guys, you have to check out our homepage right now. i can’t get enough of it- i love everything about it, the model, the setting, and that cat (remember lily?). the model is sofija milosevic, who was photographed at an amazing home our team found in west philadelphia. these photographs exude the perfect softness and ethereal atmosphere to lull me into a daydream… longing to curl up in a ball amongst blankets and pillows, just like a kitten.
our photographer also got some shots of the house to share on the blog, because it really is breathtaking. the home is located on spring garden street in an area of west philadelphia known as powelton village, a historic district with victorian style estates that were home to some of philly’s wealthiest residents back in the 19th century.
the current owners, andrew and brian, purchased the house 6 years ago and nearly gutted it to transform it into what you see in these images. the decoration shows their love of 19th century design and antiques, with most pieces being inherited family castoffs and antique store finds. our team knew that the elegant, dreamy mood of the house would suit our kitten story perfectly.
i wanted to tell you guys a little bit more about these awesome herno puffer jackets we have right now!
herno was founded in italy in 1948 and originally specialized in men’s raincoats. over the years the company evolved to offer a women’s collection and in the last decade has conducted advanced research on performance – in their new range they are introducing high tech fabrics like polyamide to create high quality jackets that are a fusion of tradition and modernity. these are the ultimate winter jackets – not only will tthey keep you dry and warm, they will last you for years and years.
we have two styles of herno jackets- the reversible down hoodie and the down blazer. i especially love the reversible one because you can change it up with different looks! i hate winter but these jackets are almost making me look forward to snowy days and weekend ski trips… hanging at the lodge by a fire with a cup of hot chocolate.
i love how the jackets look paired with a body con skirt, over the knee socks and tall boots, or with skinny jeans and a flannel! here are some fp items i’d style them with:
our second catalog model, georgia larsen, was photographed by one of our studio photographers, nathan kula, at and around his home in northern liberties philadelphia. here’s a look at her day of shooting in behind the scenes photos taken by thomas northcut.
how rad is that last shot with the bridge and skyline in the background?? i love all these photos.
we have some really amazing comfy pieces right now that are great for layering or throwing on on days when you just want to be relaxed. i just got the with ease slubby tee and it is amazing – which one do you guys like best?
so a couple of you have asked us how we get our models’ hair so relaxed, wavy and perfect… which is a great question. so i asked our hair/makeup artist deanna and here is her method! i tried it out myself and it works wonderfully…
first, slightly dampen hair with a styling spray – she uses bumble and bumble.
next, separate the hair into two pieces down the center. then separate those two into two. start with 2 strands, either the left side or the right of head, and twist the hair away from the face. then take the 2 twisted strands and twist them together. secure on top of head with a hair clip.
allow time to dry, then remove clips and shake out hair.
