Shooting this story for Air France’s Madame magazine was a matter of extreme restraint.
I spent an entire day in Paris up close to some of the most gorgeous accessories of the season. But the question is, which piece did I love the most? Is it the Louis Vuitton ‘Vivienne’ bag, Lanvin’s ‘cool’ ring I saw on every ‘it’ girl during the SS14 shows, the Repossi rings, the Leopard print coat I wanted to rip right off Ashleigh Good as she sauntered down the Burberry Runway in February; or was it the Hot Pink Fendi bag that would keep me warm at night? My credit card had to be confiscated! I hope you like looking at the pictures as much as I loved shooting them. xx

My collection CANDIDATE by Candice Lake was influenced by the street style trends I was shooting around the world; with the aim to make these incredible trends – seen on editors, models and bloggers around the world – accessible.

I am so excited to announce that I have designed my first solo range – CANDIDATE by Candice Lake.
I wanted to create a collection with that was influenced by the street style trends I was shooting around the world; and make these incredible trends – seen on editors, models and bloggers around the world – accessible. It’s been a wonderful experience designing a collection that was greatly inspired by – and created for – the women I see and photograph all over the world.
What also inspires me is when a girl pushes and experiments with new trends whilst always staying true to her own style. This combination mixed in with a lot of confidence is mesmerising and this is what really drove my debut solo collection, as well as elements from my favourite cities. The collection is polished, although it has a sense of ease and fun that I think really represents Australian style and the girls I see and photograph on the streets that so inspire me.
Made up of pieces that can be worn individually or styled back together to create a complete look, CANDIDATE includes a reversible bomber jacket, pencil skirt, 60s inspired mini dress, crop top, boyfriend shirts, vegan leather petal skirt and pants, flippy shorts, photo print jumper and tee, felt fedora and a logo cap in a range of exclusive prints including digital floral and leopard with neon highlights.
The collection is stocked in General Pants right across Australia and can be purchased online Internationally here.
Each day, over the next 7 days, I will be posting a campaign image from the collection I shot in London, with street style images showing you “how to wear the trend”… taking inspiration from some of my favourite street style girls I have shot all over the world that have greatly influenced this collection, including Olivia Palermo, ELin Kling, Karlie Kloss, Hanne Gaby, Poppy Delevingne, Giovanna Battaglia and Elena Perminova.
I hope you like CANDIDATE and please let me know what pieces/ trends are your favourite!!

I am SO excited to share with you my collaborations with TRESemme haircare as one of their new faces and Style Insiders featured in this month’s US Vogue.
I flew to NY back in July to shoot the campaign for TRESemme and to film some video which was very super exciting as I learnt a lot about getting the perfect beachy wave even when I am miles away from any sign of waves!
Check out this video below to see how to get the ultimate beach curl and also to see behind the scenes from our photo shoot.
The second part of this collaboration was as TRESemme’s Style Insider to chase down some of the hottest hair trends at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week on the street. I found so many incredible hair trends from SERIOUS Hair Bling to versatile ponytails; bobs and bangs (fringes); and braids, braids, everywhere! You can see all my videos on the TRESemme Youtube Channel.
Although as you have probably guessed, my favourite trend this season is curls! Now the question is: Do girls with curls have more fun?
Check out the video below .
Thanks so much to the entire team at TRESemme for having me on this incredibly fun project! x
