TIALS: What was the inspiration for the shoot?
SV: 90s vogue, Celine ads, old movie subtitles and Sarah Bahbah’s photography. There’s a sense of fantasy, melancholy and glamour when you combine all those elements. The location also set the tone and I think without Superchief Gallery the whole mood of the shoot would have been totally different!
TIALS: What was the inspiration for the collection?SV:
I wanted to do a collection for Valentine’s day whether that’s for the girl who is looking for something sexy to wear for her partner or for herself. Whatever the reason is, we do it for love or lust, right?
TIALS: What is your favorite piece from the collection?
SV: Our new bodysuits! We have never really done bodysuits before and for this collection we did it in a floral lace and a shiny material so it’s a little more girly and feminine and you can wear it out with high waisted denim shorts or if you’re going to dinner then with a wide leg silk pant and some heels. I love how versatile bodysuits can be so hopefully everyone will love it too!
TIALS: What was your favorite part about shooting the Love + Lust collection?
SV: I got to shoot this with my friends so it did not feel like work at all. It was all a very collaborative process and I think we are all super stoked on how it turned out!
