'Girl with a Pearl Earring' - the VALENTINO collection featuring pearls, midnight blue, blood red, lace and ermine, for Fall/Winter 2013/14 Ready-to-Wear Valentino's creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli aimed to bring the paintings of the 'Dutch Golden Age' of Flemish artists like Rembrandt and Johannes Vermeer to life. Inspired by the unsettling beauty of 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' which is one of Vermeer's masterworks, the graceful and restrained collection is unveiled in a new clip which takes us behind the scenes on the campaign, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
Featuring mostly newcomers including Maud Welzen, Kati Nescher, Magdalena Jasek, Irina Kravchenko, Sam Rollinson, Erika Labanauskaite, Tamara Weijenberg, Laura Kampman, Nouk Torsing and Sasha Luss. The girls pose next to still-life images that reflect the Flemish style including flowers, fruit and feathers surrounding the season’s accessories.
