“Laura invited me to come and see her at her hotel and she opened the door with a book about Jim Morrisson in her hands and a cigarette in her mouth.”
A bit more than a year ago we talked to Laura, the creator and owner of the brand L’ecole des Femmes about courage and about that a woman should have a personal style and already at that time we could feel her intriguing presence through words and the way she looks. So we can´t deny that we were pretty thrilled to see her in this exclusive C-Heads story realized by Jay Aparecida Rodriguez, who met Laura at her hotel in Le Marais in Paris. “She invited me to come and see her at her hotel and she opened the door with a book about Jim Morrisson in her hands and a cigar in her mouth. She was here for the Fashion Week and so was I. We talked for a while and with her natural and smart state of mind and body it was an easy tasks to start shooting in the room already as well as outside at the Place Des Vosges. To shoot sort of unplanned with a lightweight camera, medium format and 35 mm, and using the natural, available light has always excited me for its aesthetic reasons.” Jay also considers the rejection of an overly determinate technique and academic notions of composition an interesting aspect and the outcome more immediate and engaging for the viewer. All wardrobe is by l’école des femmes. J´adore!
