vogue espana may 2014 is a gift from a couple of my friends who have recently visited barcelona. i was happy to share my knowledge with them and i understood that they loved the city as well as their stay at acta mimic!
this being said, let’s see what the spanish vogue has for us this month.
* an article on how the international press dealt with the suicide of designer l’wren scott.
* the selection of products on show has a strong summer vibe: bright colours, bikinis and other seaside paraphernalia. let’s not forget it: spain does have amazing beaches!
* an article dedicated to the first collaboration of & other stories with a designer: vika gazinskaya. i like the resulting collection!
* a shout-out to female online entrepreneurs. first is theline.com by model vanessa traina and morgan wendelborn – clean, modern separates. the second is cavan.com by cavan mahony and the third is couturelab.com by carmen busquets.
* an article on the new muse of the right wing: valencian knock-out cristina segui, a former translator/graphic designer/fashion blogger. interesting!
* newly divorced cover girl adriana lima models in a double feature: pastel pink and sporty, both on the beach.
* watch out for this belarusian model: victoria’s secret angel maryna linchuk. she’s exceptional!
* starchitect frank gehry decided to spend his 85th birthday in bilbao. he flew in with his family and celebrated with his friend, the director of the guggenheim museum. they met and became friends during the building of the now legendary structure.
gehry is currently working on several projects among which the new guggenheim in abu dahbi and the renovation of london’s battersea.
* a feature on the double house of couple cindy crawford and randy gerber and george clooney. the name of the estate is casamigos. and, surprise!, it is also the name of a brand that the aforementioned own together…
after going through the whole magazine, i have to say that i am disappointed. like most magazines out there, vogue espana uses 99% of its pages in order to push one product after another. it’s too much! that’s why i prefer vogue uk: they generate content and don’t only publish hidden agenda articles…
find the magazine at the newsstands around the world!
