To begin with, this was a great shoot. We were working with Uma who was new to us, but she was lovely and so grounded for a young soul. The day was beautiful and warm, although technically still winter. A few hours into the shoot, Hannes, our fantastic photographer, looked up into the trees surrounding us and said, “Is that a parrot sitting in that tree?” Sure enough, it absolutely was. When Hannes called him and put out his arm, he promptly flew in and had a seat right on his outstretched arm. He was very interested in us - mostly Hannes - and what we were doing! Turns out his name was Mikey, and he lived on the property of the shoot. Although he was interested in being in the photos, he wanted to be the star, and not Uma’s side kick! Hannes found him truly captivating, so the end of the shoot became “The Waiting Game”, calling the parrot and waiting for him to come and sit near Uma. You’ll find Mikey inside the front cover of the catalog. Our new collection is inspired by the wilderness, thus the colors and names.
I envision the colors and stripes sitting beautifully in simple country houses and cabins all over the world. For me, it was once again time for a more colorful story, with lots of mixing and matching as always. The introduction of the stunning new Jasper collection is an exciting one as well! It’s a construction that I’m crazy about because it’s different, beautiful, and because it lends itself to many different products.
