malibu dreamin

6th January, 2012
For five days in Malibu, I lived in a dream. I found myself in a dream house, in a dream world, working with the caliber of collaborators i’d always dreamed I’d meet. We had free reign of an aesthetic surreality, to play dress up and make as many pictures as we pleased. We basked in the sun, we binged on bluesy tunes, we supped on champagne and we revisited the videos that inundated our adolescences. We swung on the swings and spun our feet in the sea. We got so unbelievably inspired, in love with the moment. Here begins the series of work that ensued:

PART I { photos + cinemagraphs by Jamie Beck + Kevin Burg // styled by + featuring Kelly Framel // clothes + jewelry by Kelly Wearstler // hair by Sam DiVine // makeup by Kristee Liu }

    Hey – maybe I am being a bit blonde about all this but I can't for the life of me find the name of the beautiful beige/orangey sunglasses anywhere in the piece – the ones in the second outfit which matches the glasses. they are so stunning they are killing me – can you tell me where they are from? Or anyone else know?
