    freaking love it when you guys do photo shoots.
    i think this has to be my favourite ever, but then i think of all the others and think ‘NOOO THEY ARE ALL TOO GOOD TO PICK A FAVOURITE!!!!!’
    but honestly, this one is AMAZARINO!!:0

  • Emmy June 20th, 2012 3:13 PM

    I love the dreamy pastel colors and all of the hair styles. I love Rookie shoots because they are always so different!

  • Libby June 20th, 2012 3:16 PM

    This is gorgeous.
    Also, Saltdean Lido! My grandparents live in Ovingdean; next time I visit we are totally stopping by Saltdean for dreamy photog. purposes.

  • katrinaexplainsitall June 20th, 2012 3:21 PM

    The hair clips in 24 are so perfect! Also, really digging the bubble picture ~

  • lilylaughs June 20th, 2012 3:22 PM

    this is amazing. i’m especially obsessed with photos number 10 and 13, but they all rock.

  • missblack June 20th, 2012 3:27 PM

    Hahahaha I love how it’s called a lido.

    Also where I am it’s like a million degrees right now and I am hating it but these photos make me not hate summer so much. In fact they make summer seem kind of awesome.


  • fairy_grrrl June 20th, 2012 3:51 PM

    These pictures are so pretty, I just want to hang them up everywhere, 10 is one of my favorites.

  • Elizabete June 20th, 2012 3:53 PM

    I can only join to others and say : B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L

    All girls look amazing, but Maeve steals my heart, those hair! Also makes me want to have Ashish Yin&Yang shirt…

  • Maialuna June 20th, 2012 9:36 PM

    …How are they not puddles of flesh on the ground? Too hot to dress like that. :C

  • MinaM8 June 20th, 2012 10:21 PM

    omg, this is so amazing and dreamy! it’s like a trip to another world or something. I love all the details in the outfits and the place where this was taken is perfect.

    Where can I find a site for Pick N Mix?

  • y0 June 21st, 2012 1:14 AM

  • ivoire June 21st, 2012 2:02 AM

    BEST SHOOT EVER. I shall save up to buy a-morir sunnies and a sretsis skirt.

    • ivoire June 21st, 2012 7:07 AM

      Guys, does this amazing Pick n Mix store have a site? I AM AWFULLY DESPERATE RN.

  • Lea June 21st, 2012 2:30 AM

    I love how Rookie fashion shoots always have this kind of undescriptible nostalgic feeling. Here, for me it captures the sad-mellow feeling of summer holidays that you always get in random moments, by the pool, lying on the beach… But the special thing is those pastel/bright colors worn by the models, which makes it more like a daydream on acid.
    The place is just perfect! And the models are all so beautiful. They look like dreamy creatures.
    Just wanted to say, this is so damn great.
    Thanks for ravishing our eyes Eleanor :p

  • Helena June 21st, 2012 2:33 AM

    This so awsome i’ve looked at the pictures like five times!!!! I love this sooo much!!

    Btw tiny correction: Roberto Piqueras with and A instead of an E.

  • Wren June 21st, 2012 6:55 AM

    these are all really nice, but i looked up ashish bc i thought the yin and yang dress was amazing, and their SALE stuff was like $500!!! no way can i afford that. great inspiration, though.
