Behind the scenes of our ‘Different’ shoot.

Beautiful people and beautiful shoes make for a stunning photo but as we are constantly talking about the Bared ‘Difference’ we thought that we would add a little bit of something different to last weeks shoot with some headpieces designed by the talented costume designer Ingrid Beilharz.

Anna Baird

Our talented team consisted of: Sam Wines who curates our men’s instagram account and just happens to double as a model whenever we need him, Superstar stylist Ross McCallum who is also a Bared employee and can be found fitting our shoes in store regularly and the stunningly beautiful Tess Shanahan who’s legs appear often through our social media accounts. We needed some extra men’s legs so we were pretty excited when at the last minute we managed to find a friend of a friend Jay Bhattacharya who just happened to be a seasoned model as well. Alex had her first go at taking some campaign shots and I think she did a mighty fine job.

This BTS video is thanks to the talented Thomas Hyland from Clones and Clones.

You can see how impressed the boys were with their masks :)

Our models couldn’t see or breath under the masks, and it did seem criminal to cover those gorgeous heads. I don’t really know why, but every time the masks went on I completely lost it with laughter. I think it was one of those times when you had to have been there.

Men’s Fitting Room Launch Event

When we branched out into men’s 18 months ago we neglected to make a fuss about it, so after moving our office upstairs and creating a great new men’s fitting room we decided to have a party. After trying some Meat Mother taste sensations at the Royal Croquet Club, we had to ask these guys to do some food for us. Being a men’s focused event, we also needed some great beer so who better to ask than local craft brewer Mountain Goat. Check out the action on this short video by Clones and Clones or click on the image below. Bared Footwear Bared footwearBared Footwear11094727_10153850922664062_4294720256330992531_n

Behind the scenes of our ‘Glamping’ shoot

Some people are able to pull off driving a Combi and look cool. I am definitely not one of those people! I picked up the trusty ‘Mango’ from Hire a Kombi and headed down to Rye front beach to take some shots of our new summer collection.

I had recruited my gorgeous friend (and hairdresser) Yianni Drakoulis (aka John) as our male model. We were going for the dapper boho look and he pulled it off perfectly.

We engaged a super star team of stylists and the amazing Nicole Corbett as our photographer. These photos are not taken by her. Her amazing photos will be on my next post.

Our Health Breaky With Lola Berry

We decided that it was about time to show off our gorgeous new shop and we thought that a health and wellness morning that celebrated all things good for you was the way to go. I was so excited when the ever energetic nutritionist and health promoter Lola Berry agreed to come and say a few words.  Here are some pics of the day.

The launch of our first men’s range and our new website are only a few weeks away so we decided to take a few photos. Alex and I couldn’t think of two guys better suited to model our men’s range than Nick her partner and Andrew my reluctant husband but I think that they scrubbed up alright. Georgia was her usual amazing self!
