Take a moment to consider our Antipodean friends, for it is they who are gearing up for the summer months as the much of the Northern Hemisphere prepares for a seemingly interminable period of cold and darkness. The folks at Australian retail clothier Country Road are well and truly up for summer and have duly produced a campaign starring none other than Hedvig Palm and Esther Heesch. The pair of Northern European beauties can be seen in a short campaign film luxuriating around in and around a summer pool set to the dreamy song “It’s OK with Me” by Brisbane shoegazers The Good Sports. The combination of the song, Country Road’s stylish summer collection, and of course the sun-drenched allure of Hedvig and Esther is enough to compel even the most avid winter sport enthusiast to ring up the travel agent in order to book a one-way ticket to Australia.
