Spain is the central focus of this poolside editorial shot by Riccardo Ulpts for C-Heads magazine that captures the sultry heat of the European nation along with model Daphne's beauty. The shoot features Daphne posing along white pools filled with aquamarine waters decked out in bodycon and one piece bathing suits as a nod to previous fashions returning.

The illustrations capture the quintessential Spanish holiday with the blue skies, terra cotta villages and luscious green palm trees framing Daphne as she hangs out by the pool. The shoot captures a candied voyeurism perspective that the viewer holds as they observe Daphne enjoying her own little piece of tropical oasis in plunging and wrapped swimming suits.

The editorial captures the beauty of the location while also nodding to the return of retro swimming fashions from the 90s era.
