Behind the Scenes: Le Mill Lookbook Fall-Winter '17

12 Weeks Ago
Le Mill co-founder Cecilia Morelli Parikh shares what went into the making of the lookbook. 

THE MOOD

“We wanted to reflect the new Fall-Winter ’17 mood; playfully romantic and deeply inspired by traditional French interiors.”

THE LOCATION

“The lookbook was shot in an old family home outside of Paris that dates back to the 19th century. The home is a wonderful way of showing how artefacts tell the story of an accumulation of history. A piling up of references that are so present in the Fall ’17 collections.

We also wanted to pick up on the relationship between romanticism and nature. The idea of nature inspiring awe in us the way it did for the late 19th century Europeans. The light was really important for us, and photographer R Burman picked this up by shooting on film, which gives the lookbook a romantic and natural look.

I always find that when you first get to a location, the first place you think the story is going to unfold in, is almost always not the one you get the best pictures out of. The start of a shoot is always easy, but often misleading and those looks often have to be re-shot.”

THE TEAM

“We have been collaborating with stylist Nikhil Mansata and Burman for years now. They have become part of the Le Mill story. What we love the most is Burman’s unexpected eye, and Nik’s vision for the clothes. What really works is that we can all come together, and collaborate. That’s rare these days. There are no egos, just a lot of chatter and good spirit.”
