an exercise in minimalism




I did a quick shoot last week, a very small wardrobe pull, mostly designer vintage, we shot everything...beautifully. My design sensibility has always been deeply rooted in minimalism. On this shoot, I got to visit some old friends. Yohji Yamamoto, vintage Norma Kamali, Thierry Mugler, Herve Leger, Jil Sander. Some of my favorite designers from the past. Besides getting used to working with another guy named Alvin, it was a great shoot. Trusted makeup artist Erin Skipley did a great job with hair and makeup. Rachel of SMG, a promising young model who has the bone structure of a steely 50's French model, also made the clothing sing. I'll be posting some of the images soon on my website.
