I saw this beautiful banana-leaf print shirt a few weeks ago on somebody’s Instagram. Since then I was properly determined to find out where it was from and prepared to fight to get it. It turned out that it was of a London based brand called Poplin which made… exclusive pyjamas. But parading around in a night wear garment is not that much of a big deal. I had the pleasure then to meet beautiful Lucy, the brand’s head designer. We grabbed a nice cup of tea and looked over the pieces for the upcoming season which are all really gorgeous. And you can judge the results yourself:) after all not many people (actually noone) has realized yet it’s a pyjama top.

Besides that, I’ve got sad news. As you probably know Google Reader is shutting down. Therefore all of you following me on GR please remember to move to bloglovin’ HERE 🙂

Callum Ball // London Men’s Fashion Week

Posted on June 27, 2013

I took this shot of Callum BalI during Men’s Fashion Week in London. Callum is the new face of Burberry and his catwalk was made exclusive for this fashion house. I enjoy mens fashion week much more than women’s. It’s never as busy as the woman’s one, and it’s not necessary to ‘fight’ for street style photos. You can check my other shots on Miista blog where I run my streetstyle section regularly every week.


Lancôme x Alber Elbaz

Posted on June 24, 2013

These are the most beautiful make up products that I got asked to test. Alber Elbaz, the creative director at Lanvin did contributed to this limited collection for Lancôme by designing the product prints. The cosmetics are in beautiful boxes with the lovely sketch prints on them featuring one of four motifs: blue stars, red hearts, pink polka dots and green heavily lashed lids. The collection contains eye make up products like mascaras, false lashes and eye shadows. Alber Elbaz explains, that “eyes are the new fashion accessory”. I think that this sentence is the quintescence of Elbaz’s collection.

I’ve already tried the Hypnose Star mascara and Doll Eyes Palette, because these are the essentials of my daily make up. But I can’t wait to test the false eye lashes soon for some special occasion. I won’t forget to let you know about my feelings.

Reserved A/W 14 backstage with Freja Beha Erichsen // Scotland

Posted on June 22, 2013

Last week I had a chance to take part in the Reserved A/W 14 photo shoot with Freja Beha who will be the main face of the brand in the upcoming season. I have to mention that meeting Freja and seeing how she works was a great experience for me. It was also my first time in Scotland, which I frankly LOVED! The beautiful weather was one of the biggest surprises for me as I thought it would be really cold and rainy, also my friend warned me to take warm clothes and lots of layers because it will be windy. It wasn’t, I was wearing shorts and even managed to catch some sun during my first day in Edinburgh.

Reserved campaign was shot in a few locations. My favourite one was in an amazing Scottish castle, looking like that one from the Coco Chanel movie. There were thousands of beautiful spots for taking photos, an amazing library, bathroom, dining room, terrace and a big garden (or I should rather say a park). Freja was impressed by this castle as well, she also told me, that it was her first time in Scotland too.

The second location of the photo shoot was in the Scottish highlands. We drove there for about an hour, but I had a feeling that we were going to the middle of nowhere. There were absolutely no cars or  people around us. Only sheep walking in the middle of the road, so that we had to stop the car and politely ask them to move. It was really funny. I could also try on some clothes from Reserved F/W collection. My favourite piece was that oversized, furry jumper – see the 4th photo.

Finally, the third location was the studio in Edinburgh where we shot lookbook photos. In between I had a few hours to explore the city, see the famous Edinburgh castle, try some Scottish food in a local restaurant and spend a great time with the Reserved team, which was the nicest team in the world.   You will see the results of the photo shoot in September in the magazines and on large billboards in your city. Thank you Reserved for the invitation!

Last week I’ve spend a few amazing days in Scotland together with the Reserved team. We were doing photoshoot for their new F/W 14 campaign with Freja Beha Erichsen as its face. No words can describe what a beautiful woman she is. Those of you who follow me on Instagram could see my hour by hour updates. It was such a pleasure to work with the amazing Reserved team. I will show you more in the next post with the proper backstage photos.
These pictures were taken in the Scottish highlands. It took us no more than an hour to drive from urban Edinburgh to the heart of countryside. The views were breathtaking: hills, lakes, gills, green trees and sheep walking in the middle of the road (we did not see a single car). Stay tuned for more photos from Scotland. x
