My Work | Marie Claire | Space Age

Ever since Nicolas Ghesquiere imparted ideas of  “taking a weird trip” and the infinite possibilities of what lies ahead, “the beyond” as a concept has occupied a certain spot in fashion’s collective consciousness.

I’ll be the first to admit that I was very into that Christopher Kane solar system collection from resort 2011, but my tastes quickly soured as members of the bridge-and-tunnel crowd showed up wearing the look stretched over their cellulite-ridden asses all over the meatpacking district. From then on I tried to avoid anything too cosmic from integrating into my closet. (Yet another trend taken from me by the bottle wielding club girls of Avenue and 1Oak… RIP high-low hems, flower crowns, and a personal favorite: underwear as pants. Shame. Shame.)  

In the age of Miley-bots roaming the streets in crop tops and knickers, it’s an almost provocative notion to want to keep things under-wrap. Luxury, ultimately about quality and consistency, is often forgone for the admittedly cheaper but shorter reaching options offered by fast fashion.

Working on this editorial, which we shot over the summer for Marie Claire’s September issue, was effectively a compelling argument for the renaissance of outer space influences in their newest incarnation. Ironically the clothes helped me realize how modern and of-the-moment the futuristic is right now. A well-constructed jacket from Celine or a great pair of tailored pants from Bottega Veneta may be an investment, but the pay off is ultimately greater as it can both literally and figuratively, stand the test of time.

I remember seeing - and loving - this editorial in the September issue. Yes, the future is now!

Couldn't agree with you more about the concept of luxury and subtlety. I always find the discrepancy between people's different taste levels to be mind-boggling at times, but then again, what kind of world would it be without those nuances?

I'm curious, what do you do at MC - you didn't mention your name in the credits? Thanks for finding me, i'm loving your blog.

Hahaahhaha such a fresh and funny take on this collection! Isn't it crazy how one rotten apple spoils the bunch! It all comes down to HOW you rock it I think. Keep the trends minimal and the good designs transition through another season. Can't wait to see street style with these futuristic looks!

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you back for my top organizing tips from the pro!

Peace. Love. LOL!
