I’ve always enjoyed shooting both menswear and womenswear and on this shoot in New York I needed a few discreet but sophisticated watches to set off the granite colour palette and to contrast the wool of the jackets and coats we were interested in. It was freezing and we had to be fast, asking the guards to deliver straight to the shoot as we moved around the city.
While the watches are more of a canvas for the fashion in this shoot, I really enjoyed calling them in as New York has some excellent watch stores to choose from. I have to say, Bovet are always a favourite….
