Louis CXIV: Series of 23 portraits
It’s a crazy, ambitious, prestigious, and obviously French project, which must make our culture and our heritage shine internationally.
How would be the future imagined by Louis XIV and his court?
We chose King Louis XIV and his court, as part of this series of photographs. A unique series to seize the aura and prestige of the Great Century era.
A series obviously offset in the straight line of the series « Super-Flamands – 2013 » which has become mythical, and in the spirit of « Secret Eden – 2016 », each setting serving as a frame for a unique story in period costumes.
Maria Theresa of Spain, Cardinal Mazarin, the Marquise de Montespan, Mademoiselle de Fontanges, Louise de Lavalliere, Marie Mancini, Henriet of England. Louise Bourgoin, Pierre Richard, Mathieu Chédid, Aurélie Dupont, Amira Casar, Pauline Lefèvre, Caterina Murano, incarnate Louis XIV court’s.
A team of 65 people worked on the implementation of this series of 20 portraits.
10 costumers, under Jackie Tadeoni’s direction, created exceptional costumes.
Thierry Fortin and his team have put all their talent to revisit existing period costumes.
A team of six hairdressers working under Charlotte Arguillère’s direction, invented and created hairstyles, especially designed for this series.
Alain Roussel and his assistants have imagined and designed truly surprising objects and accessories.
