We adore the set design and styling of this shoot for Luxury label Marie-Chantal SS17 collection which takes it’s inspiration from 70’s Hollywood and the classic glamour the period is renowned for. This retro-chic collection combines fresh tones with vintage vibes. The label concentrates on classic design for both boys and girls – with lightweight cashmere knits for the boys and silk party dresses for the girls. The shoot includes some beautiful wallpaper and tiles, so we had to find out where it all came from.
Photographer Joanna Paterson sent us her most recent work for No Added Sugar “Kith & Kin” SS17 and we adore the fresh and free approach to the shoot. The clothes still punch through the image for our attention but in a non overly structured aesthetic. Poignant at times, free, fun and lots of smiles. Find out more from Joanna and see the shoot…
