Byron Bay based, worldwide bound… as is the life for Ash Keillah (@thefriendlypirate) and Stacey Allen (@staceyyallen), all round legends and some of our favourite faces from SurfStitch’s #BringOnTheWeekend summer campaign.
Couple goals to say the least, their ecstatic attitudes and thirst for life truly embodies the Saturday state of mind we all love to live by so when the two jumped on board to help capture our favourite summer styles on a Venice Beach backdrop, we were over the moon.
After several days shooting, that time came when it was a wrap, though wanted to shine more of a light on this incredible duo. While celebrating the week's success, we pinched two minutes to learn more about their favourite picks for summer and their favourite locations while in LA, all of course while finding out more of who they are and what they are about.
Scroll down and get to know Ash Keillah and Stacey Allen!
Thanks for catching up guys! You’re both the bright faces of SurfStitch new summer campaign, tell us all about shooting for it!
Shooting the campaign was a total blast! We had such a good crew it really felt like a summer holiday.
Can you give us a rundown of who you are and what you are about? Who are Ash Keillah and Stacey Allen?
Stacey: We’re a newly engaged couple who love to cook, travel and spend 99% of our time at the beach! Ash is a keen surfer and that suits me just fine as I love nothing more than a good sun tanning sesh.
What was your favourite location around Venice and why?
Our favourite location in Venice was the rooftop of our Airbnb! It overlooked the board walk and was a perfect place to hang out as a group and take in all that Venice has to offer with our new besties!
What about the other crew? From the shots it seemed like you all got along so well!
We couldn’t have asked for a better crew with this campaign. We all got along so well and the whole shoot was just seamless. Ainsley our stylist showed us a thing or two on the makeshift dance floor.
Tell us your favourite outfit/style and why?
Stacey: My favourite outfit was definitely the yellow strapless Zulu & Zephyr dress with the Lack Of Colour hat - this is something I would wear on a day to day basis.
Ash: Anything Rhythm stood out for me - their stuff is epic!
What’re your must have items for the summer ahead?
Stacey: A Lack Of Colour hat is a must! That and sunscreen - super important when you spend as much time in the sun as we do!
Ash: Sunscreen because I’m a pink person and a Billy Bones hat for sure!
Tell us how you both and the rest of the crew wrapped up the campaign shoot? Surely there was celebrating after so much busy days out and about!
Wrapping up the shoot with everyone was so fun!! Pizza, beer and rosé up on the rooftop balcony - what more could you want!
