Vilebrequin x Massimo Vitali
Swimwear brand Vilebrequin have collaborated with beach photographer Massimo Vitali. Vitali has been passionately photographing beaches all over the world for the past 20 years, while Vilebrequin has been dressing bathers since 1971. The collaboration makes sense so together, they conceived a capsule collection where image, subject, and object come together thanks to a unique process of image manipulation.
For the shoot, Vitali chose the island of Porquerolles, near Hyeres, one of the few well-preserved vacation spots left on the Mediterranean that maintain a sense of authenticity.
Vitali’s image appears in a capsule collection consisting of a Moorea swimsuit, the Vilebrequin’s iconic model, and a tote bag. The elements in the landscape are transformed in layers of colour that go from azure blue to verdant green and sandy beige.
