Pose all you want but it's the photographs taken on a whim that burn us from the inside out. Catching that afternoon sun haze (unplanned), garden hangs in purple floral knickers and sitting on the kitchen bench just because you feel like it. This is exactly what we found in the mail box. Postcards from the Billy Bride gang.
The final score for what has been a quartet of DIY projects catching that glint of silver and gold from skin to skin. If we were watching it all go by in a vintage home video, the slides would look a little something like this: cute kid in tie-dye forest hanging, bomb dives from a knit bikini-clad Rachel Rutt, Ollie Henderson getting beached and now the cheekily titled Wake N' Bake fronted by familiar RUSSH face Teresa Oman. Photographer Ryan Kenny, stylist Ruby Heery and designer Renee Warne wrap up what has been their last cosmic creation for this collection.
Why is Teresa one of your favourites?
Ryan: She is my best mate and a massive weirdo. She's insanely beautiful but that's just the beginning. You can never take too many photos of her.
What is it about her that just gets to you?
Ruby: Those eyes, it's the first thing I see when I look at her. She's effortless, and that's one of the hardest things to find in a model, and for me the most important.
And how does this transcend into the Billy Bride ethos?
Renee: Teresa has a magnetic aura, she's completely disarming, unguarded and real. Working together was so easy and fun, we had the ultimate dream team.
Renee: We have lot's of exciting collaborative work planned for 2013. The dynamic of shared ideas never fails to create something unique and special. The heart of our next collection is based on romance and love stories.
