Roberto Cavalli Takes Fashion to New Heights With BASE Jumping Photoshoot

By Hanssie on March 20th 2014

They don’t call it “high fashion” for nothing.

Put some good looking Italian models in thousands of dollars of designer clothes and have them jump off a cliff, all in a day’s work. Commissioned by Roberto Cavalli, famed BASE jumper/model Roberta Mancino and her crew of seriously attractive, stoic-faced models take a dive after photographer Noah Bahnson, looking pretty and falling thousands of feet all at the same time.

If you are unfamiliar with BASE jumping, it’s where people strap parachutes on themselves and jump off tall things, like buildings and cliffs. If I were to do that, I would be screaming my head off and probably crying at the same time…not looking glamorously cool like this:

Armed with a couple of GoPro cameras and a Canon strapped to his head, Bahnson took numerous dives to capture the different models as you can see in the video below.
