Roberta-Mancino-High-Fashion.jpgLeave it to the Italians to take base jumping and turn it into a high fashion catwalk in the sky.

According to the description:

Roberta Mancino expresses her passion for fashion and her love of base jumping in this truly extraordinary "High Fashion" GoPro video starring Giovanni Silvestri, Andrey Karr, Luca Tondelli, and Maurizio Di Palma. Watch them jump from Italy's Monte Brento looking fresh and stylish in Roberto Cavalli high end clothing. If you're going to base-jump off a perfectly good cliff, you might as well look spectacular doing it.

If, like me, you just thought to yourself, "Who in the hell is Roberta Mancino?", here's your answer from Wikipedia: "Roberta Mancino is an Italian skydiver, BASE jumper, wingsuit flyer and international model." So, yeah. She's Italian. They can do anything. Fashionably.

Video is below the break.
