Vanessa Beecroft Presents Valentino's "Rockstud Untitled" Campaign
A simple showcase of the collection’s minimal pieces.
To present its “Rockstud Untitled” campaign, Valentino teamed up with Vanessa Beecroft to deliver a one-minute collection preview. The performance artist, who you’ll recognize as a long-time Kanye West collaborator, delivers her usual simplistic aesthetic to showcase the collection of pieces that include trench coats, trousers, turtlenecks and leather clutches at the New York Academy of Art setting. Seen are 25 men and women — some of who are professional models, others casted from off the street — staggered on wooden pallets for a video that’s silent up until the last 15 seconds.
