The past couple of weeks at Fin’s HQ have been solely devoted to creating our Autumn/Winter 2012 look book.
Trying to translate the look and feel of the collection onto paper is certainly a challenge so we began at the wonderful Lacquer Chest prop store in Kensington to find some treasures that would fit the bill. We could have spent exploring this virtual Aladdin’s cave choosing our dream home decorations but time was of the essence and we had to concentrate on the matter in hand!
We adored their fabulous bottle collection.
It would be impossible to talk about the props on the shoot without mentioning Fin’s family of brass pineapples. All the hours of Ebay bidding finally paid off as the pineapples took centre stage in the photo shoot, along with vintage furs, flags and rugs.
The photo shoot took two days and was shot by our trusted photographer David Brook. Of course it wouldn’t be a Fin’s photo shoot without creative direction from Fin and in this case, involvement with the photography itself!
Obviously, the real stars of the shoot were all of our fabulous new styles for next season. Unfortunately, these are still being kept a closely guarded secret for a few more months so we leave you with another picture of Fin brushing up on her photography skills.
Look out for the finished look book in a few months time!
