Behind the Scenes.

November 03, 2016

The start of a new season calls for new pieces in store and new fresh faces!

This week we had a fun shoot with the newest BOAW babe Sofia at Bird on a Wire HQ.

How gorgeous is our new model? And a super cool girl too (more on Sofia to come)!  

It was an unseasonably warm and sunny day in beautiful Lisbon but we still managed to style some cosy autumnal pieces that we think will be great additions to our collection. Our theme for the shoot was focused on neutral and basic pieces styled in a very sleek and normcore way to give you that slouchy yet put together look.
We looked at everyday staples like trench coats, stripy shirts, blazers and tailored coats, and tried to give it that BOAW feel! Check out the results and get inspired because these amazing looks will be coming into store VERY soon!

Our first look was a classic school girl ensemble (an old fav, as i'm sure you'll recognise). We paired a checked high waisted skirt with a simple tee and black baggy coat.

 Add some fishnets and cool strappy shoes to finish off a sassy 90s look.

We're loving tucking our hair into big chunky scarfs for a warm and cozy vibe. 

Blame it on Balenciaga! A red puffa jacket has now become a AW16 must have because of one of our favourite French designer labels. This super bright number will be perfect for those colder days and it will also add a serious pop of colour to your outfit! 

We took our shoot outside for some proper street style shots as we are still very much loving the backdrop of Lisbon's cobble streets, always a nice addition to our photos. How adorable is this black mini bag? We loved the contrast between it and the huge bright blue puffer jacket.

We had a quick change of looks and went back outside where we shot this gorgeous outfit: a stripped silky bloused tucked into some high waited mom jeans and topped with a black leather coat for colder wear. We loved adding some chunky gold earrings and keeping makeup and hair quite simple.

We quickly went back to the studio to make the most out of the natural light coming in. For this look we went for a silky white blouse tucked into skinny jeans and topped with a black coat. We accessorised with some black rimmed faux glassed for a cute and nerdy finish to the outfit

Next we styled a thin black roll neck with some dark-wash jeans and black leather squared heeled boots. A simple 90s vintage look perfect for chillier days.

This velvet buttery blazer is the perfect piece for transitioning into proper winter days since you can easily layer it under a bigger coat or wear it on its own. Here, it is styled with dark-wash flared denim jeans, 90s black leather books, a cute light brown leather bag that fits all your essentials and a pair of gold rimmed clubmaster sunnies.

Last but not least, how cute is this baby pink beret? These traditionally French wool hats are totally making a come back so we made sure to stock up our store with plenty of colours. Definitely keep an eye out for them! We paired it with some light wash dungarees for that Parisian girl look and a simple black knit top and leather boots. A match made in heaven, we think!
