The desert has a special light to it, it bounces off every surface, and skims along the flat yellow-white sand, creating shadows that illuminate rather than darken and makes skin glow iridescent and alive. Our mid-year collection is a tapestry of different textures and prints, embellishments and tassels and the desert light brings it all to life.
For years Spelly and I have dreamed of shooting a quintessential Americana roadtrip’n look book somewhere in the majestically illuminated American desert. There were a few little hurdles though, one of the biggest being that we live 10,000km away in Australia. But the thing about little dreams, is they have a way of manifesting despite road blocks, great distances and any manner of odds stacked against you. It was no surprise then that another one of our dreams would come to fruition at the same time… shooting with Miss Bambi.
When glimpses of this shoot started to form in my mind I couldn’t think of anyone better to help us capture these moments, in all their desert-light-illuminated glory than photographer Zoey Grossman, stylist Ashley Glorioso and our all time fave Aussie model Bambi Northwood Blyth. Zoey, Ash and Bambi literally took our dreams and carved them, in the blink of an eye, into a sculpture of all that we adore about the iconic American road trip.
We’re so excited to bring you this shoot because it represents so much of what we love and so much of what we dream.
