It`s been almost 15 years ago now, I took photos with a girl named Anne. When we went through her closet before our home shooting, my eyes caught a blue/pink down jacket from the Southpole brand. I asked her to wear it on the shooting and she agreed. Being in love with the photos, I tried to find such a jacket for my own collection. When another shooting with the lovely girl Nicole came up, I leveraged my knowledge and asked Anne to borrow the jacket to me. Luckily she agreed and so Nicole looked awesome in that – see the results here https://www.spandexplanet.com/downloads/southpole-downjacket/
Browsing Southpole down jackets for years through eBay sites, I bought this just pink one and the green/beige one. Without ever finding the real one I was looking for, time passed by. Years later, I had already moved to another city, the object of desire finally found me. When grabbing through clothes in a local vintage store, a little piece of pink fabric glimpsed out in a corner. With a flash of inspiration, I asked my girlfriend to have a look if she finds something interesting there and she returned with that Pink/Blue Southpole jacket I was looking for for ages.
Sentimentally looking at these photos now, I remember the old story again. Now I own 3 different Southpole down jackets from the golden age and I used them in different shootings. These two here were the start of my collection and I still love them.
