The style bible’s use of Ireland as a location will be seen as a major shot in the arm to the country’s profile in international tourism and fashion circles.
Entitled ‘Wild Irish Rose’, it features Daria Werbowy, the Polish-born Ukranian model who lives part of the year in West Cork.
Werbowy joins with Girls actor Adam Driver for the piece as they walk in the footsteps of that paragon of unrequited love, WB Yeats and Maud Gonne.
Fashion editor on the shoot was the eponymous Grace Coddington who, it’s said, was bewitched by Ireland when she visited Werbowy at her Irish home earlier this year.
Yeats is quoted wildly in the piece which was shot in undisclosed locations in the south of the country and includes lots of cable-knits, wood-tweed, and boxy cashmere coats.
