UNLOCK YOUR WISH

webc_KTR_0063

 

I am extremely honored to share with you guys today the second part of our collaboration with Cartier, and as you can see the theme of this shooting is very, very different from the first one we did which was all about a very light, colorful ambiance. Here, we are exploring the darker, more mysterious side of the Amulette’s story. You must all recognize the actual place where James and I created these images. The Pont Des Arts in Paris, is an iconic bridge where people from all over the world come in order to lock a wish or a promise. A promise of love, a promise of happiness, a hope for a dream. It can be a bond between two lovers, or an unbreakable lock, symbolizing a love between two family members. I guess, this all reminds you of something… now doesn’t it?

The whole concept’s of Cartier’s Amulette is exactly about this, locking up one of your deepest emotions, deepest feelings in the necklace. That way it will follow you all day, reminding you of your inner values, of a dream or of this dear person who might have gifted the jewel to you. I personally like to thing that I locked up a precious wish of mine in it, and by keeping the necklace close to my heart, day by day, I feel like it gives me strength, reminding me to go further and further, and to never stop believing. Now I feel like I simply can’t take it off.

All these dreams, all these love bonds, all these names scribbled on golden lock pads… I was so impressed to see the enormous quantity of locks on that bridge. But that’s just the way we are : dreams make us live. They make us feel alive, they give us a purpose, a goal, hope. Dreaming is a universal language across the world. Without dreaming, where is the fantasy and the magic in life? There’s nothing more beautiful than aiming high, being daring, and dreaming big.

These images might also remind you a recent movie. Yes! You guessed well. This look is also inspired by the new movie Maleficent which I by the way absolutely loved. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, please go. I don’t want to give away any spoilers but the message is wonderful and unique. The fashion is just as gorgeous as well and definitely made we want to rock some dark feathers.

We all need some fantasy in our lives. So go ahead, and make a wish, but remember, even the most beautiful necklace won’t help you make it come true, it can remind you of something very important on a daily basis and be your lucky charm, but it’s you who has the power in your hands to make any of your craziest wishes come to life. So go ahead and dare to dream.

Powerful message! I really liked this post, it kind of shows a different side of you and obviously a darker mood throughout the pictures and it’s really interesting to see.

Wow! Love this darker, unusual look on you! The dress and the feather are so pretty! This inspirational text about dreaming is really good and so true!

Dear Kristina,

for usual, I do not comment on posts or subscribe every single picture in Instagram or so. But this time, I felt it was right. Thank you so much for the beauty you bring in each and every day of mine, and, I am quite sure, to everyone else`s reading your blog. I really enjoyed this pictures – although they are so different from your usual ones (I love their elegance and classiness, by the way). And – and this is what really made my writing this comment – Thanks a lot for your encouraging words. I hope I will make my dream come true one day, just like you did and do.

Sending you lots of love and the best wishes from Germany,
A.-M.

SPECTACULAR!

I love this second chapter maybe even more than the first one, bacause it’s Paris in the background (I love that city)!! And talking about the jewel itself, I still don’t know, if I ever get the chance to have one, which color I would like: black or white? Ahah question of a lifetime :)
Anyway, I have a personal question for you Kristina: how do you manage to shoot pictures right in the middle of a bridge, surrounded by people who are clearly watching you and what you’re doing? Don’t you feel observed and embarassed? Maybe it’s just me, or the fact that I live in a small city here in Italy (yet beautiful and magical: Lucca, you should definitely come!) because in Paris they’re used to photoshoots and models running down the streets! So, if you have any advice on how to get through this “fear of the camera” please let me know some of your tricks! ;)

Très jolie cette série de photos. Dommage que certaines images soient un peu floutees. Sûrement dû à photoshop mais c’est dommage. Sinon j’adore ta robe et ton petit gilet en plumes.

I really agree with the sentence you wrote: ‘There’s nothing more beautiful than aiming high, being daring, and dreaming big.’.
Also I always wanted to visit this place, but never had the time. Hope I will soon.
The outfit is nice and the jacket is reminding me of the TV serials ‘Game of Thrones’.

Perfect location and stunning pictures! Love it! Make me wanna some of these pieces :)

I have always followed you on Instagram, but lately I’ve actually been checking out your blog posts as well. The photography has improved greatly and your style has evolved as well. I find you so humble and inspiring, but there quite a few grammar/spelling errors. Maybe have someone proof-read beforehand. Other than that, I completely adore you.

AMAZING! The pictures look so magic, like jumped out of a fairytale. Seriously: The first thought that came to me when looking at them – even before I had read the text – was the movie Maleficent! You really managed to capture the ambiance in the pictures <3
