Editorial: Andreea Diaconu by Miguel Reveriego for Vogue Spain March 2017
Wednesday 22nd February, 2017
SPAIN BEGUILES FASHION SEASON AFTER SEASON. It evokes images of toreadores in their embellished gilded jackets; flamenco dancers moving to the sound of a guitar in long skirts with endless layers of polka-dot ruffles; and copla singers standing on stage in back lace shawls with a rose behind their ears. Fashion designers and consumers alike look to Spain for its sunny demeanor and mystique, for a flower in our hair or a delicate black lace dress on a sunny day can go a long way. Cristóbal Balenciaga was a Spanish visionary whose legacy remains today, while Oscar de la Renta’s was continuously inspired in the country’s vibrancy. It’s why Vogue Spain’s editorial holds so much appeal. There are Isabel Marant mini dresses, Oscar de la Renta two-piece suits, and the most fabulous hats and large earrings, modelled by Andreea Diaconu amongst whitewashed buildings and tiled courtyards. The Spanish fantasy is alive and well. — Victoria.

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
