Textured white walls, luscious green ferns and hand-carved wooden archways set the scene for our beautiful Autumn ’21 campaign. Each click of the shutter capturing Kirstina's free-spirited, down to earth and playful vibes.
Our campaign was shot in a gorgeous home in Prahran, Melbourne that, from the second we walked in, had us reminiscing our travels to India, Morocco, Bali and beyond.
Meet our model and muse Kristina Mendonca and learn more about her top travel picks, holiday packing essentials and favourite pieces from our Autumn 21 collection. She also shares her best advice for feeling your very best in front of the camera.
1. What is your star sign?
I'm a Leo baby!!!
2. Sunrise or sunset?
That is a hard one, I think sunrise. When you see the sunrise it gives you this beautiful energy.
3. Dream holiday destination? Where would you go first, post Covid-19 when we are allowed to travel again?
For sure Africa on a safari!!
4. What are some of your holiday packing essentials?
A cute pair of sunnies, bikini, sarong, a good book and a good pair of headphones!
Oh and always Hydralyte ;)
5. What is your favourite piece you wore at the campaign shoot?
6. Best piece of modelling advice you can share? What tips do you have to always get the perfect shot?
Always throw a smile in when you’re getting your photo taken. Never be scared of the camera and pretend you're dancing. Sometimes the ‘in between’ shots turn out the best as they are the most authentic.
7. What would you love to be doing if you were not modelling?
Hmm Iwould say managing something or a business. I love organisation and numbers. Project managing something I’d say.
From the dusty pinks of Kenza and the soft blues of our Santa Rosa swimwear, to earthy tones of Portella, graduating all the way to the Warm Sand colours found in our Essentials, this campaign was reminiscent of far away desert sands and calm waters, the story of our team reminiscing their travels abroad.
