I’ve been in London the past few days but excited to be heading to (hopefully), sunny Milan tomorrow! The first show of the week will be Gucci which I have my fingers crossed will be another great collection. Stay tuned!
The other week at the office I hung off the side of the Panerai boat Eilean shooting the Panerai Vele d’Epoca Classic Boat Challenge! I’m no daredevil and I really thought I would just stay in a safe zone and do a few shots but once the race started I really lost myself to the moment and ended up in positions I never would have found myself in if it weren’t for the camera. It was an amazing experience and a few weeks later I still find myself thinking about how much fun the racing was. I didn’t know much about the Vele d’Epoca
I love the look of these printed shirts that I saw during the last Men’s Fashion Week in Milan. The print is important but equally important is the scale of the print!
Wandering around an 80,000-square-foot warehouse in Bushwick certainly doesn’t sound like the official start of New York Fashion Week, but these days, the style set do things a little differently. On Thursday night, Refinery29 launched their 2nd annual 29Rooms installation, an interactive playground-slash-party that brought together innovators in the fields of fashion, art, and technology in order to create a funhouse with purpose – not to mention infinite moments for the ‘gram. This year’s theme, “Powered by People,” seemed more relevant than ever in the current landscape of not just fashion, but society as a whole.
I love the surprises my job brings! I was wandering around Cortona and I saw this very chic lady in the blue dress. I watched her for a little while as I considered whether to ask her if I could shoot a portrait of her. As I mentioned before older ladies refuse my request so much that I’ve basically given up and I was going to pass on this shot but then she looked at me and we smiled at each other and then the lady popped her head out of the second floor window and then I knew I HAD to take the shot! I raised my camera and motioned my intent and to my surprise she not only agreed but even gave me a little attitude-y pose!!! It gets tiresome getting turned down by older women so much but when it does all work it can be a real treasure
I’ve spent the past few days visiting small towns and taking backroads for as much of the drive as possible, on my way back up to Milan. I’m always tempted to take the main highways but driving this way through Italy is so romantic and beautiful (even if it takes double the time!)
NYFW starts this week which means getting ready for a full four weeks of Fashion shows!! (Better start packing now!) First New York, then London, then onto Milan and then finally, Paris. P.S. Thank you to Maserati for the very chic rides during the last round of shows in Milan.
