Valentino and the Flemish painters

Painters keep inspiring fashion photographers. First it was the Zubi catalog, and now Valentino has chosen the Flemish works from the XVIth and XVIIth centuries as the base of their Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin were inspired by the still life works of Jan Frans van Dael, Jacob Vosmaer and Jan Brueghel, artists from the County of Flandes that succeeded in the late Gothic and early Renaissance, inaugurating a painting style that would influence everything for decades in Europe.

The models of the Valentino campaign are Maud Welzen, Kati Nescher, Magdalena Jasek, Irina Kravchenko, Sam Rollinson, Erika Labanauskaite, Tamara Weijenberg, Laura Kampman, Nouk Torsing and Sasha Luss. They pose wearing the designs by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli at the front of the Italian house, next to the still life paintings of flowers and fruits, mixed with the accessories of the collection. The inspiration of the designers for this season collection also came from the paintings by the Dutch master Vermeer, specially “Girl with a pearl earring”.

One of my favourite editorials: Inez & Vinoodh for Visionaire

This is one of my favourite editorials ever. I had the picture above in my school folder. It is so cool. It makes you see that you don’t need a high budget to make a good photoshoot. Well, Inez & Vinoodh probably ask for a quite high salary… hahah.
