FRAME has collaborated with the iconic Carlyle hotel in this brand new collection of sweatshirts and baseball caps! It’s exciting to see our shoot for this project featured on VOGUE for the debut! Celebrating old school New York, Dylana and I took these essentials uptown. The city feels more alive right now and it’s inspiring me to revisit jazz nights at the Carlyle, some of my fondest memories.
Vogue Japan had me put together an interesting “sheer” look for their latest February issue. I immediately nixed out your typical sheer maxi skirt, or sheered silk blouse. Boring. Instead, I pulled out this super oversized DKNY bomber jacket from my DKNY campaign shoot with the brand about 2 years ago (boy does time fly). This is one piece I got to keep from the set of our photoshoot. DKNY always masters cool, downtown urban attire. So I took this piece from the back of my closet and completely reinvented it. Leave it to me to throw a sheer oversize bomber over a silver dress, fishnets, and a good pair of Valentinos. Topped off with a printed scarf by Etro. It’s funny how many times I can style one piece in my closet in so many different ways. I’m a total minimalist in that way. Less is more when it comes to everything in my life. Home decor. My wardrobe. The products I use on my skin and body. But my outfits a complete mash up of craziness that somehow ends up working. What do you think will be a comeback trend this NYFW? I know for a fact I will be hiding under a giant statement coat bouncing from show to show with a pack of Emergen-C to go. Can’t be too safe in the front row.
