Modern Icon – Gucci’s Stirrup Bag makes its mark in this slick editorial lensed by Denise Boomkens for Vogue Japan’s September issue. Styled by Satoshi Hirota, model Valeria Smirnova is strict and sexy in a rich wardrobe from the brand’s nocturnal fall collection. The stirrup theme and fetish undertones are taken stylistically further with the editorial’s stable setting, where Valeria’s porcelain complexion and dark clothing contrasts beautifully against her equine co-star. / Hair by Kanada, Make-up by Coco
