The subject gracefully captured in the Luisa Spagnoli AW11/12 campaign appears to be sightseeing in the great English city, yet the observer of these prepossessing prints will be sure to find her outfits more engrossing than the scenery. One can only guess the complete narrative behind these glamorous pictures, but thankfully the viewer is granted open access to the exquisite styles that Charlotte Cordes flaunts with a subtle confidence.
There's a youthful yet luxurious sophistication to each outfit the girl wears, incorporating textured A-line trench coats, tweed suits and detailed diaphanous dresses. Every look would attract envious eyes from street passers-by, though Michelangelo di Battista has photographed nearly vacant city scenes. The technique gives the Luisa Spagnoli AW11/12 campaign an elegant intimacy that emphasizes the grandeur of each garment.
