Story. Fanciful. Dreamland.

With our largely neutral palettes and clean styling around here, you may not guess that we are both huge Tim Walker fans. Oh the tales he tells within a single still image! There is so much to learn from this consummate daydreamer who brings his own brand of fantastical fairy tales to life. Even his simpler, stripped-down portraits convey a rich underlying story, and showcase the nimble imagination behind the imagery.

If you are as enamored with Tim Walker as we are, you may be interested in having his book Story Teller on your coffee table for inspiration emergencies. There is also an excellent video interview by the fashion brand Mulberry, conducted by Penny Martin (editor-in-chief of a little publication called The Gentlewoman) that is broken down into an easily digestible Parts i, ii, and iii.

You may notice Tim Walker often has his models staged on incredible, other-worldly sets. He frequently collaborates with the brilliant set designer Rhea Thierstein. Check out Freunde von Freunden for an interview and tour of her studio!
