A Delightful Amusement Lookbook Spring/Summer 2014



A lovely Lookbook for Bear Cat shot around a party carnival theme. Our model Robyn Davie from maverick agency was our Gal for the day. With the sun high in the sky and summer solstice beaming in the air, we took the day to shoot this little “delightful amusement” lookbook. Quirky vibes and thoughts of cotton candy and ice-cream on our minds. Click here to see a quick clip.

Orla Kiely Spring 2015 ‘Every Gal’s Dream Closet ‘



Cant believe how adorable the Spring/Summer 2015 Orla Kiely Collection is. The ultimate flower power hippie child. “Kiely specializes in pretty clothing with a quirky vibe and commercial appeal. The palette was floral-inspired: There were dresses and skirts in mismatched, oversize daisy prints in cornflower blue and rose. It was all easy, but far from sloppy. Loose, flowing trousers and jackets in daisy yellow jacquard worked well, as did the fluoro pink pieces. Kiely has been making home wares and accessories for 15 years, and her giant appliquéd flower bags and Hepburn-esque shoes really stood out.”~Afsun Qureshi/style.com Check out some of the Kiely pieces below. You’ll absolutely love as much as we do. Loud, vibrant prints. Each print tells a story. Blooming with pastels and thoughts of spring.

Jessie Rabideau for Nightmare Daydream



We shot Jessie Rabideau for Nightmare Daydream Collection fall 2013 in our studio, using a baby blue back drop. All clothing for fall 2013 were mostly in blacks, navy and a hint of white for peter pan collars and  yokes. Very classic vintage inspired with an edge. This was the same day we shot Amy (A Fashion Nerd) on Caroll Street. More photos to come soon.

Vintage Wonderland



Had the pleasure of shooting Phoebe from Willow Models at a Zsofia Mezey’s humble abode. She had the perfect little 1940’s apartment I absolutely adore. The mahogany dark wood floors with beautiful windows throughout, with white walls and large comfy pillow cases decorated with modern mid century furniture with a splash of Hollywood Regency and velvet tufted couches.  It’s always a pleasure to shoot at her little apartment in Koreatown.

Our interview with Amy Roiland and Jerry Terrance the Original Carpetbagger. We set up an interview with Amy Roiland from Afashionerd to tell us a little bit about her style and which Jerry Terrance bag is her absolute fave.

Here are some lovely outtakes from our favorite blogger Amy Roiland holding all of her favorite Jerry Terrance bags “vintage & new.” We were excited to be apart of this adventure with Amy & Jerry’s Bags.

Une Femme Est Une Femme Lookbook F/W 2013



The following photos are our final out takes of our Lookbook with Zoe from Grand Theft Thrift. Inspired by the ever popular new wave film called Une Femme set Une Femme (A woman is a Woman), has been one our favorites and on of the most inspirational Godard movies we absolutely adore.  So of course we would feature a Lookbook dedicated to this iconic film star and classic Godard feature. We felt Zoe from Grand Theft Thrift played a perfect role of Anna Karina. We used pops of red, blue and white, as well as the popular cat eye makeup and turquoise blue eye shadow. Special thanks to Skylight Books, for letting us take quick snap shots=)

Une femme est une femme



The term for French new wave films of the 1950’s through the 1960’s the film is

Une femme est une femme 

is one of our all time Nouvelle Vague favorites. The leading role is Anna Karina and our style muse extraordinaire. “The film centers on the relationship of exotic dancer Angéla (Karina) and her lover Émile (Brialy). Angéla wants to have a child, but Émile isn’t ready. Émile’s best friend Alfred (Belmondo) also says he loves Angéla, and keeps up a gentle pursuit. Angéla and Émile have their arguments about the matter; at one point, as they have decided not to speak with each other, they pull books from the shelf and, pointing to the titles, continue their argument. Since Émile stubbornly refuses her request for a child, Angéla finally decides to accept Alfred’s plea and sleeps with him. Since she shows she will do what she needs to have a child, she and Émile finally make up so that he might have a chance to become the father.”~wiki

Some of the standout colors of this film in particular are red, white and blue. The colors Ana wears and her makeup is done one Cat Eye with blue eye shadow. Which we absolutely love. Check out our look book editorial “Une Femme Est Une Femme”with Zoe from “Grand Theft Thrift.”

 

David Bailey Stardust



David Bailey Photographer for Britsh Vogue, captured and helped create ‘The Swinging London” of the 1960s,  a culture of fashion and celebrity chic. These black and white shots of iconic musicians and models are quite stunning. I also found this short little documentary on David Bailey filmed by Susie from Style Bubble. Extraordinary snapshots from David’s career in a exhibit called Stardust. Instantly we had to repost this amazing talent.
