“We have to keep women’s freedom to express themselves, to express their bodies in a very free way,” Valentino Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli said in a preview for their Spring 2024 collection show. “Paris, A Night’s Tale”, the House’s Spring 2024 campaign, embodied a similar sentiment to Piccioli’s by capturing a dream-like feel of femininity.
Shot at the Place Vendôme in the heart of Paris, photographer Theo Wenner captured ethereal outfits within the framework of a neoclassical setting.
Whether cradled in a sofa’s cushion or lounging on a chair, the model’s contemplative looks combined with soft garbs melded for an elegant atmosphere. Heading them up was English model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, known for her work at Victoria’s Secret and Burberry, clothed in a wool sweater with strands of embroidery strung like holiday lights.
The hues of Place Vendôme’s backdrop served as a focal point for the soft aesthetic of the campaign wardrobe. From a white-suited attendant arranging a vase of flowers to crystal chandeliers hanging in the distance, background elements of each scene added character.
Coming this month, these styles and more will become available both online and in Valentino boutiques until the end of the holiday season.
