Together with Mario and Daria, our team set off to the historic town of Eze in France, whose exotic botanical gardens set the perfect backdrop for this stunning shoot. Balmy weather, a jaw-dropping view out onto the Mediterranean Sea, and a quiet medieval village combine into a truly blissful setting, a real hideaway. Where else is better for one of fashion’s greatest natural beauties to pose for Mario Testino himself? We were stunned by this hidden gem of the Cote d’Azur: from the luxurious hotel Chateau de la Chèvre d’Or where we stayed, to the vast variety of exotic plants at the Eze botanical gardens, which became the backdrop for the shoot. Daria’s bold accessories and ethnic-style outfits put together by Lucinda Chambers, fashion editor at large at UK Vogue, mixed perfectly with the plants’ luscious greens and unusual shapes. The result is a vibrant and fresh celebration of spring and youthfulness.
