It’s hard to not be inspired living in Byron Bay, the beauty that exists in this little town is overwhelming. Its beaches, the landscape, creative and talented people, it’s no wonder thousands of people flock to this area year after year… Magical things just seem to happen here.
Here at Republic of You headquarters, ideas have been flowing in abundance. Feeling inspired, we dreamed up a luxurious washed-up beach shoot to showcase some of our favourite designs. With the help of some very talented people, our dreams quickly became reality.
We called upon Byron Bay’s ‘it girl’ when it comes to fashion shoots, self-confessed ocean dwelling, free spirited gypsy photographer Carly Brown. We also struck some serious gold in selecting our model for the shoot. Bulgarian born, first-time model and super babe Niki Gelagotis, blew us away with the ease at which she graciously rolled around in the sand looking glamorous.
On a near perfect Autumn afternoon, we trekked to a secret location where long stretches of white sandy beaches abounded. That afternoon we dined out on a delicious sunset, shadows and sea-mist.
This is the magic we created… We just couldn’t wait to share it with you! x
Our shoot featured the following items you can purchase from on our website:
We have a serious 70s crush….
Inspired by the 1970s New York poet, punk rocker and style icon herself, The Patti Smith Effect is a super hot cowhide leather cuff designed for both men and women, that offers an urban rock n’ roll edge with a seamless finish.
