February 2016's fab fashion and footwear billboards gracing L.A.'s skies...

February may be speeding by quickly, but even though it's a shorter month than most (getting a sneaky extra day this Leap Year), there's been no shortage of billboard ads filling the city skyline these past few weeks. After a poor showing last month, the skies are a veritable catwalk of new season fashion this month, with high street and high-end looks trying to tempt you to part with your well-earned money.

Fashion billboards
Sam Edelman Gigi Thong Sandal billboard
First up in this collection of stylish ads is this poolside ad creative from Sam Edelman's designer shoes, for his Gigi Thong Sandal, signaling that Spring has well and truly spring in L.A., especially with all the recent hot weather.

if you think this billboard is rather 'cheeky', you should also take a look at some of these previous provocative Sam Edelman shoe billboards.
Stuart Weitzman Spring 2016 shoes billboard
Not to be outdone in the sexy shoe department, Stuart Weitzman has replaced Gisele Bundchen with models Joan Smalls, Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge to show off his latest Spring looks.

If you're a fan of the footwear brand, be sure to check out these previous Stuart Weitzman shoe billboards.

Saint Laurent Palladium 2016 billboard
Music and the fashion industry have always gone hand in hand throughout history and that is still evident with French fashion house, Saint Laurent's latest collection.

A day before New York's infamous Fashion Week the fashion brand presented their men's Fall collection and part one of their women's looks at L.A.'s Hollywood Palladium
Saint Laurent Palladium Feb 2016 billboard
This duo of billboards along the rocking Sunset Strip were just two of the ads heralding the fashion event at the iconic venue.
Gap 1969 New Generation denim billboard
This Spring it looks like gap is going back to its roots with the classic denim looks that started it all and supporting its 1969 New Generation offering with some super-sized ad creatives.
Rosie Huntington Whiteley Paige S16 billboard
Meanwhile the luxe denim brand Paige was using Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to help turn heads this month.
Madewell Jeans Spring 2016 billboard
Every other jeans company seems to have a model leaning against a car this month, like in this Madewell denim billboard.
AG Jeans Spring 2016 billboard
And in this nighttime AG Jeans ad creative featuring Daria Werbowy. And they say originality is dead.
Diamond skateboarder special extension billboard
And finally, this fun special extension billboard for skate and street wear brand, Diamond Supply Co., caught my eye this month along Melrose Avenue, in its regular strategic ad location opposite Fairfax High School. It's a shame that the skateboarding ramp ad creative is so dark and that this billboard site doesn't get the best direct light at this time of year to properly highlight the gimmick.

As you can see there's quite an assortment of styles filling L.A.'s skies this February and I'm sure more will follow in March.

Take a look at what was in vogue last year with these February 2015 fashion billboards and stay tuned in the days to come for more snapshots of L.A.'s TV, film, music and lifestyle outdoor ads making the streets more interesting.

Until then, stay stylish...
