Resort Shoot at Palazzo Gangi in Palermo
December 11, 2014
At this point, you might have seen our Resort issue of The Book – if not, you can always flip through it here. It contains a beautiful array of editorials featuring some of our faves from the Resort 2015 collections. “Prints of Pop,” photographed by Alistair Taylor-Young, was a particular treat for our creative team to work on.
Back in August, a small crew took off to a spectacular location in Palermo, Italy, where they shot printed ensembles from Derek Lam, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, Narciso Rodriguez and more. The location was the Palazzo Gangi, a unique aristocratic residency and home to Princess Carine Vanni Mantegna.
We gasped and swooned at the sight of every high-ceilinged room in this Versailles-esque Italian house, where Louis XIV, baroque and neoclassical styles meet Sicilian flair. Our clothes and accessories exude the spirit of a modern aristocrat, in the way that glamour and effortless style often meet at NM.
