Few cities on the planet capture the imagination quite like Venezia does. As much renowned for its arts festivals including the Venice Biennale and the Venice Film Festival as its series of canals, there is so much to admire about this northeastern Italian city. For its September 2017 issue WSJ Magazine celebrates the storied city in an alluring editorial by Mario Sorrenti and George Cortina starring Hiandra Martinez. The Dominican beauty finds herself ensconced in magical world quite unlike anything she has ever witnessed. Hiandra wears a variety of looks throughout the fall story including a Maison Margiela coat (pictured), which rather perfectly encapsulates the artistic possibility of Venezia.
