Shades of Gatsby: The styles of Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2014

In some cases, colour can be merely a distraction. Classic Driver brings you the faces and scenes of Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2014 in a high-contrast, monochromatic gallery...

The light given off by Lake Como in the early summer is unique; the play of sun and shadow between mountain and lake has provided artistic vision to countless Italian artists, photographers and directors – indeed, Luchino Visconti spent his summers in Cernobbio. Classic Driver's Creative Director Jan Baedeker has now followed suit, and shares his monochromatic impressions of Villa d'Este 2014 in our large gallery.
