Meryl Valerie x selectstudiony for Colbo
Playful. Sophisticated. Authentic. Comfort with an element of surprise. The spirit of the Colbo brand and Lower East Side concept store. Photographer Meryl Valerie and Creative Director Simon Douaire with selectstudiony, together created a series that dives into the essence of this playground like world of Colbo, filled with soft pastel colors, pure quality textiles and materials. A selection of different outfit compositions from the shop’s collection are used as elements to create color patches and blurs with the tones and textures of the clothing, that blend into a creamy mosaic, giving rise to this experimental photographic series. Capturing life in a still life inspired story - where the surprise elements are in the garment’s details of the still images, guided by a soft and understated elegant Polaroid portrait story thread.
