Yesterday I got to work with returning client Celestree, and their beautiful hero model Nat Milisic, to shoot the brands two newest campaigns, high-summer and resort in a fun shoot that saw us head not only to the beach but also to the surrounding parklands in an effort to champion Mother Nature at her finest in a year where she has shown us exactly who is boss! Drawing inspiration from the surroundings the new shoots showcase the new duality of the business, from kaftans and sarongs for summer and resort wear to scarfs for Autumn/Winter and the thought process of the brand with such a powerful message of strength, resilience and direction.
For the first part of the shoot, resort, we shot at the iconic Red Leaf Beach. With a range of different views, from the boardwalk to the St. Tropez/ Amalfi Coast-esque sea-side houses in the not too far distance the shoot showcases the brands newest range of kaftans and sarongs worn in a multitude of ways to offer the modern woman the chance to see the versatility she can get from these stunningly printed pieces of works. Highlighting the beautifully decadent designs the shoot both emulates that summer feel but gives you a freedom of thought as to where you’d wear the pieces. We then moved on to shooting high summer, and as we changed gears and got ourselves into the space of preparing for the cold we moved into the parklands at the beach to showcase new and luxurious additions to the line in a fully dressed way that played effortlessly with Mother Nature to showcase just how easy it is to include each of the scarfs into your daily life.
If you haven’t yet seen the amazing new Celestree high summer/ resort shoots then don’t fear as I have a first look at some of my favourite moments from the day below, but be sure to keep an eye on there socials and online shop for more details on when you can get the pieces and how…
