Here at Lipsy HQ Summer has officially kicked off with an extremely stylish bang!
Last week we managed to escape the office for the day and head out of London to the very grand and rather posh polo club in the beautiful surroundings of Surrey. Unfortunately we were not there to soak up the sun whilst sipping on cocktails. Instead we were there to shoot next season’s VIP collection, which fortunately for us was just as fun! The Lipsy VIP range is instantly recognisable and a hugely popular and renowned collection recognised for being modelled by the most glamorous girls of the moment and this time it was no exception. We were joined at the location by the stunning Lucy Watson from E4’s hit show, Made In Chelsea. Lucy will be the next model of the VIP collection for A/W 14 and as huge fans of the show we couldn’t wait to have a girly gossip with her in between takes to find out all the juicy goss! Unfortunately, our lips are firmly sealed daaaaaaling!
Taking inspiration from the high society show, the shoot was themed all things Chelsea and fabulous. Lucy looked show-stopping in floor sweeping gowns in the hottest runway shades and silhouettes. Our fabulous Art Director invited several young and rather handsome Polo players to act as eye candy on the day (and obviously do a spot of modelling), much to all the girls delight. Not quite as appealing but still fab all the same, Lucy posed with a gorgeous horse named Tilly for a couple of the takes. We were hoping ex-boyf and fellow cast member, Jamie Lang would turn up on set and whisk Lucy off, riding on the horse into the sunset…..no such luck! However, Lucy who is an avid rider was completely in her comfort zone and the images turned out even more gorgeous then we had hoped.
Being at the shoot got us thinking about our outfits for our Summer social calendars. Already our diaries are filling up with weddings, races, birthdays…. It would seem that you’ve been thinking the same with our current VIP collection making up most of our hottest selling dresses week after week.
