Last December, I had the pleasure of working with Coobie on their very first lookbook. This is also one of my first collabs born out of SOS so it was even more special. What was supposed to be a short feature turned into a full blown photo shoot highlighting their ultra comfortable and pretty brassiere. I fell in love with the product on my first meeting with the owner Abbey who brought samples to show for peg ideas—in a restaurant no less! I was particularly drawn to the lace bralettes, especially the plum one. It adds just the right amount of sexy to a sheer top or oversized tee as it peeks through the collar. More styling ideas in the photos!
We wanted a relaxed, lounge-y mood for the campaign and a house in the hills of Antipolo made the perfect backdrop. An abundance of open space, sunlight coming through the windows and colorful nooks provided lots of places to shoot the looks. It felt more like a vacation house than a primary residence; all the green surrounding us was a welcome change for a city-dweller like myself. Here are the results of that one fine Sunday. If only work could be as effortless and fun as this all the time!
