VALENTINO PRE-FALL 2015
BOHO CHIC WITH A “BOTTICELLI” TWIST
Shot in the in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava by Michal Pudelka, the Valentino pre-fall 2015 ad campaign channels the house’s free-spirited boho edge, breaking away from the dreamy and gauzy mermaids of spring. The shoot stars models Maartje Verhoef, Ine Neefs and Grace Hartzel, framed by graphic interiors where a play of symmetries and mirrors sets off an exquisite line-up that nods at the Seventies with a fresh dose of modern sensuality.
Creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli teamed up with textile designer Celia Birtwell, who created ornate and exclusive florals inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s “La Primavera” that adorn chic girly dresses and tops.
As always the duo infused the collection with their signature accoutrements - lace, studs and embroideries – reinvented to pretty and youthful effect.
