TO by Part Two

Recently we have been working with photographer Simon Birk and stylist & model Alexandra Carl creating the campaign for Part Two’s new TO collection. We think Simon really captured the right mood, and the cool and talented Alexandra was such a pleasure to work with. The collection launches these days and contains beautiful styles, the shirt, the leather jacket, the sweatshirt ect. Here is a preview of the result

Johan Sandberg

The talented Johan Sandberg is one our favorite photographers. From his base in Paris he is working with both Chanel, Gucci, See by Chloe ect. He has a very distinct way with black & white and sculptural compositions which we really like. Recently we had the great pleasure of working with him for the Part Two Autumn 2013 campaign – we will post more about this shoot soon. Until then, take a look at some of his latest work! Even more here

Rosemunde Copenhagen

Last summer we were approached by popular Danish fashion label Rosemunde. They wanted us to redesign their website & online boutique and visual identity (- with one exception, the logo was only allowed to be tightened and simplified). We are always thrilled to meet new assignments that demands and challenges us to to re-think and re-invent existing brands. So we embarked on this and selected some talented photographers to capture the feminine and soft universe of the label. Paired with a crisp range of typography and a douce palette of colours their new brand universe is now launching and from what we hear is being received really well and gaining a lot of well-earned attention.

So about half a year ago we hired photographer Casper Sejersen to work with our idea for a set of flower still lives to pair up with the forthcoming campaign images. The merge between the pure femininity of the rose and the strong light and dark background gave the depth and edge to the images that we were looking for.

Next up we shot the campaign in a warm, blossoming and evoking summer garden with talented photographer Olivia Frølich and stylist Kathrine Agger (incidentally her dad’s farm in the countryside provided the pittoresque surroundings) … here is a little selection of the images (see the whole campaign here)

Listening to …

Taken by Trees’ latest album “Other Worlds”. She was just in Copenhagen this sunday and performed a stellar little concert for a small, devoted and semi-sedated audience. The album is really good – a kind of hawaii-dub-pop-reggae mix.
