Plan to Shoot

The other day we had talented local photographer Chris stop by our office for a meeting about a possible collaboration shoot for our new jewellery lines!

I won't say too much about the new jewellery because we're also planning an event to unveil the new collections, yup collectionS! We've gone in a different direction to our fashion pieces and I am so thrilled about learning and working on new endeavors.

So the pieces in our new collections are slightly smaller than the pieces before, and definitely more shiny and for a slightly different demographic.

In our meeting we discussed locations, hair, make up and models but as its in the beginning stages we're stil pulling inspiration and ideas together.
I love this part of planning a shoot, going through magazines and websites to pull different images for possible ideas.

Because we want the main focus to be the jewellery, we're thinking of going soft, subtle and natural.
I was thinking of mainly beach shots because they seem to be the most appropriate for the look we're going for.

My second idea is to do something more intimate and relaxed, like a "getting ready" sort of theme. I was watching the Louis Vuitton Fall 13 RTW show and Marc Jacobs said something that I was really inspired by, that the collection was based on a fabulous woman that was getting ready but ended up with nowhere to go but looked ready and wasn't phased by the fact that she had nowhere to go.
I imagined this amazing independent woman getting ready in front of the mirror in a hotel in Paris while the sun was setting, putting on her makeup. It was subtle makeup, hardly any but still beautiful and city ready. She puts on her jewellery and a simple black dress but finds out the party in cancelled so she just sits around her hotel room all dolled up but nowhere to go. 

Which do you like better?

Love, Petra

Pretty in Pink

If there is one colour in the rainbow that suits everyone, I'd say it has to be pink. Whether you're skin tone is dark or light there is more than one shade that suits you.

The great thing about this colour is that it doesn't just stop with clothing, you can wear different lipstick shades, from light to dark or even hot pink if you're daring enough. But since summer is almost here, its time to break out your gorgeous floral prints, pretty pastels and flowy fabrics.

To be honest, I don't really wear pink, not because I don't think it suits me I just think its a bit too girly for my taste. I do wear pink when I can in moderate amounts, like lipstick or an accessory like a bag or scarf just to brighten my whole look but I'm not a fan of too much pink.

When it comes to style, its all about personal preference which is what makes your style unique. Kanch loves colour and certainly loves pink.

For those that love the accents:
If only touches of pink suit you then you might want to try subtle hints such as lipstick. There are so many shades out there you just have to pick the one that compliments your skin tone and the rest of your outfit. If you're wearing lots of bright colours already, you might want to stay away from a vibrant shade and go for something softer. 

For those that like to deck out:
If you do like a lot of pink make sure you do it moderately and it works with your entire outfit. You don't really want to wear neon pink with other neon colours unless you're traveling back to the 80s for a rave party. Wear some dark or dull colours but dress it up with a hot pink trench coat. You always want to balance out what you're wearing so it doesn't look over worked or over powering.
