Heading from yesterday's black and white shots towards a darker, more etherial atmosphere, the fall ad campaign for Valentino is really enchanting! Shot in what resembles a palace, the dark, twisted romance intrigues the viewer and draws him into the atmosphere. I love the blurred effects in some of the shots, they add to the mystery of the surreal scene and put a focus on the clothes more than on the models wearing them.
Allthough I'm a bit sad that they replaced Freja Beha Erichsen with some less known models, they all did a great job in capturing the essence of the garments they were wearing and managed to create an elegant portrayal of what Valentino stands for.
Here are the photos from the ad campaign and right afterwards a behind the scenes video:
