Behind The Scenes Summer '17 Lookbook
After all of the lovely feedback we had from last year’s trip to Cyprus, it was a no-brainer that we had to go abroad again to shoot this year’s Spring/Summer look book. Flying direct from Newquay to Faro with a suitcase full of new Summer goodies, sun, sea and sand were on the agenda for a four-day trip to The Algarve.
Our crew, photographer Adj Brown and model Rosie Corr, stayed in a villa an hour away from the airport in the Medieval town of Silves. With tonnes of traditional tiles, textures and colours, our new collection was sure to look stunning in its beautiful surroundings. The relaxed ambience of the location made it ideal and added the perfect holiday vibe to our shoot, with over two thousand pictures taken on the first day! The team also had a chance to get up close and personal with the local cacti whilst sampling some delicious Pastéis de Nata (custard tarts to you and me).
Day three saw a move along the West coast to Portimão where the pastel coloured streets, tasty seafood and a buzzing atmosphere provided us with another perfect backdrop! As the best town for shopping in the area, trinkets and treasures were everywhere and let's just say a few 'props' even made it into our luggage.
Spending their last day at Praia Da Rocha beach, balmy twenty-two-degree sunshine meant it was time for the swimwear to make an appearance. Rosie had the terrible task of looking amazing in the infamous all-over leopard print swimming costume, on the beach, in Portugal, whilst eating a watermelon ice lolly! It could only ever happen on a Roo’s Beach photo shoot, but doesn’t she look fab?
