We’re always hungry for a shoot. So when Sydney model Louise van der Vorst was visiting Byron recently, arranging an early morning collaboration-shoot with the doll-faced beauty was irresistible.
We spent the day before the shoot styling a few looks, pairing some of our fave pieces from our upcoming mid-year collection with some gorgeous vintage numbers. We shot the look book at stylist Leah's XXX family home. (And if you’re wondering if that crazy dreamscape wall paper it’s for real – it is! It’s the wall paper in one of her son’s bedrooms!)
Morning coffees, juices and pastries aplenty and a bunch of outfit changes later the shoot had come together just as we had dreamed. Louise was a dream to work with, and so different to any other model we’ve worked with. We were all mesmerised by her huge cat eyes (we couldn’t believe it when the cat jumped up on the bed with her!) – and her stoic, doll-faced beauty was perfect for this dreamy morning-lit story.
