FASHION: INEZ & VINOODH’S ‘SECRET GARDEN – VERSAILLES’



For decades, photographers and real-life partners, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, have created inspired and iconic imagery in the realm of fashion photography.

Working together since 1986, the award-winning Dutch partnership has built a peerless archive of work that is consistently setting new standards. With their prominent advertising campaigns, visionary editorial assignments, iconic Hollywood portraiture and groundbreaking films the pair have anticipated, articulated and defined every creative shift in fashion over the past three decades.

For their latest project for luxury fashion house, DIOR the pair directed a short film in La Galeries Des Glaces at Château de Versaille and were given free reign of the spectacular castle, a privilege that’s historically been reserved for the likes of Louis XV.

Featuring Daria Strokus, Melissa Stasiuk and Xiao Wen Ju, ‘Secret Garden – Versailles’ is a sight to behold.

The film has been viewed over 15 million times, proving once more what massive influence Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin create. Watch it for yourself here.
