The “month of love” is a theme that seems easy to create art around; a little red here, a smile there, pink hearts in that corner – et voila! – You have a Valentine’s LookBook.
This month however, we struggled with what we really wanted to say about affection, about Valentines and most of all about love. Especially in a time when it feels like the idea of romantic love is evolving & in constant flux.
We struggled with a theme for this month’s LookBook all the way until the day of the shoot. It wasn’t until our photographer (director extraordinaire & love guru), Sana, suggested we play with the idea of me-time as a form of self-love that the idea of ‘Love & Solitude’ came to be.
So then, in a month filled with the celebration of intimacy between people, we celebrate closeness with self. Alone time to read, reflect & enjoy your own company.
Thanks as always to our friends at Bata – whose comfortable heels allow us to extend some of that love to our feet.
“Romance your damn self.”
