One year ago we asked ourselves, ‘what would our muse wear if she woke up in New York City?’ …It’s a year on, and this time she wakes in the city of lights…
Once a year we like to shake the sand from our toes and wash the salt from our hair and rekindle our love for the city. Last February it was Folk Town in NYC and For Blue Skies we journeyed to the City of Lights – Paris, France.
Because… it’s not all tropical paradises and sunlit desert-scapes and exotic, far-off lands… It’s bustling streets full of culture and jaw dropping architecture, and walking old streets for hours like you’re in a movie… we all love a holiday – but sometimes it’s just us, on our own in a big, beautiful city. Blue Skies is that Paris trip you did when you were 22, or that Paris trip you’ll take when the kids grow up… which ever Paris trip it is, it’s the journey you take with an empty suitcase ready to be filled with the most beautiful fashion treasures, old and new.
Cut to our styling closet the night before the shoot (aka our romantic Parisian apartment, the set and abode for the crew’s week in Paris) …Sarah Ellen passing around Gucci belts and Acne boots, our stylist Molly King, running her fingers across felt berets and the cool touch of golden sequins, photographer Sybil Steele on the bed in her Ellery velvet jacket (which Molly scooped up for the shoot of course) – this is a dress-up lovers collection.
The Blue Skies floral print whispers echos of the Orient, but with the addition of elegant lace pieces and gold sequins make me think of a dark little vintage store, lost somewhere in the cobbled streets of Paris. We knew that we had to shoot this collection in a city where fashion is god and eclectic wardrobes are every day life…
