Fashion | Giovanna Battaglia is the new face of Eddie Borgo’s Spring 2011 collection

The inimitable Giovanna Battaglia is the newest face of Eddie Borgo. The American accessories designer, a favourite of celebrities like Rihanna and Alexa Chung, has tapped the fashion director of Vogue Gioiello & Vogue Pelle as the face of his Spring 2011 collection.

The collection was inspired by fetish iconography including padlocks, corsets and bondage cuffs but uses a lighter, more artistic touch.

“Each piece is so amazingly done,” says former Dolce & Gabbana model Battaglia. “You don’t even think about the dark side of it.”

Battaglia finds herself in good company too—former Eddie Borgo models include Vanessa Traina, Lauren Santo Domingo and ELLE style director Kate Lanphear.

I am a big fan of Battaglia—there is something so stylishly effortless and elegant yet youthful and fun about her sartorial choices—and I think she looks absolutely amazing in these images.

What do you think of Eddie Borgo’s choice?
