The breathtaking necklace, which forms a classic silhouette of exceptional jewels hand-set into a graduating radiant display as the gems opulently cascade.
Guest edited by Mr Testino, the world’s most influential fashion and portrait photographer, the issue features incredible photographs of iconic landscapes and notable Australian faces captured during Testino’s visit to Sydney in January 2016.
Of his time in Australia, Testino said: “Australia, and specifically Sydney (where I spent much of my time on this trip), really moved me in many ways. I travel almost constantly for my work and have done so for pretty much my entire career. It’s rare that I stay in a place longer than four or five days before I’m back on a plane and going to the next job. This time, however, I ended up changing my entire plans to stay in Sydney longer than I was meant to. I can’t remember the last time that happened.”
Emerald Group Investments CEO James Kennedy said: “Emerald Group Investments were delighted to partner with Vogue to bring Mario Testino to Australia. As one of Australia’s fast growing luxury groups, we are passionate about excellence and creativity and were thrilled to support Mario and Vogue with this special issue.”
