Away from any overly-lavish settings, Haute Couture pieces can look strangely and surprisingly wearable. That’s one of the takeaways from Benjamin Kanarek’s latest white-walled editorial for Elle Vietnam, in which Canadian covergirl Dauphine McKee wears an array of impressively detailed outfits and more than one pair of sneakers.

Moving through a spectrum of colours and styles, Kanarek’s shoot is like a visually stunning catalogue of the spring 2014 couture season’s key pieces. From Elie Saab’s billow of soft blue chiffon to Chanel’s sequin-covered trainers and feathers, Gaultier’s fuchsia butterfly lace to Vauthier’s vampish oxblood bralet, there’s no outfit that fails to leave an impression.

Check out the full shoot and credits at the gallery, and you can also watch a behind-the-scenes video at Benjamin Kanarek’s blog.
