Although we have had a good look at Atelier Versace’s fall collection in an array of editorials this past month, the lookbook has just been released and features Monika Jagaciak wearing the label’s stunning creations. With pleats, crystals and asymmetrical cuts, the latest outing from Atelier Versace offers a lesson in elegance and glamour.
Going in a more darker direction for the fall season, Alberta Ferretti’s latest campaign enlists Paolo Roversi to photograph a series of film style advertisements. Starring Monika Jagaciak and Sigrid Agren, the moody images bring a whole new layer to the label’s feminine collection of outerwear and detail orientated dresses styled by Anastasia Barbieri.
Prada’s fall 2010 collection comes alive with the label’s fantasy lookbook which takes a look at the past season through the illustrations of Alexander Reichert and Fausto Fantinuoli with photography by Phillip Meech. Featuring models such as Miranda Kerr, Barbara Palvin, Lara Stone, Monika Jagaciak, Kasia Struss, Kirsi Pyrhonen, Valerija Kelava, Maryna Linchuk, Ginta Lapina and others, the images go from the runway to the streets in retro style artwork.
As with last season, the fall collection from Valentino’s Haute Couture line takes some risks with its exaggerated proportions and structural complexities. Yet whatever risks the collection may take, they are offset by a cool color palette of cream, black and a hint of that signature Valentino red. When looking at the garments, one can imagine that the range was made for a young and feminine woman with the understated hair and makeup that made the show’s “wow moments” that much more powerful.
