Chanel cruise collection for Harper's Bazaar
Chanel asked Bazaar to do a story on their new cruise collection 2013/2014. I used the movie Indochine as inspiration for the imagery. Being a french colonial style, it was important that the color tones of the location match and compliment the collection. I wanted sun washed yellows and faded whites for the background with some hints of earth tones. The Ho Chi Minh Fine Arts Museum provided the perfect setting. There were moments where we had to wait for the sun to come out so that all of the shadows were sharp with lots of contrast. The photographer, Bobby Nguyen, did a perfect job of capturing the feel that I was looking for. Have a look at the behind the scenes video as well.
