Friday 18th June: Alex Cunningham for Peter Jensen Resort 2011
Here we have the latest in the Peter Jensen's rabbit's escapades - Resort 2011. To shoot the looks, Peter asked Alex Cunningham to dress a set with lots of over-size wrapped presents as a backdrop to his collection inspired by one of his childhood books "Lisa's Birthday". Here is the photographer Leigh Johnson showing the book to model Julia Nobis for direction! Its funny that I find most of my own aesthetic is unconscious reference direct from the illustrations I had in stories when I was a child............obviously its a really important and undeniable force on impressionable young minds! New parents - choose carefully when sifting through modern titles!
The collection is super lush - as always..................styled here with accessories made by the stylist Beth Fenton and party time millinery magicked up by Bernstock Spiers. Alex has echoed the crepe paper-chain prints in the props and the ribbon bow detail from Peter's new totes. Being a typically modest mouse, Alex doesn't want to take all the credit and would like to take this opportunity to make a few words of thanks............... to Rosy and aptly an accomplice named Warren:
"A very long night of wrapping presents with lots of thanks to Rosy & Warren who are going to apply to Father Christmas for stints as elves with these new found expertise!!"
