I just couldn't resist not showing you this editorial even if it's a bit older, but the editorial concept is amazing. Inspired by last year's most stunning Haute Couture collections, Benjamin Kanarek put them in a misty and mysterious light to enhance the lightness of the shapes and fabrics. The result is fantastic - a mix of drapings and flowy dresses all in the decorum of a mansion-like hotel in Paris, The Bristol.
Featuring couture garments from designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel, Dior, Elie Saab, Maison Martin Margiela and Valentino among others, the editorial is absolutely stunning, just right for a Sunday afternoon of day dreaming!
And here's the behind the scenes video:
Isn't Haute Couture the best remedy for anything? I just love these photos, I could stare at them all day long! What's your favorite dress? I just can't decide, I'm torn between the light fabric in the pastel Elie Saab dress, the fabulous back detail and the feather skirt in the Givenchy one and the fabulous white chiffon Valentino bell-dress.
