When you combine Joshua Trees, cacti, dusty roads and the divine Rocky Barnes in the middle of the Californian desert you are sure that magic is going to be made. Deserted is collaboration with our Northern NSW stockiest Driftlab showcasing key pieces from the LILYA Spring/Summer Collection. We are so in love with this shoot and we hope you are too!
Daria Werbowy is one of our all time favourite model muses and a lady that does not need much introduction. The Polish born model’s natural beauty has fronted many Vogue covers and catwalks aswell as being the poster girl for some of the most iconic brands in fashion for over a decade. We love her carefree sensibility and her ability too look good in almost anything or simply nothing at all….
Having being scouted on her way to the train station in her home country of Latvia, the Northern European model Ginta Lapina has been turning heads in the industry ever since. Gracing the covers and runways of prestigious fashion heavy weights, the icy blonde, porcelain-skinned beauty is one of our favourite models of the moment.
The sister duo ‘The Bloom Twins” have been on our radar ever since we were introduced to them by a mutual friend and music producer. The 17 year old Ukrainian twins are already making their mark on the music and modeling industry having recently signed with world renowned NEXT model management. Not only are these girls insanely beautiful but they are also talented musicians with a unique and alluring sound. We were lucky enough to be able to chat with the girls.
L: HEY GIRLS, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CHATTING TO US! TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELVES AND HOW YOU ENTERED INTO THE MUSIC & MODELLING INDUSTRIES?
BT: Hello, we entered the music industry even before we were born. We always were surrounded by music. We started to sing in harmonies before we started to speak. The first instruments we decided to master were violin and flute, but it didn’t go well with violin and we redirected ourselves to learn piano. Our parents weren’t always happy about our big passion in music, cause we would try and play it every day, 24 hours a day. Thank God we didn’t want to play drums! Then, a year ago we met our managers through friends and decided to move to London. But we never expected to get into modelling.
L: WHATS CURRENTLY ON YOUR MUSIC PLAYLIST?
BT: Plastic jungle by Mike Snow, Lotus flower by Radiohead, Daydream in Blue by I monster, and Portishead.
L: WE LOVE YOUR SOUND, WHAT ARE YOUR MUSIC INSPIRATIONS?
BT: There are few incredible bands and singers who inspired us to create the music of our own. They’re Portishead, Muse, Lana Del Rey, Depeche Mode, Woodkid and the XX.
L: WE THINK ITS PRETTY COOL THAT YOU’RE TWINS – WHAT THE BEST PART OF BEING ABLE TO WORK WITH YOUR SISTER?
BT: We’ve got an amazing opportunity to do everything much quicker then everyone else. We are quite similar and while one does certain work (that both of us need to do), the other one will do something else, we utilise the time! And we love to perform together, cause we feel each other.
L: YOU’VE ALREADY BEEN FEATURED IN SOME OF THE TOP MAGAZINES – WHATS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE MODELLING EXPERIENCE SO FAR?
BT: Our favourite shoot was for Italian Vogue and it was a pleasure to work with such a good team.
L: WHAT WILL WE BE SEEING FROM ‘THE BLOOM TWINS” IN THE FUTURE?
BT: We want to write new songs, and to do more gigs and we certainly want to release our first EP.
