Could we get some awwwws? Of course! If you loved Spell’s Desert Island lookbook, just have a nosey at the newest ‘Never Never Land’ lookbook and you’ll be totally impressed by the beautiful things featured in it. Well, we definitely got our eyes on a few goodies! Sisters Elizabeth and Isabella prove once again their amazing talent when it comes to creating jaw-dropping pieces. The two tastemakers, who have been enamoured by the feeling created when you combine feathers, leather and turquoise for as long as they remember, designed a new collection packed full with lust-worthy accessories and clothes.
Their latest lookbook? They describe it better! “You know what it’s like when you’re on holiday – you feel a little bit more exotic… and a little bit high… you lounge around your villa, all languid and buzzed… you smile with the locals, and don’t bother carrying your phone, and sigh when the sun disappears behind the horizon… Once again we’ve pulled together a little blog post during a crazy-hectic design trip to Bali. We like to try to harness the creative juices as they’re flowing…We hope you love the relaxed styling (we did our best with the few pieces we pulled out of production just for the shoot). Just a bit of fun to show you some of our new pieces dropping this week,” the sisters wrote on their blog. But what inspires them the most? What’s the main source of inspiration behind the girls’ seriously cool creations? “Imagery from our childhood,” Elizabeth and Isabella revealed in an interview.
The latest Spell ‘Never Never Land’ lookbook features Julia photographed by Andy Campbell. Most of the looks are styled with Spell, but there’s a few “vintage, model’s own and stylist’s own thrown in there for good measure.” On their personal style, the sisters said, “Spell has always pushed the boundaries in her personal style – back to when she was a grungy teenager with blue hair and ripped tights – she’s always expressed herself through fashion. I’ve always used fashion as a way to tap into my bohemian 60’s love child alter-ego, which has never fully merged with my real self. Spell loves pairing our own designs with as many Sass & Bide pieces she can afford, and I love searching out 60’s vintage. My fave piece from our Winter range is the leggings – I have lived in mine ever since we got them in.”
The girls’ new collection includes boho tribal maxi skirts, cowgirl lullaby minis, loose tees, kimonos, bags, and loads of statement-making jewelry pieces. What about the future? “We just want to keep creating, designing and doing super fun photo shoots – the creative energy generated through a shoot is electrifying! The goal is to keep discovering new, beautiful fabrics and materials to work with. Keep inspiring ourselves, which in turn hopefully inspires others (a fellow designer called this circular inspiration cycle ‘the ricochet effect’ – I loved that!),” Elizabeth and Isabella explained.
