I worked with Samantha Rei years ago under her Blasphemina's Closet label on her Second Star line, and was delighted to see those photographs published in her latest book. When she approached me to work with her again, it was like... ummmm YEAH! Is that even a question?!
This time, we were celebrating her latest line 'Black Pearl', a collection inspired by 1920's Shanghai. Beautiful silhouettes, textures and details, this collection captures the most beautiful aspects of vintage style. With a tag line of Beauty. Strength. Rebellion., Samantha strives to help women feel confident, strong and comfortable in their own skin. She believes they can all be beautiful warriors and with this latest series, they can be!
