“In a land adorned with the ghost of Australian legends and the vivid, inebriating landscape, we sought to showcase our proud Australian heritage. It was in this consuming and magical place we breathed life into a redefining collection of impeccable textiles and luxurious silhouettes. Over the four days of shooting this campaign, we went only where horse would go and where man dares to adventure. Our team became family as we embraced the harsh and magnificent alpine Australia elements together, to manifest this visual repast.”


“We invite you to become enamoured in the days where man and horse were one, where romance hangs inexorably in the air, and where the beauty of the wild dominates. We invite you to be captivated by Untamed Romance.” – Grace Loves Lace
