We recently hiked up to the Bunny Hutch in Lincolnwood—northwest of Chicago—for a photoshoot with our models Alex, Mandy and Zoe. After weeks of planning, organizing, haggling and wardrobing, we arrived at 8 a.m. to find ... rain. And wind. And fifty-degree weather. In June.
Naturally we made the most of it with some creative lighting, brave models, bagels, coffee and a lot of plastic tarp. By the time the rain eventually let up, we were having too much fun to care. Look for the finished images in our new lookbook feature soon! Until then: outtakes!
|It is 9 a.m. in this photo ...|
|The girls fill some downtime with pictures of their own.|
|You really don't want to mess with David's equipment.|
|Don't even ask.|
|Continue not to ask.|
|Zoe relaxes between sets.|
|This is where things started to fall apart.|
|A missed putt.|
|These shoes were made for golfin'.|
|The power of the bandeau.|
Once the sun began to peak out a bit as the shoot continued, we did some mix and matching with these versatile pieces! We took Ambiance Appeal’s Fuschia Cardigan, tucked it into Ambiance Appeal’s black harem pant, creating a high waist coupled with Jeffrey Campbell’s Gidget. Evil Twin’s longhorn tee was paired with Vanessa Mooney’s Brown Leather medallion necklace, to name a few.
