Vivienne Westwood Red Label – AW 2014

Here’s a small selection of pictures from the Vivienne Westwood Red Label show in Paris for Autumn-Winter 2014. The mood was very retro with tight curls and red lips, lovely checkered jackets and long coats with pearls, hats and gloves. Gloriously chic!

This is a series of pictures I took last summer in Shoreditch, East London. The idea was to explore the contrast of beautiful and sexy fashion, shot against a derelict, urban background.The outfits were provided by Ohran, whose shop is set on Hoxton’s Pitfield Street.

Looking back on SS14 Fashion Week

It’s already been a couple of months since last Fashion Week – time really runs away – and I thought I’d post a few pictures of my work from SS14. These are actually all from Paris FW where I was assisting Vogue photographer James Cochrane backstage at the shows. His work is truly amazing which makes him such an interesting person to follow and learn from. Without further ado, here are my favourite shots from Carven, Guy Laroche, Isabelle Marant, Elie Saab, Christian Wijnants, Junko Shimada and Yohji Yamamoto.

Antonio Berardi – Autumn/Winter 2013

 

 

Antonio Berardi’s show for A/W 2013 was probably my favourite out of all London Fashion Week shows. This actually makes sense as Berardi is one of my favourite designers, but I particularly enjoyed his collection this season. The clean-cut garments, the rich fabrics and the beautiful colour palette of dark greens and blues were truly amazing. There was a high sense of sophistication combined with edginess and cool. The beauty fitted this spirit perfectly: long sleek manes pulled to the back, pristine complexions and deep red glossy lips completed wardrobe, giving the show a very polished look.

Peter Pilotto – Autumn/Winter 2013

Peter Pilotto’s A/W 2013 show was held at the Tanks at Tate Modern – a truly great venue, with the appropriate edge and a certain roughness that suited well the collection in my sense. With a strong and almost fierce sense of style, the Pilotto woman was unapologetically beautiful this season. The wardrobe featured plenty of the designers’ signature geometrical prints, as well as bold shapes and laser-precise cuts. On the beauty side, the highlight were glossy eyelids matched by a gleaming face, while hair was pulled back in a wet-look ponytail.

PPQ – Autumn/Winter 2013

The PPQ collection for Autumn-Winter 2013 was very pretty and feminine with a playful twist. On the beauty side, hair was put up in beehive-like buns adorned by big black satin bows. Make-up involved natural mat skin and defined black eye-liner, keeping the tone simple yet sophisticated. The wardrobe featured many bright ‘vitamined’ pieces ranging from yellow, orange, green and pink to colourful prints.

Felder Felder – Autumn/Winter 2013

In February I had the amazing opportunity to assist fashion photographer James Cochrane backstage at London Fashion Week, for a few Autumn-Winter 2013 shows. The first one we went to on Friday was Felder Felder. Hair and make-up was kept simple, with long tousled manes and bright red lips, a lovely combination. The collection itself was very feminine and sophisticated – yet perfectly wearable – with a few colourful items and a special mention for the coats and dresses – utterly beautiful.

L’Atelier de Camille launches Autumn/Winter collection

L’Atelier de Camille just launched its second collection for the Autumn/Winter season. A wonderful sequel to the Spring/Summer opening collection, this second outing seems even more elaborate and matured than the first one. Of course, this may come from a slightly biased point of view, as Camille, the talented designer at the helm of the Atelier, is no other than my sister.

However, I had the opportunity to see and get a feel of the whole assortment first-hand as Camille asked me to shoot her second collection. Working together on this photo shoot was definitely an amazing experience. Knowing each other so well made things so much easier and quicker. No hesitation, no doubts, everything went smoothly and efficiently. Efficiently it had to be, as we shot 22 outfits in less than a day. That was a challenge I must say, but one that I would love to take up again next season!

Now ladies, judging by the  results of the first week’s sales, it won’t be long before the collection is completely swiped off the online boutique… so I would’t waste a minute to get my hands on that lovely dress, this cute jacket, the poppy red top – oh and that CAPE – if I were you.


Feminine, Fresh & So Cute!

…Is how I would describe this new fashion Label:  I am talking of L’ATELIER de Camille “bien sûr”, a lovely new brand that just launched its first collection last Thursday.

Just picture this:  in the heart of Paris’ 6th arrondissement – so chic Madame! – was held the first-ever private sale in the young creator’s own apartment. Camille‘s clothes are just every girl’s dream: refreshingly simple in cut and style, precious and elegant in the fabrics and details ; add to that a twist of the Parisian charm and a hint of cheekiness – there you go, L’ATELIER de Camille is born, congratulations!

Needless to say, the night was a huge success and sales went quicker that you can say it. But enough said, I’m leaving you with a few pictures, they’ll speak better for themselves.
