British supermodels and i-D 35th anniversary issue cover stars Kate Moss and Lara Stone have been revealed as the regal duo fronting Balenciaga's opulent but austere fall/winter 15 campaign. It's the first time the modelling megastars have appeared together in a campaign, but they bring an intimate drama to the cinematic scenes.

"I wanted the first image for the campaign to frame Kate and Lara in a mysterious conversation," creative director Alexander Wang says. The three new images, which i-D reveal exclusively, allow the story to unfold as Lara leans over a reclining Kate, their lips just inches away, and the pair stand tall, holding hands in the stunning embroidered cocoon-skirt dresses of the fall/winter 15 collection.

"For me, the fall collection began with the real women of Balenciaga — women who are multifaceted and multidimensional: strong and sensual yet also austere and mysterious," Alexander Wang adds. Kate and Lara appear in a slate-walled swimming pool in the shots by Steven Klein, art directed by Pascal Dangin, with styling by Panos Yiapanis, makeup by Val Garland and hair by Anthony Turner.
