Bella Hadid and Adut Akech are fronting the campaign for Missoni’s fall/winter 2019 collection.
The two models travelled to the surreal volcanic landscape of Cappadocia, Turkey for the photoshoot, which was helmed by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott under the creative direction of the Italian brand’s artistic director Angela Missoni and stylists Vanessa Reid and Mobolaji Dawodu.
“Geometric forms, sophisticated monochromatic hues, supernatural apparitions silhouetted against the terrain and intergalactic travellers,” a Missoni brand rep captioned a snap of Hadid and Akech on Instagram.
The low-angle shot shows the models posing in front of a rocky terrain with blue sky in the background while sporting colour blocked knitted garments and large, geometric earrings.
A single snap depicts Akech wearing a jumpsuit made from Missoni’s signature knitted fabric, while a group shot includes Hadid alongside male model Alton Mason.
And Akech appeared to be thrilled with the final result, as she shared a gushing post on Instagram alongside a series of images from the campaign.
“Excited for the new @missoni FW19 campaign shot by my sweethearts @mertalas @macpiggott in turkey,” the 19-year-old wrote. “@missbrunello (Angela Missoni) and your entire team thank you for having me and for an unforgettable trip to the beautiful city of Cappadocia Turkey I’ve never seen anything like it and I’ll never forget. I’m so lucky I got to shoot this campaign with some of my favourite people ever. Thank you to everyone that worked so hard on and offset you guys were the absolute dream team!”
