RAW BASIC


WEARING: Melissa Araujo Basic Tee.

I am very proud to say I am done the re shooting of my first collection: RAW.  Have a look at the new editorial here and the lookbook here. It was photographed by the very talented Particle Observer; we have great chemistry on set and our creative direction is always on point. I have wanted to do this project for while, as I felt the first version no longer represented the aesthetic of my brand.

I love the location, the feeling and the final result of the photos. Once again minimalist and monochromatic. There was a lot of time and work invested in this, I could have left it alone, but I am a perfectionist and wanted my vision to come through. This piece is one of my to go to basics, made of bamboo jersey, super comfy.  Seasons come and seasons go, and I  continue to wear it. To get yours, check here.

  20. These are so beautiful & the architecture in the background looks striking against your designs, such a perfect location. I'm the same, total perfectionist, but I think if you're not feeling something & it doesn't seem quite right to you anymore, it's always worth re-doing until you're happy with it. Especially when it's something so important to you & that you've already invested so much time in as you have with this collection. Both the new editorial & the lookbook are perfect & I think you did the right thing re-shooting it :)
