behind the scenes – part 3 "the pier" BTS collection shoot at Coney Island

Concluding our behind the scenes is bittersweet… because there are months left in winter until we can live out the fantasy of this endless summer love dreamed up and brought to life in our SS11 lookbook.

To capture the mood perhaps one redhead that inspires us can sing it best, Florence and the Machine’s “Cosmic Love” just about says it all… that feeling of summer love that shoots you through the heart, its what gets us through the long winter months. Thinking and dreaming about those steamy summer nights to come even as literally tons of snow fall outside our window. The East Coast’s shores are all shuttered and snowed in for now, but let this summer romance steam up as we head from the amusement park to the pier, where we’re sure many of you has experienced a lustful summer kiss beneath the sun or the moon. Lets agree to wait with bated breathe for the summer to return, and to release a collective sigh of ectasy and not complain as that first heat wave hits us after a long, cold winter (and all we can say is we hope you’ve been staying warm between the sheets).

With Valentine’s day just around the corner take a little moment to show her you love her, we’ll be posting updates on valentine’s promotions and delivery deadlines (just some friendly little reminders). We won’t keep cupid waiting any longer, click play and let Florence’s voice carry you til sunset with the final set of images from behind the scenes of our spring/summer 2011 shoot…

sweet dreams

we may have left our hearts on the beach, our names written in the sand, to be swept and blown away… but we will never forget those summer days
