Goldschmied (one of the founder's of the Diesel clothing brand who is no longer with this new company that bears his name) filled this skies of L.A. with their latest sophisticated denim on denim looks and an array of new billboard creatives.

This fashion editorial story looks like it was taken along some American highway in the mountains, which gives it a cool, edgy feel.

Another company big on denim this season is Gap, returning to its roots with its 'Back to blue' ad creatives which star the granddaughter of literary legend, Ernest Hemingway, model Dree Hemingway.

Another model with famous heritage is Georgia May Jagger, the daughter of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and supermodel Jerry Hall, back again for another ad campaign in mono for Hudson Jeans.

And speaking of jeans, it would be churlish not to mention Levi's simple, back to basics 'Made & Crafted' billboard along Melrose Avenue this month.

Fron denim jeans to far more luxurious attire and Gucci really raised the fashion stakes in August with this glamorous new pre-fall season creative featuring Daria Strokous.

Meanwhile Prada seemed to step back in time a tad with this 'heroin chic' billboard with Amanda Murphy looking a bit pale and like she could use a good meal in this ad creative.

And even though the sun is still shining brightly and the heat rising in L.A., the ads, like this one for Tommy Hilfiger, keep coming with their winter looks (it's the strangest thing and something which has always dumfounded me about fashion).

It's not that I don't like the creatives, I just find them ill-timed. In fact I really like this wonderfully autumnal looking ad for Hale Bob along Sunset Boulevard.

Meanwhile the designer known for her infamous wrap dress, Diane von Furstenburg, was back in the skies along Sunset Plaza with this new creative.

And Hollywood A-Lister Nicole Kidman brought some edgy sophistication and sexy style to Jimmy Choo's Fall/Winter ad campaign, especially with this super-sized billboard along the Sunset Strip.

And speaking of funky footwear, although clearly not as expensive, Aldo Shoes also debuted a new creative this month with 'Give me Aldo'.

Another shoe brand that caught my eye with some clever advertising was this 'We love L.A.' billboard design from Keds, where spotty red shoes form a heart shape.

Being a runner I never trust sneakers (or trainers as we call them in the U.K.) that look overly-designed. Sadly these Adidas Springblades look like they may be style over substance and a bit of a fashion fad.

In the world of jewelry this explosive ad for Circa of Beverly Hills made an impact this month.

And even though most fashion brands were putting away their summer looks in favour of winter woolens and thick coats, LFH Swim was still embracing summer in L.A. poolside with this bikini babe billboard.

As you can see it's been a month of change for fashion and will no doubt continue to evolve in the weeks to come.

Be sure to check out this month's movie billboards and lifestyle billboards in L.A. and stay tuned for a sneak peak at all the new TV show billboards invading the city skyline at the start of a new fall television season...
