Fashion Editorial: Ola Rudnicka by Koto Bolofo for Harper’s Bazaar UK April 2016



WHERE THE SEA MEETS THE SKY seems like an appropriate title both for this editorial and the direction spring/summer trends are taking us in. Indeed, lighter colours and fabrics feel just right, whether it be soft pastel blues and pinks — take cues from Pantone’s colours for 2016 — or delicate silk and organza. With transparencies, less is more, for the ingénue look is preferable to an overly aggressive one. A shoot by the seaside adds a certain romance; there is a beautiful result in contrasting intricate Erdem and Dior pieces with the wooden boats and fisherman nets. 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12

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.
