Fashion icon Mario Testino has shot the latest campaign for Roberto Cavalli.
Supermodels Isabeli Fontana, Malgosia Bela and Sui He star in the new campaign for luxury Italian fashion label Roberto Cavalli. With her appearance in the shoot, 23-year-old Sui He is becoming one of Asia’s biggest fashion names. The Chinese model was the first Asian to open a Ralph Lauren show, and the second Asian woman to walk in a Victoria’s Secret show when she appeared in the lingerie brand’s 2011 annual extravaganza.
Polish star Bela and Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana also feature, the trio photographed by Testino in the stunning Art Deco-style Freemasons Hall in London, built in the 1930s by architects H. V. Ashley and Winton Newman.
The three supermodels lounge on lavish furs surrounded by luxurious marble architecture and show off the collection which features engineered python and leopard prints, seductive cutouts, and delicate white leather dresses.
Flowing silk tailoring and metallic accessories add to the glamour, and tiger necklaces and black and white leopard head prints capture some animal aggression. The brand describes the campaign as “inspired by Roberto Cavalli’s passion for women.”
Cavalli has also released an exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the shoot on its YouTube channel.
Based in Milan, Italy, Roberto Cavalli founded his namesake fashion label in 1970 and opened his first boutique in 1972 in Saint-Tropez. Alongside the main luxury label, Cavalli also operates a second ‘Just Cavalli’ line, and the brand has recently opened branches of its Cavalli Caffè restaurants in New Delhi and Beirut, with a new location planned for Mumbai later in 2013.
