Atlanta de Cadenet is the new face (or should we say body) of Tezenis, posing on fake ice cream cones and marshmallows in pastel lace underwear. But the really interesting thing about this underwear campaign is that it was photographed by her mother, Amanda de Cadenet. Cool, huh?
In case you don't know this DJ and front row veteran, 21-year-old Atlanta is the daughter of Amanda de Cadenet and Duran Duran bassist John Taylor. When asked to describe the thrill of being photographed by her mother, Atlanta said: 'The thrill of being photographed by mom. Thrilling… Thrill is a strong word. (laughs) I think it was more comfortable actually. It was really great to have her photograph me for this campaign you know. There’s nobody that I’d rather have photograph me in my underwear than my mom. I don’t trust anybody more than I trust her and it made for a really good, comfortable collaboration which I think is really important when it comes to shoots.'
In the campaign the front row darling wears denim cut offs, floral jeans, dungarees and waistcoats, with the cute pastel lingerie. As for Atlanta's favourite pieces from the collection she reveals: 'I really loved the blue bra. The neon, the bright blue and the matching underwear. I thought the pink was really great. The onesie, the lace onesie was really cool. I love the colors. I’m all about a bright bra.'
So what is the best fashion lesson her mother has taught her? Atlanta says: 'She’s taught me so much. I don’t even know if I could pick one. She’s always allowed me to grow my own way and the freedom to discover what it is I want to do on my own and also how important it is to not just be pretty, but smart, kind, and loving as well.'
As for her first memory of her Mum, Atlanta says: 'The first childhood memory I have of my mom… that’s tough. There are so many. I kind of always remember her taking photos of me. I feel like, you know, that was always a big part of my life growing up. Being a kid, what that involved. I also remember her wearing a lot of red boots and ripped t-shirts.'
