These shots were taken right after Waking up in Paris on our very last morning in our temporary apartment in the 16th arrondissement that was just too beautiful to not use it as a background for one of my ‘editorial’ try outs.
And what better subject than my Fashion Week partner Anna and her neverending story of hair?
As some of your might have noticed, I am concentrating more on photography and a bit less on ‘me’ around here. For the ones that come here to see what I am wearing, don’t worry, I will keep posting images of what I wear on a regular basis (hopefully in a more creative way than just snaps on the go). It is just that I feel like it is time to develop what I am really truly passionate about and that is photography.
I am still kind of a rookie when it comes to creating imaginary stories – these shots are all taken without any proper lighting (just natural light) – but I thought it would be fun to take you on my photography journey of trial and error (isn’t that the best way to learn?).
Thank you friends of TravelBird for letting us stay in your utterly gorgeous private home.
Ever since the launch of Dutch Vogue back in March, I am a loyal buyer. Subscriptions are not my cup of tea, but I am a faithful white cover collector. I have to admit I do not read it cover to cover – I am skipping most of the interviews unless they are with people I already found interesting – but I definitely have my favorite spread each and every issue.
This time (November issue), it is one of the spreads from the ‘Oneindig Schier’ editorial about the new silhouette, starring Mirte Maas, styled by Dimphy den Otter and photographed by Annemarieke van Drimmelen.
Jessica Hart looks a-ma-zing in this Maison Scotch campaign. Minus some of the super-boho items, this is what I want to look like all spring/summer. I love the first outfit – have to have those knee patched jeans! – and that leather jacket in the third look is the bomb. Let alone the outfit with the cut off jeans shorts, the linked belt and crispy white shirt, finished off with some subtle gold jewelry. Very cool.
We all know that it’s fall that is waiting for us right around the corner. Only until a couple of days ago I was kinda still waiting for summer and whenever someone would bring up the word fall, I was like ‘wtf are you talking about, summer hasn’t even been here yet’. But after seeing this editorial in Cover Denmark (styled by Emelie Johansson? < kind of having a style crush on her work) I think I’m ready. Fall, bring it on!
