Paradise exists, we found it.
For our recent Summer 17 campaign CAMINHO, we travelled to the Island of the God’s, Bali. We wanted our first campaign to resonate with our desire to discover hidden paradises and exotic cultures, and Bali was the perfect candidate.
Shot amongst the rugged cliff tops and vibrant green jungle, Impossible beach is completely secluded.
Straight off the plane and ready for adventure, we headed North to the cultural heart of Bali, Ubud. Here we sourced locally made accessories and beautiful rattan bags to be featured in our shoot. After a two-hour drive through bustling traffic and relentless horns, we arrived in Uluwatu eager to get to our shoots final destination.
Only minutes away, but completely hidden we climbed down a steep rock path and were greeted with a view of real life paradise. A beautiful rustic wooden house, blue skies, ocean at the door step, salty sea breeze, rugged cliff tops, the greenest green, surrounded by nature and not a person in sight, we were in heaven.
We were lucky enough to stay at the Impossible House nestled against the cliffs, on the waters edge. The three-story bungalow features rustic timber, soft white textiles and an overall feel of simple luxury. Absolute island life.
Shoot day one we were awake with the sun and excited to be shooting our beautiful Muses Madeline Relph, Coco Sirens and Raluca Cojocaru. Our amazing photographer was Amberly Valentine who captured our vision with ease. Only naturally, we were blessed with another dreamy day. We even got a visit from some monkeys!
Day two we finished up in the afternoon, soaking up the sun, balmy air and the crystal clear water at our feet. The entire crew was in high spirits, after two days shooting our first campaign with such a beautiful team and great success. We couldn’t be happier.
Our Bali experience was something special. Beautiful one day, perfect the next.
We really were worlds apart from real life.
