The coral stone pillars and stairways, the glistening sea in the background, the never-ending rows of topiaries and greenery- if we didn't know any better, we'd say that Oscar De La Renta's Spring 2015 campaign was shot within Miami's very own Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. And if we really didn't know any better, we'd say that the campaign looks like it could be ripped out of a quinceñera's photo album, albeit a very chic one's. See the full gallery after the jump.
Oscar PR Girl posted on Instagram that the campaign was indeed shot in Miami by Steve Hiett, and stars Daria Strokous and Sasha Luss frolicking around the estate John Deering built as his vacation home in the early 20th century.
We mean, the location perfectly suits the collection, which is defined by pastels, florals, eyelet, lace, and the lady-like forms that the late designer is so known for. It's also suiting that Miami is so close to Oscar's native country, the Dominican Republic. The campaign is beautiful, without a doubt, but we lament that you'll never look at a wedding or coming-of-age photoshoot at Vizcaya the same way again.
