Great to be back in China especialy to meet Tang Wei again. We did a nice shoot for Pantene lots of chats, laughs and positive energy! It must also have to do with Hong Kong. Did you know that HK means Harbor of Perfumes in chinese? (Not sure the word perfume is well chosen anymore!)
Tang Wei departed to LA where she is making a new film and I flew back to Paris just for a change of suitcase as the same evening I was off again. The days are very long right now in Europe and even more in North England where I flew. Arriving there I had a surrealistic drive through the most picturesque rolling fields of english country side. After the chaotic urbanism of modern HK and my jet lag I did feel like I had arrived in paradise.
Here is the view I had from my cute little country hotel at the foot of Haddon Hall, my new location for the next days shoot with Vogue.
I wish I could have stayed longer in Robin Hood territory but I had to fly to London to meet with Rankin and Eva Herzigova. The following day we worked perfectly, doing beautiful pictures and lots of covers. Before whizzing off to the airport I did a quick “do” for Eva as she was attending that evening the Elton John’s White Tiara Ball.
That was my Super Week with lots of action and surrounded by people I really care about.
