I first met Kristina from Bon Tot last year when I photographed her for a feature in Stylist magazine. Kristina, who already had a massive following of devoted customers online had recently set up her store in Edinburgh with her husband Graham. Using Graham’s ingenious architectural skills, they fitted out the shop using cardboard to build the shelves – it looks pretty amazing! The Bon Tot ethos is all about modern, ethical, gender-nuetral kids fashion. The real emphasis here is on on style though and let me tell you, they have bags of it.
I was delighted when they asked me to shoot their look book this year, if a little daunted. Fourteen toddler models, a dog and Scottish weather; what could go wrong? On the day things went well, there were minimal tears (from the kids anyway) and Kristina and her team of stylists and assistants made sure everything went to plan. We shot three different scenes, Soft Focus, Young & Restless and Bored Editorial. You can see a small selection of the images below and if you’d like to see the look book in all it’s glory click here.
