Valencian-born and rocking a “plastic heart”, we chose to catch up with a leading-edge millennial, who’s also a digital talent part of the contemporary wave of “model-influencers.” Didi De Diego, aged 26, has fronted worldwide editorial campaigns, partnering up with the likes of labels such as JW Anderson and Loewe. Driven by a fervent spirit and thriving for pictorial conceptualisation in conjunction with experimental subtlety, we asked him a few questions to get to know him a little better.

Hey there! How are you doing? Could you introduce yourself briefly?

Hello! I’m Didi De Diego and I’m 26 years old. I was born in Spain, just off the Mediterranean coastline. On a general note, the idea of “fine aesthetics” represent a huge fragment of both myself and my family, reason why my life is symbolised by an imperceptible balance between harmony juxtaposed with chaos.

What do you do for a living?

I’m a plastic artist specialised in sculpture, social media content creator, digital entrepreneur and a quotidian “dreamer.”

What has led you to pursue a career in the creative industry, particularly looking at the sphere of fashion?

I started modelling when I was quite young. Though, that quickly made me realise it wasn’t for me. I’m an avid fashion devotee, but I’m always observing details from an artistic perspective. In my opinion, I find that fashion can sometimes be overly futile and irrational. That reason was the crucial catalyst that made me to start sharing my fashion belief though Instagram, trying to mix up my core passions and exploring the idea of beauty blended with aesthetics. In addition, a few months back I signed a contract with @UNOModels, an inspiring yet eclectic agency of young people who are passionate about their job as much as I am.

Who and what inspires you the most?

Good question, ha-ha! If I were to choose a few, I believe I’d go for: Italy, Pitita Ridruejo, Kate moss, Johnny Depp, Paolo Sorrentino and the 1920’s.

 

How would you describe your style?

I constantly opt for refined quality, simplicity, and resilient textures. Avoid vacant trends: instead, try to create your own! Do not cease to search for comfort and don’t forget to be yourself while finding the perfect attire.
