We appealed to our group of creative friends and contacts to help shoot our first set of videos for Silk Ilk. Not just video with nice soundtrack and pretty girls (and of course we will be posting some of those on our site in the future) but we wanted to celebrate our love of silk with something more thoughtful.
So Silk Ilk’s first video is a homage to this amazing fabric, originating millennia ago to be worn by royalty, challenged but never completely displaced by polyester, and uplifting to wear no matter how old the piece.
We draped the models, Courtney Varley, Tullia Rohrsheim, and Kierna Kerr in our silk, asking them to look, in turns, serene, sensual, playful, wistful. It was a long day of shooting.
The result is a dreamy mix of moving images, shot with the very best of cameras, manned by excellent crew, and a set that is worthy of an interior’s blog. They turned a product we were already proud of into something even lovelier. And stay tuned for more videos we will be releasing later.
