After a few hours of shooting some new pieces from the Hemp Collection, we moved outside to get our last couple shots. The light was absolutely perfect while Yabette was styling our model and muse, Bianca.
Yabette and Bianca met on an art project Yabette was working on. I remember her telling me about this super cool young woman she met…Yabette immediately thought she would make an awesome Swankety Swank model because she’s not only cool and gorgeous, she’s also a socially conscious creator who does work in the theater world as a performer and playwright among her other many abilities. (You should hear her sing!!) You can read more about Bianca here.
What really struck me about Bianca was her ability to transform in almost every photograph. While watching her transform herself, I saw that Bianca also perfectlyhighlightedtheversatility of the Hemp Headband. Pieces from the Swankety Swank collection are meant to be versatile, unisex, and transformative.
You can wear the hemp headband to the gym, to brunch, or to add a pop of color or contrast to your look.
Pull some hair out to make it more romantic, or pull your hair up to make create a look that’s more dramatic.
This headband looks and feels good. The natural fibers of hemp and organic cotton absorb and allow your skin to breath. You can find out more details about the hemp headband and check it out on one of our sexy male models in the Swankety Swank Shop!
From the moment Bianca slipped into this gorgeous black dress, it was pure magic.
The hemp/organic cotton ribbed jersey stretch is super soft and the black bamboo/organic cotton is slightly see thru. It was obvious that our model and muse felt amazing in this dress. It has a light, airy quality that feels like a whisper on the skin.
But it still looks amazing and sexy all on its own.
If you are looking for a versatile piece that make you look and feel super hot at holiday get-togethers and super cool every other day of the year, this is the piece for you. The Eco Chic Peek Skirt Dress can also be worn as either a dress or a skirt, and features a sexy hi/low hem.
As I’ve been working this week on designs for an editorial print opportunity and feeling the San Francisco subtle signs of Autumn, I am thinking future, I am thinking bold, and feeling the mystic undertones of our planet. Here are a few of my inspirations to share.
I discovered this last Spring, but I cannot stop telling people about it as it’s such a clear front-runner of intelligent, artful entertainment by no less than the Wachowskis. Continue reading →
Bringing hemp into the modern age with style happens easily with this Millennial Dress.
This is THE dress of the fall season! The versatile design and medium density weight jersey works in many climates, seasons, and occasions from sophisticated black dress affair to sporty casual. This hemp and organic cotton jersey blend is cozy, yet allows the skin to breathe with its natural fibers. It is a smooth small ribbed knit that also has an easy stretch.
Our first Millenial Dress buyer gave this feedback after taking it on vacation to Amsterdam: “Got a lot of compliments in Amsterdam- wore it a lot, on a bike, in restaurants, all the time.”
