Printed silk bombers are all the rage on the high street. They’re sporty, fashionable and usually come in fantastic colours and prints. So I had to do a shoot with one of them. The bomber I chose is this gorgeous floral chinoiserie print from the H&M Trend collection. I love the pink and red tones of this print and I knew I had to shoot it with something plain to really show off the print. The dress I chose is this lovely white slip dress from H&M Trend as well that has these gorgeous straps on the back of the dress and a really good length for those of us who don’t always want to walk around in mini skirts. I could have gone for white trainers with the outfit, but I’m so short that I often need heels to pull an outfit off, so these old black and white New Look strappy sandals were perfect. The final touch is my new Chanel Le Boy, because who doesn’t love Chanel?
For the post-production of the images I thought I’d mess around a little with these flowers. I spotted it in an Elle Collections from a few seasons ago where images were adorned with bright colourful flowers on floral trends of the season. I’ve been getting a little braver in the post-production end of my images so it was fun to add all these colourful images to what would normally be rather plain images. I don’t quite know yet whether I’ll keep this up, but at least it’s something different for a very normal shoot.
