Flash Tattoos

Flash_Tattoos_02

This year we have been spending a lot of time out on the eastern tip of Long Island, watching movies in the backyard with friends, having picnics on the beach, driving around windy country roads to farm stands in our 1982 Mercedes. One morning my creative partner in crime (Kelly) came in and said look at these! Everyone at Surf Lodge is wearing them and I want to paint a girl’s entire body like a warrior princess with them, do you want to shoot it? Obviously.

Part of fashion is looking at the culture around you, taking aspects of it, like trendy flash tattoos the girls in Montauk are rocking, and turning it into a fantasy, into a story that only lives in our minds yet is inspired by the world around us. It took Kelly 4 hours to adorn our fearless warrior Sofia before Ido took over with hair and makeup. With some amazing Issey Miyake pieces catching in the summer wind whipping around her body, we followed her into a world of golden goddesses…here is to the sparkling days of summer before the twinkling light washes away like flecks of gold foil.

The Essence of Bali, a fashion film for Cuyana

We’ve now  been all over Bali, learning about the culture, experiencing nature, marveling at the water. Today we take all three together into the story of summer in Bali, experienced through our beautiful travel companion and model Anastasia Krivosheeva. From the optimism of the morning to the beauty of a beach sunset, Bali is resplendent with all forms of sensory goodness.

Cuyana + Bali Water



Ok, so we ARE on an island, where the main attraction is always and always and always the beach. I’ve seen so many beautiful beaches I’ve had the joy to share here with you, from the secluded Cumberland Island to the spectacular Virgin Islands and super popular beaches of Brazil… but this was new. Bali served up my first black sand beach. I couldn’t believe it, not a soul was there to witness the glory of a perfect sunrise. Golden light, black sands, colorful fishing boats, it’s so idyllic I still can’t believe it’s true… and I got to photograph it! So let’s start the week with the rise the of sun, with all the possibilities of the world washing over our toes…

Cuyana + Bali Nature

Cuyana_Bali_Nature_002

So, why did we go all the way to Bali to shoot the summer campaign? The answer is simple if you look at the product. Cuyana is a fashion brand producing a limited, curated collection that aims to be timeless. They source manufacturers from all over the world – not because they want to find a way to be less expensive, but because they want to hire the best of the best. If you want to make a cashmere sweater, why not have the experts in Scotland, with their knowledge going back hundreds of years, create it? Or the perfect leather tote…who is amazing with leather? The artisans of Argentina.

Cuyana searches the world to find and support the creators, cutting out the middle man and selling the designs themselves in order to keep costs down and quality high. So to answer the question above – why did you go all the way to Bali to shoot this summer Cuyana campaign? Because all their new gold jewelry is handmade in Bali and what a place to be!

Yesterday we unlocked the key to Bali culture but that is only a fraction of the story…arguably many people come here for the awe of the island’s nature scene which is as lush and beautiful as the people themselves. I was awestruck by the endless vistas of rice paddies wrapping around the island’s mainland. The air is damp and thick, and in the early evening light, the view fills with mysterious blueish smoke from farmers’ fires, turning the look into a cinematic movie scene. It’s serene and beautiful and it’s only the beginning of Bali’s natural wonder…

Of course Bali has amazing resorts (remember the dreamy Amandari & serene Como Shambala?!…because I do!) but you can also rent awesome Bali homes like we did with the team from Cuyana. Just around the house, we found perfect rice fields and coconut trees. Our first morning there all we could do was wander around in awe of the early morning light.
