Mario Testino guest editor for Vogue Spain

Mario Testino is the guest editor of the December issue of Vogue Spain. The renowned photographer whose image is, according to the man himself “a mix of fashion, elegance, humor, reality, beauty and energy” joined the team of Vogue España in this true celebration of the Spanish fiesta.

The December issue covers traditional Spanish imagery and a particular imagery of this country’s art of partying, from the long sleepless nights to that crazy party called Tomatina. Trendemz took a glimpse at this particular production, which brings us back to that wild tomato throwing festivity, and was stunned by the fabulous visual result of this fashion production. 

Higher+Higher were the people behind the artistic direction of this issue inspired on true icons from Spanish design, fashion and movies   but from a modern perspective.

Movida was the Spanish movement, which brought party to another level, combining the traditional and the modern in lovely promiscuous way. Glamour and excess, sexiness and sophistication marked those days, something Testino did take into due account for this issue,  featuring leading icons from that time and which have made it remarkably until today, such as Almodovar, Rossy de Palma or Alaska. This issued thus feature everything that is remarkably Spanish or Spanish-related. Hence the profusion of names such as Plácido Domingo, Baroness Thyssen, Manolo Blahnik, Carolina Herrera, Marisa Paredes and Manuel Benítez “El Cordobés”, just to name a few.

Kate Moss was the model chosen for the cover of thus issue. The very same actress can be seen also in a stunning production in the pages of this magazine with Spanish bullfighter José María Manzanares.
