Stylist’s own

We took a trunk of clothes and a camera into the late afternoon sun for a game of summer dress-up.

Model Signe chose her favourite pieces from my wardrobe for the shoot – where we played eveningwear against a backdrop of sunshine, cut grass and … an ice-cream van.

It’s a shot you see over again as soon as the sun comes out in the UK, but like the ice cream, we couldn’t resist. And I like the contrast of the black dress especially, rather than the girlie floral prints you might expect.



Signe said: “I love the green dress because it reminds me of my mum in the ’80s. And I feel like I’m at Glastonbury in the ’70s in the floral!”

Ps, she devoured that Strawberry Split seconds after the pic below was taken – and then had a 99.

We knew we liked that girl.
