Boy oh boy, we’re under a spell! We’ve just come across the latest Spell ‘Desert Island’ lookbook and we must admit we’re completely hooked by the impressive range of to-die-for clothing pieces and cool accessories. Well, you should just have a nosey at these goodies and see it for yourself! Still, be careful as everything in this collection is absolutely fabulous and bewitching!
Photographed by Johnny Abegg, the latest Spell lookbook is set in an otherworldly landscape representing the designers’ very own desert island oasis. So, in the warm spring sunshine the duo had the idea to create a little oasis with bamboo sticks, rope, crochet throws and cushions. Elizabeth and Isabella Briedis’ newest collection is filled with floating fabrics in tie dye and leopard print, lace and silky suede, hand crocheted fringing, tassels and hundreds of hand stitched cowrie shells.
As usual, the already famous duo manages to bring a wow-worthy line packed full with statement-making stunners. “Spell has always been a true creative, she studied fashion, graphic design and fine art before eventually finding her way over to jewellery. I used to be a film editor, which is handy because I can edit our Spell videos & photo shoots myself,” Elizabeth revealed in an interview.
The newest Spell spring/summer 2013 collection includes a jaw-dropping parade of jewelry pieces but also an array of notice-me-now clothes, boots and bags. And once again, one can see their love for the feeling given when combining feathers, leather and turquoise, and other natural materials like shells and bone, crystals, silk and cotton. In an interview with surfsister.com.au, Elizabeth spoke about what inspires them, the design process and revealed some of the greatest moments so far for Spell. “One of the highlights was moving into our new working space! Two years ago we were working out of a tiny mezzanine level in a factory, it was a shoebox! We were literally working on top of each other! Now we rent a huge light filled space. And every photo shoot we do is a highlight – it really allows our creative juices to flow all over the place! We’re always on such a high after a shoot,” she said.
