Jasmine Deporta: Sofa Safari

Work / Fashion

We love these photographs of girls whose outfits match their sofas

Jasmine Deporta’s new project is created in the spirit of those hungover Sundays when you lie in so long that you start to blend in with your soft furnishings, and not even the sound of the kettle boiling or the usually-irresistible presence of a packet of Hobnobs in the kitchen cupboard can tempt you from your cushiony couch.

Jasmine is a photographer with an infallible eye for an unusual fashion editorial – we last featured her for her photo shoot in an orchid greenhouse last autumn – and the latest one sees her unleash a troop of models into a warehouse full of second-hand sofas, to which they then co-ordinate their outfits. While the images in Sofa Safari are similarly pretty, the concept is brilliant and weird enough to justify them. There’s a lot to be said for the unserious, and we’re huge fans of Jasmine’s take on it.
