Bottletop was happy to be back in our heartland - magical Bahia - amongst friends, in the heat of the Brazilian summer with our gorgeous muse and brand ambassador Candice Swanepoel.
The location for the shoot was a stunning contemporary space in Busca Vida, a hidden jewel with a private beach within thirty minutes drive along the coast from our atelier.
Now on his third campaign for Bottletop we were excited to be working with Robert Astley-Sparke behind the camera, with Mauricio Nascimento assisting and the talented Lau Neves on hair and make up.
We were also honoured to work with leading Brazilian designer, and fellow Salvador resident, Vitorino Campos on the styling of the shoot. We were proudly featuring shoes and designs by Vitorino alongside pieces by NY designer Narciso Rodriguez and Bottletops own Summer 14 made to measure knitwear in jasmine green and acid yellow.
With summer 2014 bringing the World Cup to Brazil we wanted this collection to proudly sport the bold colours and carnival tones from this country that we hold so dear.
As the sun shone down, the sound track for the day was provided by leading DJ Ariel Freitas. Energy levels were soaring and the party continued long in to the night...welcome to Bottletop Summer 2014!!!
