Lela Jacobs Riders on the Storm Winter 2013 Collection Show

Last Thursday night, right on dusk, Lela Jacobs showed her Winter 2013 collection entitled, "Riders on the Storm," to a refreshing Auckland audience down at Silo7, Wynyard Quarters. Set against a breath taking backdrop of the sun going down on the Auckland harbour, models walked in and around the Silo7 structure, layered in wool, silks and leather in palettes of timber, black and white. Lela's "Riders" walking to the sound of live Spanish guitar, played by Alexndre Champagnat, really set the tone and ambience of the evening.

Before the show started, Lela Jacobs also shared her collection's campaign film made by artist, Meighan Ellis. The music for this film was exclusively created by Sam Norton and Adam Handley. You can view the short film below.
