    The Agnelli's estate for more than eight generations is needless to say a beautiful Italian baroque villa or “Hunting lodge”. After Marella married Gianni Agnelli, she had to restore part of the house after a bombing during Second World War and ever since then, the ‘decorator’ in her, couldn’t stop; becoming this, one her passions for life and even getting winning an award as a textile designer. The Villa is the northern Italian city of Turin and with its magnificent views of the French Alps and acres and acres of constant renovating and growing famous gardens, it wasn’t difficult for Marella who also came from an aristocratic family in Italy but much more conservative as you can expect.

    ________________________________
    Horst P. Horst (born Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann) was one of the towering figures of 20th-century fashion photography. Best known for his work with Vogue—who called him “photography’s alchemist”—Horst rose to prominence in Paris in the interwar years, publishing his first work with the magazine in 1931. In the decades that followed, Horst’s experimentations with radical composition, nudity, double exposures, and other avant-garde techniques would produce some of the most iconic fashion images ever, like Mainbocher Corset and Lisa with Harp (both 1939). As The New York Times once described, “Horst tamed the avant-garde to serve fashion.” Though associated most closely with fashion photography, Horst captured portraits of many of the 20th century’s brightest luminaries, dabbling with influences as far-ranging as Surrealism and Romanticism. “I like taking photographs because I like life,” he once said. “And I love photographing people best of all because most of all I love humanity.

Horst P. Horst

Germany Born in: 1906

On the 14th of August 1906, in Weißenfels-an-der-Saale in Germany, a legend was born. Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann, known as Horst P. Horst, is considered a master in his field. He died on the 19th of November 1999 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. 

After studying art at Kunstgewerbeschule (Hambourg), Horst moved to Paris in 1930 to train with Le Corbusier. Often spending time with bourgeois circles, he met George Hoyningen-Huene, the director of Vogue France studios. Encouraged by him, Horst threw himself into photography and published his first pictures with the French fashion magazine. In 1937 he left Paris for New York, where he met Coco Chanel. Over thirty years of collaboration and several dozen world-famous photographs ensued. During this period, he was admired and supported by important members of the fashion world such as Diana Vreeland. Following the closure of Vogue studios in 1951, he devoted himself to his own studio and produced numerous photos of interiors, landscapes, still lifes and nudes.

Nicknamed the photographer of elegance, Horst is best known for his photographs of glamorous and sophisticated women. He would prepare his shots meticulously, combining dramatic lighting, attention to detail and theatrical poses. His work is largely influenced by Greek sculpture, for which he had enormous admiration. “He photographed women as goddesses: inaccessible and calm Olympians". His photos are part of a Surrealist and Neoclassical trend.

Adopted by the fashion world, Horst began exhibiting his work in major art galleries from 1932 until the end of his career. His works have been assembled and published in numerous books: Horst, His Work, Horst: Photographer of Style, etc. In 1989 he received the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 1996, the Master of Photography Award from the International Center of Photography (New York).

His works have been exhibited at the Fortuny Palace in Venice (1989), the Louvre in Paris (1991), the Museum Ludwig Cologne (1992), the National Portrait Gallery (2001) and at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London (2007).
