Contemporary Vision

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli’s feminine designs have breathed new excitement into the house of Valentino and in Pop‘s F/W issue Sean and Seng share their interpretation of Chiuri & Piccioli’s look with a stunning editorial that capitalizes on the romantic feel of the clothing. Mixing hard edged black and white shots with soft focus color images, the duo creates a dramatic mood, enhanced by Jacquelyn Jablonski‘s’s impressive posing throughout the story and Tamara Rothstein‘s skillful styling.

  1. i wouldnt call any of the posing in this editorial ‘impressive’ apart from the second photo. usually her poses are much more dynamic, even though this editorial is simple the clothes could have been elevated with more shape.

  2. @ Jake: I do think the posing is impressive. It’s so delicate. The clothes and setting don’t ask for dynamic posing.

  3. Stunning.

    And not enough praise can be bestowed upon Chiuri and Piccioli for harnessing the ability to encompass the essence of what makes Valentino “Valentino”.

    Many wonderful pieces last season, in and out of show. More extraordinary pieces out. Thank heavens….

    Jacquelyn is living in these looks. Wonderful presence. She bares resemblance to Madame Callas… an inescapable vortex of power!

  4. @ Nigel- I agree that Chiuri and Piccioli are improving more and more each season (I still love Allesandra Facchinetti, though).

    JJ is really growing on me, as well.

  5. She really has a strong presence for such a young girl.. love how her face always looks different. Beautiful.
