New York City: Isosceles

As I descend on snowy NYC, have a preview of what I shot last September for my favourite Bec & Bridge girls’ Isosceles collection.

As I descend on snowy New York City (I am literally on a plane right now – oh the wonders of technology), it would be silly not to throwback Thursday on a Monday to preview a steamier good time, and a project I shot last September while in NYC for my favourite Bec & Bridge girls‘ Isosceles collection.

As I’ve Instagram-ed time and time again, these ladies are on an exciting trajectory: every season is more directional, without losing its accessibility – you and I both know that I’m a Bec & Bridge repeat offender, and damn proud of it. As far as I’m concerned, these pieces can jigsaw onto a sweaty New York subway, as easily as it would a rainy day in Sydney’s Winter, or a mad rush down to the beach for a chilly Autumn swim before it gets too cold altogether. It helps, too, that the team is one of my absolute favourites to work with – any permutation of shooting, styling, modelling and directing sings high notes for me, and a quadruple threat of the lot is basically a dream project come true, particularly when I can justify paying a stressed out NY cabbie to sit on the curb on Greene St for twenty minutes while I trotted back and forth between my tripod and the back seat.

All Apple staff using the back door on their way to work were extremely amused.

But for now, I must jet (ba-da-bing!) – I just got told off by the flight attendant, who looks like Zoe Deschanel, for still having my computer on.

See you in a few, dear Apple of my eye.

Shot, Styled and Modelled by yours truly, all pieces from Bec & Bridge’s AW14 Isosceles Collection:
