In a special Valentino Haute Couture fashion editorial captured by Benjamin Kanarek, Irina Nikolaeva brings the spirit of the Roman Colosseum to the streets of Paris for Harper’s Bazaar China.
In her gladiatoresque attire, Irina exemplifies the freshness of the Valentino Haute Couture Collection that is filled with historic symbolism and the Roman heritage perpetuated by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, since they took the reins at Valentino seven years ago.
