    'Sweetie', LOVE, Autumn/Winter 2014, cover

  • Catalogue Essay

    The idiosyncratic vision of Liz Collins comes to life in this tantalising and playful photograph of Cara Delevingne taken for the Fall/Winter 2014-15 issue of LOVE. As the opening image of the editorial ‘Sweetie’, a wilful, half-naked Cara wears a bubble-gum pink wig and pale blue leather boots, while straddling a giant Drumstick lolly amid a sea of candy-coloured balls, bags and lollipops. Collins began her career in 1990s London, working for British magazines Dazed & Confused and The Face at a time when only a few women photographers were active in fashion. She works across the spectrum of the international fashion press, including Vogue, LOVE, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar, and her commercial clients include Guerlain, Givenchy, YSL and Chloé. Collins’s work has been exhibited internationally, including New York’s MoMA and New Museum.
