By being yourself.
As of late, I’ve been bombarded with a slew of creative projects, which is fantastic, but also leaves me with very little time to sit and write about any of it. Thankfully, I have an awesomely talented group of contributors that have been serving up life, humor, and of course, lots of fashion to fill in the gaps while I’m busy creating away for clients. You can check these lovely ladies out on the about page, or better yet, follow the social links at the end of their articles. From film to fashion, Lauren Ciaccia's feed will give you all the nostalgic good feels. Christina Grasso’s feed lives in the clouds and will make you feel at ease. Daniela will make you laugh...and think, and Ozlem will dish you up daily slices of pop culture. These ladies are EXTRAordinary.
Relevantly enough, I had to work on a really quick mini campaign last week for one of my favorite cult handbag lines (hardly cult anymore) Les Petits Joueurs. They were preparing for a Fall handbag preview with Neiman Marcus and needed some imagery created around the theme of being extraordinary, which is exactly what their collection is! Each of their bags is designed with a personality of their own, making it not so subtle why I’m obsessed.
I really wanted to share these videos because I find them to be uplifting, plus, Mr. Shifty eyes is so damn cute (just added him to my collection 👀). Not sure why it happens in this order, but I always create on instinct and then decrypt the messages in my imagery after their creation. Looking at them now, as a group, the theme is obvious; the commonality between all of the bags is, ironically, their uniqueness. All with different details, characteristics, and dare I say, personalities? But together as a happy little bag family created to serve similar purposes. That’s what makes them extraordinary, being different, but being the same. I feel as though that understanding can be applied to a lot more than just handbags, but for now, can we not just agree that to be you and you alone is indeed extraordinary? ❤️
