House of the rising sun
Remember that thing called summer? That season of the year when you could happily crack out the t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops combo without freezing into an icicle? To remedy this winter situation, we present you Amanda Leigh Smith’s sun-filled shoot from Topanga, California. Featuring big cheesy grins, side-swept bangs and ’60s bell bottoms all worn by the lovely Kelley Ash, you’ll be swimming around in giant warm pools of nostalgia. Shot on 35mm film, the shoot celebrates cowboy boots and paisley prints, giving a big shout out to freedom. Embracing Y.O.L.O in the true sense of the word, pairing vintage fur coats and chunky rings with the grooviest tinted shades. Check out Smith’s colourful vintage-inspired medley below.
