The Vogue Italia September 2014 Valentino Haute Couture editorial displays the high end label's current collection via photographers Max Von Gumppenberg and Patrick Bienert. In spite of the precise nature of the apparel, the images are hazy as a fog obscures the display of the ensembles.
Valentino Haute Couture is set in decrepit bathrooms and empty stairwells. Although cracked walls and cement floors provide the backdrop, this only contributes to the striking beauty of the pieces showcased.
Delivered to viewers in these images are floor-length patterned dresses, cut out gowns, Grecian wrap dresses and embroidered cloaks. Accessories also play a central role as the female models sported high rise gladiator sandals in varying shades, all of which feature thin straps.
