We shot our first ever Spring / Summer 2015 last year, so imagine having to keep this whole thing a secret for 6 whole months! Now that the collection is out (the first drop is available here), I can finally let you in on the action 🙂
The shoot went on smoothly partly because of our friend and photographer, Nadirah Zakariya, was a dream to work with. It’s super important for us to have someone that works great with kids, and she’s exactly thatProcessed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

You can easily shop the Kriketa here, Midnight hash Masala Top here, and the Forest Hash Masala Pants from here

The concept behind Passage Through Malaya was inspired by the movie The Darjeeling Limited as well as travelling throughout Malaysia (imagine wild animals, a map, old trains, and polaroids). Even though we tried to be as organized as we could, but you can only plan SO much when it comes to 10 little chickadees, right?!Processed with VSCOcam with c3 preset

Not to sound like a creepy crawly, but seriously, CALL US AND WE’LL BABYSIT FOR YOUR CHILD 🙂

To incorporate the travelling concept into the shoot, we made a blown-up bus/ train tickets like how you would find them in the 90s

Behind every good man picture, is a great woman team. The enthusiastic parents and aunties that were shouting, jumping, making alll sorts of noises and hand gestures just to get the kids to respond accordingly; THEY’RE the real heroes 🙂

This little rice ball fits our Forest Hast Tuah Playsuit quite nicely. He was squeezed left and right by everyone. That’s what you get for being so pudgy!!
