QUOTE SAM-“ I am constantly coming back to the era of Studio 54- I love the characters like Bianca Jagger, Grace Jones, Jerry Hall and Elsa Peretti. I love the boldness, attitude, freedom and fn that came from that era. There was an excitement and new feeling in the air. Its my favourite era of all time.”
COLOUR PALETTE-This season introduces a new stormy tortoise with emerald green, peach crystals, touches of white and a splash of red. The focus is on metal- gold, silver, rose gold and gunmetal. Lenses are solid and gradient with a focus on mirrors in blue, gold and silver.
PHOTOSHOOT-This season team pared ventured to LA to shoot at the iconic mid century modern LAUTNER designed house owned by LA personality James Goldstein. The house was the perfect backdrop for the seventies focused range which features glass walls and concrete detailing with glittering views over Los Angeles.
