Patrice was recently commissioned to shoot the annual jewellery Christmas advertorial for Harrods magazine. A follow up to the watches advertorial over the years, as well as previous jewellery shoots.
The brief was to create a look that evoked the café society of the bohemian twenties & thirties, whilst focusing attention on the brand collections. A multitude of post production techniques were used to push back the model and emphasise the pieces worn, to bring back stronger colour here & there.
Old Polaroid borders from Patrice’s archive were used as ‘frames’ for the model images and the backgrounds for the still life are a combination of original paintings produced in Patrice’s studio & fabric overlay in post.
