BEHIND THE SEAMS: SPRING 2017 PHOTOSHOOT
Posted on 18 September 2016
In July, we drove out to Connecticut to shoot the Spring 2017 collection. You could say we were driving a clown car. We transported the makeup artist, the photographer, the model, the model's sister, our two interns and ourselves. Yes, everyone had seat belts!
We arrived to Candlewood Lake, greeted by our hosts with a refreshing Aperol spritz and an amazing, peaceful view. We decided to give ourselves a tour of the property. The gardens were zen and lush, full of vines and colorful flowers. We were most struck by the views of the rolling green hills and the tranquil lake. We felt like we could of been in Italy!
We changed into our tanning-friendly outfits, lathered on the sunscreen and shot the collection on a gorgeous dock on a sunny summer day! Wine and bowls of fruit accompanied us.
Our French model Charlotte started by going into hair and makeup. For the main shots, we wanted to highlight her natural beauty by putting her hair in a low bun and light makeup. We used a gold reflector to give her a glowing look. She looked beautiful!
Midway through, our hosts prepared a traditional Chinese lunch, made from scratch, for us on the second floor outdoor patio. Everyone was raving about the food. It was truly an experience! (Sorry for the silly Snapchat picture!).
This was our best shoot to date! Here are some more behind the "seams" images, taken from our phones.
We finished the day by taking a boat ride into the sunset. We had a lot of fun and we think the collection reflects that! Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
