For its Spring/Summer 2015 advertisements, Valentino designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have chosen new talent Michal Pudelka of Slovakia. This is the photographer’s first international campaign and features an ethereal take on the new collection.
Models Maartje Verhoef, Grace Simmons, Hedvig Palm, Vanessa Moody and Clémentine Deraedt are mermaids posing on the sandy beach, or wood nymphs while lounging in an enchanted forest setting.

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are no literalists, though. The techniques they have at their fingertips pristine, crunchy, cutout tablecloth linen, rippling treatments of georgette, mind-blowing embroideries of minute feathers, beads, and crystals have been passed down directly, hand-to-hand, from the master himself, but they’ve been lightened up. So much so, that you can see a good deal of skin these days through the dresses on a Valentino runway.
