Last week, during Paris fashion week we had the opportunity to meet with the NBA Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook from Oklahoma City Thunder A.K.A. #fashionking.
If you never visit Kong Bar restaurant in Paris, we would highly recommend you to visit this unique location. Perfect place for high-class dinner and drinks on the 6th floor with a great rooftop view.
Okay, enough talking about Kong! Let’s talk about our friend Russell Westbrook. As a real pro, he took his time to talk with us about sports and fashion which of course is our mutual interest. We didn’t know that he would win the MVP but he told us that he has to fly back before the awards so I think he already knew 😉 For us as a brand it’s always great to hear that he likes our brand in general, especially the storytelling part of the brand and the amazing quality.
We wish him good luck and we would love to see him shine in NEWAMS this year.
Before this ss17 campaign shoot we were traveling and traveling and traveling…From our production countries to Pitti Uomo in Florence (Exhibition) to Studiozeta.org in Milano (Showroom) to Capsule in Paris (Exhibition) and after that we finally had the time to relax for 24 hours.
Okay, time to move forward again! After 24 hours of rest, we had a focus on preparations for our ss17 campaign (season 2) photo and video shoot in a city called Hilversum in the Netherlands. We were extremely lucky that we worked with a professional international orientated team to make a big success of our shooting day.
Because of our great model Jelle Haen, who did shows for off white and Kenzo last week in Paris and our photographer Stephanie Pistel who worked with the biggest magazines and celebrities we were able to shoot a lookbook + campaign + video campaign in one day.
Of course, we couldn’t do this with the rest of the team Anita Jolles (MUA), Ekaterina Razgonova (Styling) and Hyung Balkema (Light Engineer) and our camera man.
