The Shoot

The Shoot: Urban Expedition, part 2

Step into the utility trend with this combination of khaki colours, linen fabrics and the delicate features of broderie detailing. Utility doesn’t just have to be tough and masculine; adding some classic whites and stitching make this trend accessible to everyone.

For the second outfit of this shoot, I wanted to go with something a bit more feminine, but still retain the utilitarian aspects of the concept. So, this ASOS silky maxi dress was kinda perfect, especially since it also came in khaki. By pairing it with a white broderie blouse underneath from Miss Selfridge, it ties the two outfits together and stops it just being an all-khaki outfit. The jacket is this really nice but tough linen jackets, with large pockets and a structured feel. The outfit feels a bit like an old-timey safari outfit, like from the 1920’s, except this time it’s in the middle of a city and not out in the jungle. It’s also quite similar to an old shoot I done back in 2015, of a different take on the safari theme. You can find it here.

I hope you guys enjoy this shoot. It was a hoot to shoot, even if the press officer from the museum got mad at me, and the security guard just wanted to chase me off the grounds for daring to have a tripod. 😀

Eight years in, and still killing this fashion game. Now a mother, wife, professional-by-day and part-time blogger in between, I still love blogging, producing fashion shoots and curating this blog.
My interests lie in producing high editorial-style content, shooting in grand and unique locations, make-up shoots and doing more studio shoots that really push the boundaries.
I'm open to collaborations and ideas, so please message me.
