Magic in Venice
Few Italian cities are as enchanting and as inspirational as Venice. Boasting the world’s largest amount of artistic masterpieces per square kilometer and some of the world’s most intricate architecture, this sensational city never fails to get the creative juices flowing. Sylvia and Greg wanted photos inspired by high-end fashion editorials and the city of water became the perfect backdrop.
Sylvia and Greg selected the sumptuous, canal-side Aman, Venice as their hotel and primary location for our shoot. Set within the 16th century Palazzo Popodopoli and overlooking the Grand Canal, the 24 rooms of Aman Venice are perfectly poised for photos. We started our shoot by utilizing the gorgeous interior textures of the hotel before venturing out into the city with the team from Venice First as our guides. There is nothing more romantic and enchanting than an evening ride on a gondola through the canals of Venice and we took full advantage of the magic for our shoot.
After a day spent chasing canals, the spacious, light-filled rooms and two private gardens at the Aman were a welcome respite from shooting in the tightly-packed city.
For wardrobe, Sylvia collaborated with fashion designers Ermanno Scervino and Suzanne Harward for a regal and romantic selection, so our team put a lot of thought into each location in order to play up the textures of her look.
