Behind the Shoot: Island Collection

1. What was the overall inspiration behind the shoot?

We wanted to capture summer travel at its best - long, lazy days, beach walks, relaxing mornings, island exploring, and easy summer nights.

2. What was the design inspiration behind this particular collection?

The color palette for the collection was inspired by island living - ocean blues, tennis greens, pool aquas, and bright blooms. We wanted pajamas that were bright and happy like Tiki and Pareo, but also wanted options in soothing shades like Pool and Harbor. The color palette lent itself to both notes.

3. How/why did you choose the shoot location(s)? 

We had visited Harbour Island previously and it is such an amazing destination. The Dunmore property has so many special, inspiring moments, and the interiors have a nice, understated island vibe. All of this is on the most beautiful pink beach imaginable. We can't wait to go back! 

4. What was your favorite memory from the shoot?

After we wrapped the last day of shooting we had the most amazing meal (and cocktails!) next door at Ocean View Club. The restaurant overlooks the beach and it's so relaxing. It was the perfect end to our time there!
