Time for a throwback! Here is a spring-summer lookbook from a couple years ago with the beautiful Shannon serving up exotic vintage tropical prints paired with knockout fruit props (no food was wasted on this shoot 😉)
As per usual, the collection found itself. Palm prints, tiger patterns, hibiscus florals and sassy silhouettes kept finding their way to me, and who am I to deny them?! The original concept was simple and graphic with the white brick wall and ginormous tropical plants. But, pending budget constraints and seeing a few too many models framed by oversized leaves on the internets, I decided to play with fruit and see where that went. It was a whole mess of fun, with grape necklaces, a perfect pineapple baby, lemon glasses, and of course, the ever popular banana phone 🍌🍊 🍉🍇 🍋
I love that every single one of these looks still feels relevant to Omnia today – unique and feminine, in a fierce tropical modern-day warrior kind of way.
And now…. a few behind the scenes pics and outtakes:
