We are proud to present ~ in motion ~ our newest S.E by Sant Elia Campaign, honouring the humility of love and fluidity of movement. Against all odds and amidst COVID-19 lockdown, this campaign was captured by Jessica Ruscoe in Paris in late 2020. 

We shone a spotlight on our Perla bodice, perfect for the iridescent bride. Featured with our Rimini Skirt, this compliments the natural curvature of the female form. 

Our Juliette Robe was a key element of this campaign as she pays homage to the naturality and simplicity of the divine. Juliette’s delicate hand pearl beaded cuffs bring a touch of modernity to the ethereal style. 

We also took the opportunity to showcase our signature Fiore bodice, embellished with italian lace and 3D florals with her matching detachable sleeves. We added a split to our Stefania skirt to illuminate this look with her sheer and dramatic effect. 

We asked Jessica Ruscoe, photographer and creative director, to give us an insight into her inspiration for the shoot. 

“The story I wanted to create with this shoot was one of movement and romance, I wanted the set and the feel of the images to encapsulate a dreamscape, like a portal to another world.” 

“We used meters and meters of French silk and linen to create the billowing curtains that framed a number of film photographs from my travels to Milos, Greece.” 

“I adored shooting the S.E by Sant Elia pieces in this shoot, their natural movement and silhouette was perfect for the vision we captured on the day”.

Featuring key pieces from our latest collection ~ in motion ~ is our ode to contemporary romance and what it means to love and be loved in 2021. To explore and shop the edit, click here
