It’s finally here: the first editorial piece conceptualized, art directed and styled by me. I could not be any happier with the results or the process.
I explained earlier on social media why I wanted to start shooting unique content for my site. I also have been really lucky to meet a bunch of like minded creatives and this month we were hosted by the newly opened St. Regis hotel where we had the opportunity to (with the marble magnificence for a backdrop) shoot a series of trends that I find worthy of highlighting. I will go deeper into individual trends from next month onwards but for now I wanted to start this part of the blog by focusing on timeless concepts I rely a lot on when styling / working with personal clients / dressing myself.
As I have a very soft spot for the heritage of the St. Regis and the historical legacy that it carries (and with age I have begun to appreciate learning in depth about brands I work with and understanding their ethos), a legacy thats well mirrored in the interiors, I have chosen to name the editorial just that: The Legacy.
The tonal dressing: coat 3.1 Phillip Lim; top ACNE; trousers Paul & Joe. All Boutique 1. Shoes Giuseppe Zanotti.
The double stripe: pants Rag & Bone, sweater Theory. Both Boutique 1. Shoes Giuseppe Zanotti.
The GUCCI: (because since the new creative direction of Allesandro Michele it’s a power house): pants and shoes GUCCI, sweater Raoul at Boutique 1.
The daytime metallics: dress and shoes Stine Goya from DULAAB.
One more GUCCI because it’s just so good.
The statement outerwear: coat from Sakspotts at DULAAB.
