About the image

This fashion editorial was shot in an old farm in Milan, Italy. My assistant discovered this location while we were on our way to pick up another car for a project. My van was not going to not have enough room so I rented a small car. On the way Emiliano mentioned there was an old roof "Over there". So we got off of the main road onto a side street and within 5 minutes we were walking on the property. We later got permission to shoot anytime we wanted and we have shot many projects there. Go here to look at the BTS video.

Problems:

Circles under eyes.
