Fashion brand SELF-PORTRAIT presented their Autumn Winter 2021.22 collection, that focuses on elegant simplicity, with a series of images featuring Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor lensed by photographer Nigel Shafran. In charge of styling was Marie Chaix, with beauty from hair stylist Gary Gil, and makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench. The collection features relaxed styles for day and night adapted for modern woman’s needs.
As I was designing this latest collection, I was thinking a lot about the British sensibility and that effortless approach to British style, which I am so often inspired by. I felt we needed to work with someone to bring this to life rather than present the collection in a traditional show format, and having captured the hearts and imaginations of so many people over the last few months, I knew Phoebe would be the perfect woman. The moment I met her, I loved how down-to-earth she was whilst still having this incredible spirit and energy that perfectly emulates the attitude and values of the Self-Portrait brand. She is warm, independent, sensitive, expressive and completely captivating. It’s been a real joy getting to know and work with Phoebe and I’m incredibly excited to have her on this journey with us. – Han Chong, Self-Portrait Founder and Creative Director
I was delighted and honoured that Han chose me to work with him and such a talented team on his latest collection. I first spotted one of his dresses on a photoshoot and it was an instant love affair. Han’s collections for Self-Portrait have always been an inspiration, I love the strong structures he creates from such delicate and stunning fabrics and this collection is a testament to his incredible work. I’m so proud to be a part of this new project and hope to have a chance to wear the pieces when life goes back to normal again! – Phoebe Dynevor
