CONCOURS d’ELEGANCE

Concourse 2Concourse 6 (1)Concourse 10Councourse 8Every August I wait in anticipation for the roar of supercars to glid along my beautiful coastal town and with the supercars comes a crowd that has as big of an appreciation for luxury goods as I do. From Ferrari’s to Pagain’s these sexy powerful pieces of art can all be viewed at the multiple events held during Concours d’Elegance. For decades now cars and fashion have had a synergy as they both are capable of telling a visual story people swoon over. And it’s no surprise that many of these automobile companies have broken into other areas of the luxury sector (like watches for example) to further their brand following.

Growing up watching my brother and his friends tinker with their Porches, BMW’s, LandRovers… I couldn’t help but develop a curiosity and a love for speed and cars. Over the years I found myself often incorporating cars with my shoots for editorials and marketing campaigns, like the shoot I did for Pacific Gypsea in Gordon McCalls personal garage. While it is doubtful I will see Naeem Khan gowns like mine grazing the grass at most of the outdoor events this week, we will see some looks that are worthy of your Pinterest streetstlye board. This weeks not to miss events:

McCall Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center

The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering at the Quail Lodge 

Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach 

And a slew of private parties that are worth the traffic if you are lucky enough to get an invite…

His & Hers

blog post april 17 2Saturday’s shoot was pretty amazing, the clothes, the cars, the jewelry. I could not be more excited about the launch of our men’s line, Pacific G- which will bw available on PacificGypsea.com!IMG_7363There are so many elements that are needed for successful shoot and the location is probably one of the most important factors when directing a photoshoot. This space… with his car collection and office on one side and her side with her art studio and gallery space. Through my perusing of Pinterest I’ve seen amazing things done to containers, barns, you name it. But this space has to be one of the best transformed storage units I’ve seen. For a moment I had a vision of me moving out of the bungalow and transforming a storage unit into my California hideaway.
