Joseph Altuzarra debuted his romantic Resort ’14 collection earlier this month, and while shooting his lookbook, he and photographer Simon Cave had a thought. “We came across the idea of wanting to make something that was atmospheric and more of a visual manifestation of the Altuzarra woman,” the pair told Style.com. Enter Altuzarra’s heady black-and-white Resort ’14 film, which, styled by Vanessa Traina and Melanie Huynh, stars models Magdalena Jasek, Manuela Frey, and Kayley Chabot. Directed and set to some moody beats by Cave, the short sees its heroines dressed up in pieces that, as Altuzarra explains, “were very strong in silhouette and details. We wanted to create something that was very classic in mood, and highlight the masculine and feminine contrasts.” Blindfolds and fluttering veils of sheer black and white chiffon lend an air of mystery to the spot that, we have to admit, is seriously sexy. “A large part of the collection was about exploring the idea of seduction and sensuality, with lace details and lingerie elements in many of the pieces,” said Altuzarra. “The blindfolds and veils were an extension of this concept of seduction and provocation.” Catch the sultry film’s debut above, exclusively on Style.com.
