EXCLUSIVE- Behind The Scenes // Collectif Clothing Autumn/Winter 2017 [CC]


J: Guess where we are today! J: Ooo. Ahhh. J: Look at these clothes. J: Yes, today we are doing a shoot. J: Well, “we” – I say we – you’re not actually in it. C: No. I’m just gonna go round with a camera. C: Capture a little bit behind the scenes. J: I’m doing a shoot for Collectif! Which is incredibly exciting, because I wear many of those clothes and sometimes feel like I am a walking billboard anyway. C: You are! Yeah. J: We go into the Collectif shop and people are like, “Oh, that’s a really nice dress, where did you get it?” C: Yeah, you’re like a live mannequin. J: “Here.” J: Wait, that’s just a model. J: A live mannequin is a model. C: Oh, yeah. C: Sorry, didn’t mean to dumb down the profession there. C: No, I meant in the shop. You know, you’re just standing there like, “…” J: Yes, yes. C: That’s what I meant. J: Posing in the shop. C: Yeah. J: Yeah. J: I’m very excited to try on all of these beautiful clothes. C: I think you probably own quite a lot of this stuff already, actually. J: Oh, yeah, actually. J: Oh, look, it’s my coat! C: That’s what I saw. J: It’s my coat. There we go. J: I’m just, yeah. Really ready for this. J: Now, let’s meet someone fabulous. Hi! I’m Julia, one of the designers for Collectif, and this is the clothes we’re going to be shooting today! J: They’re gorgeous. J: My goodness. So which ones have you designed? Around half of what’s on this rail, and then some in this area, who’s our other designer, designed the other pieces. I’m excited to see beautiful models wearing our clothes. J: I have to say to you guys, it’s a dream come true. Yay! J: OK, so, getting the hair prep ready. J: Doing my own hair today. J: It’s going to be my 1940s kind of look. J: She sent me a photo saying, “Have you seen this photo on your Instagram? Do this.” J: “Do this.” J: That’s what I’m doing. J: I haven’t–I haven’t done a tutorial for this week, actually, I’ve just realised. J: So I’m gonna do that. J: Not today. At a later date. J: So it’s lunch-time. C: Yeah. J: We just finished the first part of the shoot. C: It’s really fun. J: Oh, are you liking it? C: Yeah! Everyone’s really nice J: Oh, good. C: and the studio space is really cool and I feel really comfortable going round. J: Doing a behind the scenes. C: Yeah. There was another guy filming a behind the scenes for Collectif, so I was getting some tips from him J: Yeah. C: Distracting him from his job, probably. J: Editing a video at the same time. C: Well, I haven’t really got to that point yet J: It’s what she’s meant to be doing. C: I’m multi-tasking. J: And I’m having so much fun trying on so much clothes. J: So many clothes. J: And–oh! I love Collectif so much. J: I am just deeply fan-girling. C: Yeah. J: I was so excited. C: It looks like you’re just wearing your wardrobe, but, you know, an updated version. J: Yeah! C: Lot’s of clothes J: “The updated version.” C: Some of the stuff on the rack, you actually already own. J: Yes, I do. J: Yep. I am actually just a walking billboard anyway. C: Yeah. J: So… J: I am feeling a bit like [exhales heavily] J: Like, I need to chill, because it is lunch-time C: Yeah. J: I need to just relax. I’m quite – C: That’s why I’m here. I’m meant to be telling you to relax; take it easy. C: Have a Diet Coke. J: I know. C: Maybe not five in less than one hour and then you’re like, “I’m really shaky!” J: No, I feel less shaky now. I think I was shaky because I needed lunch. C: Yeah. But you’ve taken your pills now, so that’s good. J: Yeah, I’ve taken my pills; had some sushi. C: Good. J: Feeling better. J: It’s so silly. For someone who has not much energy, I am also a very high energy person. C: Yeah, yeah. C: That’s why you need someone around like me, or Clara, to be like, “Think you should sit down for just at least five minutes.” J: “Just chill, Jessica.” J: “You don’t have to throw your all into everything.” C: You don’t have to wiggle your skirt every time you put one on. J: You don’t understand! C: You look really good in all of it. I’m really excited to see all the proper pictures. J: I know, it’s gonna be on the website and they said it might be on posters and cards in store. C: Ooo, that’ll be exciting. J: And it’s gonna be on the newsletter that goes out in emails. C: Nice. J: How cool is that? C: Very cool. J: So cool. C: Right, well, we better go relax a little bit more J: Oh, yeah. Calm. and get ready for the next–I think they’re doing a make-up change for you. Going to do some red lip– J: Yes, and also I heard that there might be… C: Oh, yeah. C: A surprise. J: It’s like my most requested video, so… C: Shh, don’t give it away. J: They’re already watching the video. C: Oh. J: Hello. I just wanted to share this jacket, because I love it. Look at this! It’s like Chanel. It’s so nice. It’s really fuzzy and warm. And I don’t think it’s actually woollen, which is good because, you know, allergic to wool like I’m allergic to the world so… It’s fluffy! Oh my god J: So, guess what? [Cheering and applause sound effects] J: What are we doing? C: Having a post-photo shoot cocktail. C: Well-deserved because obviously I was very busy. C: All day. C: Just sitting there on my arse. J: Oh, yeah. So busy. C: I don’t even know what I did. I didn’t even edit that video I was meant to edit. C: I think I was just taking–I did a lot of filming for the behind the scenes. J: The wall is very cool. J: I think I’m still high. J: On a high, not like illegal substance high but I’m probably gonna crash in…I don’t even know why I keep putting a time on it. In ten–in twenty minutes. Half an hour, maybe. J: I don’t know. I feel right now like I want to just dance and do stuff and do everything and go everywhere, and oh my God, ahh and, um, but, yeah – probably in about thirty minutes I’ll just be like, “…” C: Your eyes already look a bit like “…” C: Like, they’re semi-shut. J: My eyes are like, “waa,” apparently. They look semi-shut. J: OK.
