STELA 9 SS 2012 Lookbook

A few weeks ago our team flew down to Guatemala for about a week to shoot our Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook and to meet with our Guatemalan artisans.  While there, we traveled through church ruins, ran across cobblestone streets, jumped into rainbow color chicken buses and climbed up fantastical tree houses.  

When piecing together this collection we looked at old archaeological journals and sketches for inspirtation.  Because all of our textiles are handloomed and the leather is handworked we wanted this lookbook to have that same organic feel.  

Thank you to our good friend, Joshua Ballinger for shooting the images and creating a beautiful video for us (coming soon) and to our model, Kelly Jacobik, for beautifully representing our aesthetic.  Also, thank you to Earth Lodge for providing us with tree houses, green fields, delicious meals and many laughs. 

I hope you enjoy our journey.
