The stunning Australian model Chrystal Copland donned Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2013-2014 gowns in a “Dark Couture” fashion editorial shot in Paris for ELLE Vietnam September 2013 issue by Benjamin Kanarek and styled by Sohei Yoshida.
Chrystal was adorned in the likes of Chanel, Valentino, Giambattista Valli, Elie Saab, Stéphane Rolland, Maison Martin Margiela, Atelier Versace, Dior, Armani Privé, Schiaparelli by Christian Lacroix, Alexis Mabille, Gaultier Paris.
A cinematic dilapidated and raw outbuilding of the Galerie Italienne was a perfect framing for a highly contrasted chic and luxurious Couture style, with pieces of art from Alberto Biagetti and Bernat Sanso.
Dark Couture is one of the most ambitious photo productions ever organised for ELLE Vietnam.
