Just another day in paradise… backyard bliss!… Hair and makeup station set up in my house, sunshine streaming into the lounge. A quick 2 mintue walk through my magical forest to Dolphins Beach, a vast white sanded expanse of ocean side desert.
We shot this little blog post with the stunning mermaid Kita, her beachy long, balayaged locks were a pleasure to style, (FYI I used Kevin Murphy’s Resort Spray & Motion Lotion which is my go to product for beach hair). She frolicked & wandered, the sand was like soft flour, and then she embraced the ocean.
I love how these Spell pieces were paired back with those Isla Collective basics – just the way my sisters intended… ‘always dress it down!’ Perfect beach attire.

Our latest Spell muse, elfin beauty Anja Konstantinvoa, finds herself in an intimate bohemian loft somewhere in downtown Nashville. Cloaked in our latest vintage inspired print and adorned in vintage jewels – we explore the quiet moments spent alone in a home you love, dreaming of a far-off bohemian wonderland.
Shot on location in Nashville, Tennessee, in the home real-life bohemian muse Leah Hoffman, who’s loft was the perfect backdrop for our August/September collection ‘Bohemian Royale’. I came across this totally babe’n Southern belle on instagram (here) when her stunning bohemian wedding photos went viral (view it here via The Lane). We were mesmerized by her style, her wardrobe, her loft, her life! (It’s so terribly, wonderfully easy to covet someones style via instagram isn’t it!!) A collaboration with this little darling was irresistible – so flick forward a few months and there we were, enveloped in her gorgeous apartment as mid-summer tornado’s passed over and around Nashville turning the skies and streets electric grey.
The shoot, even with the alarming weather and the city on Tornado alert, was a dreamy flurry of gorgeous creative souls. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to bring our vision to life from afar.
The collection revolves around our signature Spell kimonos, playsuits and playdresses made in a vintage inspired print, reminiscent of vintage fabrics we found once in a dusty market place in Pushkar, India. Throw in an embellished Spell slouchy/sweater set in a sports-luxe grey terry, our new Lost Highway trucker flannel, lush crochet backless mini and lush, over-sized knits and you have our latest trans-seasonal collection Bohemian Royale, available online now, and more dropping in coming weeks.
