When I think of Rip Curl I think of the icey Autumn winds of Torquay, Victoria – and how we used to go down there for the Rip Curl Pro at Easter time. Your hair would give your face whiplash in the wind, and we’d perv at all the hot surfers and sneak into the Offshore Music Festival with fake wrist bands. Ahh the memories… the tragic, wonderful, under-age memories!
Recently Rip Curl Europe contacted us, asking us to send a package for a shoot they were doing in Spain… Of course we shipped off our fave pieces, lots of colour and swirling lilacs, turquoise and amimal prints.
But where there’s photo shoots there’s spontaneity – Alex told me that after the shoot in Hossegor they’d bumped into photographer Liora Basse of Paralléle Lab Blog who attends the famous school “Les Gobelins” in Paris, and so Rip Curl lent her our package. These are Liora’s photos above – rocking out our Floral Tribe Kimono and a few other Spell pieces. I love her sketchy, raw style of photography.
photographed: White Bull Ring, Floral Tribe Kimono, Turquoise Goddess Necklace (as headband), Bedouin Tribe Ring, Castaway Ring, One hot vintage Tee (not ours).
