Young, beautiful and super busy. They are called Ginevra Rossini e Melusine Ruspoli and are the faces chosen by Luisa Spagnoli to interpret his on social networks Spring-summer 2021. An eclectic collection, full of different volumes: from the most important shapes to the flowing silhouettes, from demi-couture constructions to the simplest lines. All in a color palette ranging from neutral tones but which also includes bright colors such as fuchsia or reds.
Why were they chosen? Because they best represent the idea of the young women who are part of the Club Luisa, an ideal circle where thechic and contemporary aesthetic, dynamic and versatile brand takes shape. But above all, because each of them interprets it in their own way. Thanks, too, to their strong personality, which is perfectly perceived through these intense portraits taken by Alessio Albi.
Let’s get to know them better.
GINEVRA ROSSINI: BETWEEN FASHION AND NATURE
Ginevra, from Milan, after a degree in Business Administration from Bocconi, she moved to New York to gain experience at Spring Studios. Here, his life in the world of creatives begins. But not only that, because after returning to Italy, in addition to always working in fashion, she also founded the charity Shanti International Onlus, which takes care of the little ones living in orphanages in India. A lover of travel and beauty, he has a great passion: that for horse riding.
Love that was born when she was little: «In the summer the children – Ginevra tells us – were playing on the beach, all except me! I preferred to go to the riding school. And so at the end of the summer they were very tanned and I, on the other hand, had the sign of the polo shirt! But I was very happy about it ».
And, to better reflect her personality, the shots, where she wears the clothes of Luisa Spagnoli, are set in a riding school, the Equestrian Center of Castellazzo. Here, between nature and wonderful thoroughbreds, he wears the looks of Spring-summer 2021.
From the military green blazer + bermuda suit to the cotton shirt dress with spectacular collar enriched with macramé lace inserts, to his favorite look: the one in jeans.
A suit that reminds her, as she herself tells us, «the simple elegance of Lady D»: White blazer, low-cut top, classic wash denim, the maxibag Nicoletta, in ecru canvas and brown leather. The result, we too agree, is extremely chic. «Comfortable and classy – continues Ginevra – which is exactly the concept of for me everyday luxury».
Your plans for the summer? Always on horseback, at least a week, “no more, otherwise my boyfriend will have pains in his legs for a month,” he tells us smiling.
MELUSINE RUSPOLI: ART AND CINEMA
Melusine, daughter of a former French model and Prince Alessandro Dado Ruspoli, is one of the faces of the Italian aristocracy. A life between Rome and Paris, where he made his debut on social media in 2013 at the famous Ball of the Debutantes, in Chanel Haute Couture and from there she also began her career in the fashion world. She has been photographed in numerous photo shoots for international magazines, from Officiel Italia to Vogue Spain.
Per Luisa Spagnoli interpreted the Spring-summer 2021 collection in these images taken remotely by the photographer Alessio Albi. In what sense remotely? In the most literal sense of the word: from afar, because this service was shot via webcam. He in Milan, and she in Los Angeles. But connected on the same wavelength, emotional. After all, the shooting via webcam, well represents the essence of these particular modern times and the new frontiers of digital-art.
The favorite garment you wore in this shoot? «The yellow dress with a floral pattern, very fresh and springtime» she confides when we reach her on the phone.
But above all he tells us about his personal concept of everyday luxury: «For me it means choosing to wear clothes, even very simple and casual, but of high quality and made of precious materials that last over time. I think it’s important, even for a speech by sustainability, avoid waste. No waste is my motto ».
Your plans for the summer? “I haven’t made any plans yet due to the pandemic in progress, – Melusine explains – but I hope to be able to return to Italy to spend time with my family and thus hug my friends again. And then, if possible, I would like to divide myself, as every year, between the family castle in the Viterbo area, the Amalfi coast and the Cote d’Azur.
