In the sum­mer of 1985 Vogue trav­elled to Barcelona to brave the crowds and pro­duce a cover that cel­e­brated all things party sea­son.

VOGUE Australia - - VOGUE VAULT -

Tis the sea­son for glitzy dresses, short hem­lines and run­ning wild in the streets – a sen­ti­ment shared by the Vogue team in De­cem­ber of 1985, who turned to Barcelona to frame their end-of-year sum­mer is­sue. Pho­tog­ra­pher Monty Coles snapped Aus­tralian de­signs along­side fash­ion ed­i­tor Ju­dith Cook in a shoot in­spired by the glam­our of sum­mer in the city. From strolling one of the city’s fa­mous wide boule­vards to ad­mir­ing art at the Pi­casso Mu­seum, the shoot was a cel­e­bra­tion of all things cul­ture, warm-weather dress­ing and travel. Stay­ing on theme for the cover, art ed­i­tor Christina Zim­pel tried her hand at col­lage – com­plete with the Sagrada Família and a nod to Christ­mas. It re­mains as re­lat­able as ever: we can still imag­ine our­selves strolling La Ram­bla in a scrunchie and sum­mer dress. Shine on, Barcelona!
