Describe your day shooting for Reiss
We arrived early at the location, had a quick breakfast and started with hair and make up. We began the shoot in one of the bedrooms of the enormous house before moving to one of the living rooms and a little later, the pool and the amazing garden. At the end of the afternoon we lost the natural light so went back inside for the final shot, and in the evening the entire team had dinner together which was so good and so much fun!
What was it like shooting in the south of France?
If you think about shooting in the south of France and look at the campaign we shot you would probably think we shot it in summer. Well we didn’t – it was at the end of November and it was pretty cold out there. However, the location and the team were wonderful and made you immediately feel like it was still summer! It was a lovely day even though we worked hard.
What was your favourite look of the day?
I liked all the looks we shot, but especially the Kaneo black skirt (coming soon) with the Orchid white top; simple and elegant, the double-layered skirt made it feel new and fresh.
What are you looking forward to wearing this season?
I’m looking forward to wearing slightly-oversized tops in different colours and great quality, light fabrics. I’ll probably wear them with black skirts or shorts and some high heels.
Where will you be jetting off to this summer?
I’ll probably be jetting off everywhere for work, but I’ll be going on holiday with my boyfriend to the Spanish Coast or maybe a Greek or Italian Island too.
