Roman luxury house Valentino has linked with Vanessa Beecroft — the brains behind Kanye West’s apocalyptic YEEZY presentations — for its latest FW16 campaign. Much like Beecroft’s work on the YEEZY project, the video features a menacing soundtrack and a lineup of both street and agency-cast models arranged in a strict military formation.

Of course, the clothing is a lot more palatable to mainstream tastes than YEEZY’s disheveled urban gear, as Beecroft’s mini-army is dressed in smart trench coats and turtlenecks, accessorized with stud-adorned leather pouches and footwear.

Check out the video above and for more fashion news take a look at Maison Margiela’s latest batch of multicolored luxe sneakers.
