Behind the scenes… at the Xmas Lookbook Shoot

July 18, 2014 in: Coast Moments

Earlier this week our team were busy capturing the key Christmas looks to inspire your party season

It’s never too early to start planning your important party looks is it? With leather and lace and armfuls of glistening accessories we watched as gorgeous model Maja glowed in front of the camera.

Here are some sneak peeks at behind the scenes of the shoot at Rida Studios, London…

‘If you have not already I urge you to visit the latest Henri Matisse exhibition; Be warned nothing quite prepares you for the beauty and scale of Matisse’s late work shown at the Tate Modern until the 7th September 2014.

 Henri Matisse - The Parakeet and the Mermaid 1952

Henri Matisse (1869 – 1854) was one of the most innovative painters of the twentieth century but for the last seventeen years of his life due to health problems turned to cutting shapes from painted paper.

As his strength declined, the scale of his cut-outs increased. The exhibition shows the development of these cut-outs and the beauty of life even as we face its end.’

So why not take some time this weekend to go and see the works of this late French Master, take a walk along the Thames and grab an ice cream in the sunshine? Or the rain… of course.
