Super Styling by Atelier Cologne

We’ve successfully survived another Zed & Bee bespoke photo shoot and the beautiful images are sitting patiently on my desktop awaiting grading and uploading. It was another involved process of mood boarding, furious last minute prop sourcing, erratic carting of fresh food and flowers, and meticulous styling on the day.

It was while producing mood boards for the shoot that I stumbled upon some pretty nifty styling at Atelier Cologne from France. The personalities of Atelier’s Colognes, Orange Sanguine, Grand Néroli, Bois Blonds, Trèfle PurOolang Infini and Vanille Insensée are captured in wonderfully eclectic images depicting the man or women behind each scent. Expressive narratives set the scene, “His breath fogged the window while he watched new snow fall upon the frozen lake. He came here to catch up on his writing and escape the city. At that moment, the fireplace crackled, ice settled in his glass and his thoughts made their way back to the ink.”

A little windy word wise but stunning styling never the less.
