We just spent a fabulous and intense two days shooting two new editorials and fashion films with a great team down in lovely Berry. Day 1 had us venturing through an intriguing ornament and toy-filled house as the setting for our doll-like shoot with EMG model Angelique. Photographer Rodney Ye captured her frolicking with teddy bears and reading books to herself while filmmaker Costa Vakas took her performance to the next level, playing up her childlike actions. Makeup by Chereine Waddell transformed our model, along with a variety of wig stylings by James Nash. Absorb creative director Chiara Bianchino put together a bunch of outfits playing on the idea of dress ups, with garments from Elliot Ward-Fear, Christopher Esber, Emma Mulholland, Lovers and Collaborators, An Ode to Noone, Subfusco, Ginger and Smart, Gorman…the list goes on!
Then day 2 our knits and shirting story had us getting up at dawn to catch the sunrise, in the hilly fields with a pack of llamas! So very cute. We had a pretty but chilly morning driving around and stopping at locations as we saw them, shooting, and moving on. Stopping for breakfast halfway through recharged our ravenous bodies and we got some lovely shots of Angelique in Sabatini knits, Pol Design, Lulu Rouge booties and the amazing knitwear by recent graduate Jessica O’Connor, whose label Outpost will be debuting a capsule collection in the very near future. Keep an eye out, her stuff is so lovely!
