Ilaria Orsini conceived and created Autoritratto during lockdown as a special project to present the Marsèll FW20 collection.
The Marsèll FW20 collection has been designed to achieve essential perfection. In this collection, Marsèll concentrates on the form of the shoe and develops its ideas with new objects. By unflinchingly pushing the boundaries of its products, the brand takes a clear stance against the poor form inherent to the fashion system. Materials follow form, the undisputed protagonist of this season. This strong aesthetic goes hand-in-hand with constant research, which allows Marsèll to create striking yet lightweight shapes and soles. The brand’s natural character and attitude have always embraced direct dialogue with a solid and confident persona that has no need of genres. Marsèll gave photographer Ilaria Orsini free creative reign to tell the story behind the collection.
Autoritratto is a photo and video project that was developed from forced domestic observation. Ilaria shot pieces from the FW20 collection using her own body, in a personal and dreamlike journey inside her home. With the help of stylist Francesca Cisani and herself as the only model, the result is an intimate and poetic journey of self-investigation.
Italian photographer. Ilaria Orsini’s nuanced and offbeat approach to fashion photography hails a new breed of photographers elegantly using angles, geometric forms and simple details to achieve striking results. Her spontaneity often leads to the fusion of chance elements in her work, creating remarkable combinations: a traffic cone on a NY street, or a model walking in front of the camera of off set. This characterises Ilaria’s approach to photography; a combination of elements from the street, the studio and different interiors, a trait recognisable in her first shoots for Double Magazine, Italian Vogue, Another Magazine, and others. Ilaria studied Visual Communication and has a Master’s in photography. She moved to Paris after graduating and currently lives between London and Milan.
