I`m head over heels for this fantastic collection! It has everything that I love and appreciate so much about Massimiliano Giornetti & Ferragamo: a clear mono-colour-palette (here: black, white & midnight-blue), mixed in a subtle & tasteful way on classical shapes, complemented with 'futuristic/avantgarde'-elements that are actually wearable! Giornetti knows how and where they work: at the margins - he works them as overly-long sleeves, asymmetrical hemlines, at the back of the skirts and in the shoes.
He delivers brilliant and complicated constructions that I last saw at Helmut Lang 2003 AND mixes them with the classy type of sex-appeal that I last saw at Tom Ford for Gucci!
Liu Wen, Liya Kebede and Iselin Steiro are the protagonists of the new Roberto Cavalli Fall/Winter 2013/2014 advertising campaign, which perfectly embodies the elegance and style of the Cavalli Maison.
Mario Testino shot the images and the video at the historical building, 45 Ave D’Iena, in downtown Paris.
At the end of an elegant and refined party, a car attends three beautiful aristocratic women, with slender bodies and seductive gazes.
Another party awaits them: their beauty, permeated with charm, appeal and glamour will be exalted once again by the distinctive and sophisticated clothing and accessories, which will make them stand out amongst all the other guests.
Floral prints, elegant furs, animal-print details and precious textiles highlight the contemporary aesthetics of the Maison, where art and craftsmanship are not limited to hand-painted clothing and accessories, but also extended to the dresses embellished with crystals, studs and small chains creating a sensual “armor” effect, for women who are confident and who love and want to be loved.
The creative vision is inspired by Roberto Cavalli’s innate passion for women and his desire to capture their intrinsic beauty and charisma in an emotional and passionate way.
Three of my favourite supermodels in one campaign! I also love that mysterious night-atmosphere. The campaign leaves lots of space for fantasies and projections - another awesome work of art by Mario Testino!
