STYLE / 110

when chantal asked me what ideas i had for our next style shoot, i started dreaming up this film shoot inspired by anna karina’s film “a woman is a woman.” french new wave is one of my biggest inspirations and i really wanted to recreate it. my boyfriend agreed to be in the shoot with me and was a really good sport.


we always start the process by pulling inspiration images. then we sort out the wardrobe options & location. for this shoot, we had a couple of key accessories & props we wanted to have: a trench coat, red tights, a sweater and vintage lingerie. luckily most of that we already had. and of course, we needed the brunette wig. nicole picked up this one and gave it a cute haircut right before the shoot on my front porch. we didn’t need every detail to be exactly the same, just reminiscent. this was a ton of fun to be a part of, so happy to watch the shoot come to life.




this shoot definitely made me question whether to switch up my hair color in real life too. it might be a nice change…

chantal shot medium format & black and white film. it created the perfect 60’s vibe.


we found arian’s outfit at zara. i love the options they have for men…


one of my favorite scenes in the movie is when they do these funny poses in the street…

    This is perfect. And oh my goodness, I want an Anna Karina wig like that (aside from being smart, cool, badass ladies – French newwave actresses have the best hair – Karina, Deneuve, Bardot, etc.)

  • 21. laura redburn // cardboardcities  |  December 4th, 2013 at 9:02 am

  • 27. Jackie  |  December 4th, 2013 at 9:38 am

    Oh these are so beautiful! Have you ever seen For Lovers Only? It’s a film set in France by the Polish brothers done entirely in black and white with a sixties vibe. It’s one of my faves – I think you’d really like it.

  • 28. Sunshine+Design  |  December 4th, 2013 at 9:53 am

    Super hot post! For such a blondie, you really look good as a brunette. The disclaimer is hilarious. Smoking really does make a scene more glamorous.

  • 29. Rachel  |  December 4th, 2013 at 10:04 am

    Oh! LOVE it! So inspired. Would be a fantastic engagement shoot theme. Thank you!!!!

  • 30. Loli  |  December 4th, 2013 at 10:06 am

    OY! Yes! One of my favorite style shoots produced by your team. I love the first photo and the last couple of posed shots. So whimsical and fun. I was just thinking about french noir today for no particular reason and then checked your site and , voila! Great job. I also can’t wait to hear the reviews on at-home blogshop. I would have secured a spot if i hadn’t just spent all my money traveling abroad for holiday. yikes.

  • 31. Victoria Smith  |  December 4th, 2013 at 10:12 am

    awesome all around and i gotta say, the dark hair looks smashing on you, dahling. like your disclaimer, too. ;) xo

  • 34. Ago  |  December 4th, 2013 at 10:47 am

    This is awesome!

    Since we have a baby girl now and family lives 9000km away we have to make constantly photos of us for them. After the 3rd shoot it gets boring if you don’t spice it up. This theme is a great on for our next family shooting.

    Domo arigatou for the instiration!

  • 35. Angélique  |  December 4th, 2013 at 11:14 am

    You are so pretty Bri! I love the atmosphere of those photos…
