Paris fashion week. Few days before their show here it comes, as usual, the so long awaited pictures from the Loewe house to kill the wait and make us wonder what will be shown on the catwalk. No clothes, no accessories nor fashionable objects, just a Vittoria Ceretti with her mouth covered by fruit, which is summer’s undisputed protagonist since ever.
Bright and happy colors dominate the composition of these images that, through Steven Meisel’s masterly lens, get a pictorial cut with references to Arcimboldo and Caravaggio’s tradition and Irving Penn’s photography. By the way the result is extremely new and contemporary, everyone loves it and is attracted by… so let the final countdown to the show start!
