God Save Queens, Welcome to Exile

I was lucky enough to art direct and shoot the latest God Save Queens lingerie campaign, a beautiful polish brand with stunning undies. 

I imagine queens through the ages in their underwear, this one I felt pulled by a 17th century queen, a mistress and a confidant. After becoming vampires they are exiled into the country where they live alone, pining in their underwear, feeding on pet birds and reading Justine by Marquis De Sade over and over again. 

I look forward to more campaigns with God Save Queens in the future, along with more of my own secret projects so keep following for updates!

Enjoy!

Let them eat cake!

It's hard not to break down crying when you look at these pictures of Lindsey Wixson as Marie Antoinette… as soon as I get my hands on the US Harpers April issue I will re scan these and replace them in higher quality. UNREAL. Go Karl Lagerfeld, but mostly GO Eamonn Hughes with that HAIRRR!!! You and Linds deserve all the credit for this.
