Greg Kadel’s Stylish Neighbor Lost in Suburbia Patricia van der Vliet for Vogue Spain.
Posted Sep 22, 2011
Leave it to Greg Kadel to bring one of my vintage “Fashion Fantasies” to life for the October Issue of Vogue Spain. With the help of some of Fall’s most fabulous prints from Celine, Balenciaga, Givenchy & more – Patricia van der Vliet takes on the role of super-stylish 70’s housewife. With all the mystery and style of a woman with too much time and endless means, I see Greg Kadel’s tragic heroine as the tortured “Lady in Waiting” as seen through the eyes of 7 year old girl absorbing every decadent detail. Against the backdrop of suburban chaos, this Fashion Mirage appears out of the mundane madness, offering up a world filled with color/complexity. A ever seductive picture that would forever live inside this girl, shaping her every thought about beauty and womanhood.
