After 18 hours of flying (mostly over the vast snowy landscapes of Iceland and Canada) we touched down in Honolulu. As we stepped off the plane the air hostess welcomed us 'to paradise' as the warm, tropical air hit us.
We rented a house on the North Shore, just five minutes walk along the beach from Pipeline the worlds most famous surf break so we could watch the Volcom Pipe Pro (one the biggest surf comps of the year). It did not disappoint! Being an ‘El Nino’ year we saw some of the biggest waves they have had for years and the likes of Kelly Slater and John John Florence tore it up all week long. The surf scene of Hawaii is incredibly cool and their love for the sea and their island is inspirational.
After settling in and researching locations to shoot the new collection, we were excited to have a day with the gorgeous model and lifestyle blogger Rocky Barnes . We chose to base the shoot at the Kawela Bay, one of the most secluded beaches on the North Shore, lined with coconut trees, banyan trees and golden sand.
We shot from dawn until dusk and had a fabulous day working together to create the new campaign. Rocky was divine and I couldn't have dreamt of a better team to help capture the moment. In particular, we wanted to show how to combine the new pieces with previous collections, for example by layering up necklaces to create your own look. Its about having fun with your jewellery and enjoying how it makes you feel.
