We’re dreaming of travel and so we’ve taken to a gorgeous European styled estate in the rolling hills of Australian’s countryside to shoot our newest Autumn/Winter collection. The ‘Zola’ collection features beautifully curated knit pieces and jumpers that will keep you warm and cosy in the cooler months. Classic Apéro tees and fashion pieces make for a perfect versatile wardrobe you can dress up or dress down depending on the occasion. 

The villa's sandalwood columns, roman arches and Moroccan inspired furnishings were the perfect backdrop to these neutral toned garments. Shades of olive green, creams, tans and beiges contrasted against whites and blacks made for a perfect winter palette for the creative team to explore. 

Models, Ebony and Christie embodied the chic Apéro woman as they graced the outdoor greenery and weathered timber flooring, posing in our latest garments. We’re keen to take you behind the scenes to show you what this shoot looked like in the moment. The hair and makeup, the model conversations and the shoot location inspiring our creativity is all here. Ebony and Christie share their favourite winter meals, their current podcast and music loves as well as their favourite fashion go-tos in the cooler months.  

We hope the exotic charisma and charm of this location and the Zola collection not only inspires you to continue dreaming of that European escape, but makes you feel as though you are already there. Wrap yourself up in our knits and jumpers this autumn/winter and don’t forget to tag @aperolabel on Instagram so we can see how you have styled your fit.
