Basketball & Boomboxes

Feels like I haven’t blogged in forever! I’m such a bad blogger! Been so busy lately with shoots here & there and the reason for this post is we just shot the new Educate & Elevate lookbook which is insaneeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I’m so in love with the photos I had to brag and show you all!! We wanted an outdoor “90’s Brooklyn, Spike Lee” vibe (which pretty much sums up my personal style & ethos of the brand) so we decided to shoot at Plattfield in Manchester at the skatepark and basketball courts. Every other shoot we’ve planned in the past it’s literally chucked it down and had to be cancelled (typical Manchester!) but this time we were really lucky with the weather so we got that “hottest day of the year / Do The Right Thing” feel for the shoot! We even had an old school boombox thrown in the shoot this time thanks to Noo’s friend Chuck!  

Our photographer for the day was Mark Ivkovic of – Seriously cannot recommend him enough, I’m in love with every photo he took! He also proved white men can jump since he was shootin’ hoops every time the models took a break and had some skills on the court!! Make sure you check out his work on the link above and you can also follow him on twitter: @bangphoto

We were missing three EE team members for this shoot, Mellissa, J’nae & Lou so if you’re reading this it wasn’t the same without you three and I can’t wait for the next shoot when we can all be reunited! 😀 We’ve seriously got the best team ever so a big thank you to everyone involved & a special thank you to the beautiful miss Nathalie Emmanuel who came down from Liverpool to shoot with us, you are now an honourary EE team member 😉

Check out a preview of the lookbook photos below and let me know what you think!

    Love it when a shoot can be shown from another angle.
