Aaron Okayama c/o ALYSSA PIZER MGMT photographed the eye-catching motifs with US swim stars Caeleb Dressel and Abbey Weitzeil, who will compete for the USA at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Swimming is among the oldest Olympic sports and promises many exciting competitions again at the 2021 Olympics. Heats will take place in pools and in the open water of the Tokyo Bay. These are also the first Olympic Games to be held after the Phelps era, but one of his former teammates is ready to try and break the megastar’s record of winning medals : His name is Caeleb Dressel. The master sprinter had six chances at gold this year. In the 50m and 100m freestyle and the 100m butterfly, he is considered the one to bet on.
“I’ve been lucky to have this view of some of the world’s fastest swimmers,” says the sport & lifestyle photographer from Los Angeles. “I pride my work in capturing authenticity. Whether it’s staged or planned, my photography feels persuasive, genuine, and aspiring. I believe my style of photography draws emotion and helps brands to resonate with consumers, and consumers to relate more with the brand. Over the past several years, I’ve established a great team, enabling me to handle everything from full-size productions to shooting smaller, more intimate jobs.”
Among Aaron’s clients are brands such as OAKLEY, Ralph Lauren, Sperry, Polo, Kenneth Cole Reaction, Lucky Brand, Trina Turk, Nanette Lepore Swim, The Bikini Lab, Green Dragon, Manhattan Beachwear, and many more. Further information is available directly from Alyssa, who also supports and realizes productions in Los Angeles and beyond with her team.

Coral Chen Chung is an entrepreneur, former strategy consultant and tech executive – as well as the founder and CEO of the trendy handbag label SENREVE : “SENREVE was born when, as rising female professionals, we found ourselves in search of the perfect luxury handbag. We were seeking something that was beautiful and feminine, but also versatile enough to keep up with our everyday lives. However, we discovered most designer bags didn’t fully consider all of these needs, so we decided to take matters into our own hands. With SENREVE, women are now free to go about their day with ease, empowered to better live their busy, modern lifestyles. From phone and wallet to laptop and lipstick – finally a beautiful bag that knows how to multitask.”
SENREVE is derived from the French words for “sense” and “dream” and is built upon the coexistence of dichotomies: everyday and fantasy, tradition and innovation, design and versatility – creating an elevated experience that defies concessions. The company has raised over €22.00M in funding from leading venture capital and growth capital investors and was one of The Lead’s Foremost 50 leading digitally native brands that are reinventing and redefining the future of the fashion and retail industry.
“What we’ve created is a seamless blend of elegant design, impeccable quality and innovative construction. Our bags are sleek, structured and designed to carry your life in style. They’re also lightweight, travel-friendly and just as appropriate for a business meeting as they are for happy hour or brunch. Our bags are made from 100% genuine full-grain Italian leather with a pebbled finish. Each bag is expertly handcrafted to look and feel soft and supple, structured yet lightweight, and durable and water-resistant. We’ve also invested heavily in a top-quality micro-suede lining that most other brands consider too expensive to use. For us, a top-quality product begins with exceptional raw materials.
Artisans who craft SENREVE bags today have worked with top luxury brands for over 50 years. They employ a difficult inside-out technique that only a few workshops in the world are skilled in. We believe combining this master craftsmanship with design and innovation sets SENREVE apart as the future of luxury.”

For RALPH LAUREN, Colette de BAROS c/o ALYSSA PIZER MANAGEMENT photographed singer, actress, entertainer and brand ambassador Janelle Monáe for the presentation of the Spring ‘21 collection at the Ralph Lauren Boutique in Beverly Hills.
We gladly quote VOGUE : “Whether it’s taking over Central Park for his 50th anniversary or staging a one-night-only Art Deco nightclub extravaganza, if there’s one thing Ralph Lauren knows, it’s how to put on a show – even when, as with his spring 2021 collection which debuted this evening, there’s no live audience.
To mark the occasion, Lauren enlisted the help of his regular collaborator Janelle Monáe for a black & white film performance in the magnificent setting of his Beverly Hills store, here transformed into a smoky speakeasy while Monáe does her best Frank Sinatra in a double-breasted tuxedo and sings a swoon-worthy rendition of “All or Nothing at All.” Over the past few years, Janelle Monáe has become one of Ralph Lauren’s most visible ambassadors, whether performing at the fall 2019 Art Deco nightclub spectacular, or wearing a breathtaking hooded gown covered in crystals to last year’s Oscars.”
Colette : “Was so thrilled to be able to be a part of this! Janelle Monáe for Ralph Lauren! Thank you @maiajames & @janellemonae!” GoSee : vogue.com//janelle-monae-ralph-lauren-performance
