I was lucky enough to be invited behind the scenes at the ZU campaign for Spring/Summer 14. The scene was set for a perfect day… four perfect models, a perfect location, perfect team and a perfect, sunny 23 degree day.
What is better than one gorgeous blonde blogger model? Two, of course! Twins Danyell and Nicole from the amazing blog When words fail are this year’s dynamic duo for the new season campaign for ZU shoes shot at the very trendy Matisse Beach Club in Scarborough.
When ZU first approached the girls about the idea a little over two months ago, they were so excited at the thought of their first official campaign, and I couldn’t think of a better pair to represent this great brand. Fun loving. Tick. Gorgeous. Tick. Laid back. Tick.
I will admit to feeling a little overwhelmed at first, with such a hustling atmosphere and 2 gorgeous blondes running around it was easy for me to feel slightly out of my depth but after I got to chat with the girls I felt like I had known them for years. In an industry that can be a little tough, these two gorgeous girls are every bit as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. When I asked Danyell how they first got started, her answer was honest and warm “All our friends would ask us where our clothes were from and tell us that we were such posers and Nicole’s boyfriend is a photographer and told us we should start a fashion blog” How do they find time to shoot for their blog in between work? “We get up early either at Sunrise and go down to the beach or we shoot on the weekends, more often on the weekends” When I asked Danyell which one of our Australian designers is her favourite, “Ellery… Have you seen their Spring Summer collection? It is to die for” Our chat was so laid back and so easy that we talked for what seemed like forever, them asking me about my children and telling me all about their family in Perth.
And while I don’t want to give too much away of this new collection out in September, I will say this… This years ZU collection could quite possibly be my favourite so far. Nude heels, textured clutches, stunning sandals and look out for a pair of black strappy embellished flats… they may just happen to be the twins’ favourites…
