Kim is a very dear friend of mine and a continuous muse. Her whole apparel philosophy is creative but not crazy, mixing the high end with the low brow. Which is kind of how she is in real life, we’ll chow down on philly steaks one day and then only sip $24 cocktails the next. She is an advocate of mixing it up – vintage YSL with Topshop, little boy blazers with beautiful feminine silk pants. Constantly changing it up, keeping everything fresh. Here is the interview that L Magazine did with her from the series The Fashionable Bystander shot by Crystal Gwyn. Who I talked about here.
I’m a little challenged as to how to incorporate this video so it links automatically…so in the mean time click HERE to hear her fashion formula.
To quote Ronald Reagan “Surround yourself with the best people you can find…”- once again I totally lucked out with a fantastic team to work on my Fall/Winter Lookbook shoot. Much much love to all that worked on it!! Shot in my hood of Williamsburg, imagine if you will the song below playing as this shoot is going down.
A round of applause for the super talented:
photographer – Adrian Barry
Models – Kimberly Johnson & Ruben Sanz Ramiro

Geeeeeeeet ready, this is the first photo in of ‘Finders Keepers’
This collection I found hardware/zippers/thread/bindings all in places I hadn’t considered before. Finding bindings in a shoe repair outlet, thread from an old-school tailor on the L.E.S. and swivel snaps meant for horse leads. It’s all about opening your eyes and looking deep into places unknown.
Shot in Williamsburg with a salute to NY, my original catalyst for starting the whole line with people who continue to be my muse. As you’ll see each piece has a christian name – these are for my friends who unknowingly provide me with inspiration. Get ready to meet Laura/Katie/Jessica and Ramiro.

We shot F/W out and about in Williamsburg today and I feel so lucky to have such a great wealth of talented friends who for a dozen oysters, truffle fries and several beers (mmm Five Leaves) will help me out. A big big thank you and I can’t wait to show you how it came out.
In between holding reflectors and lenses I played around with my camera.
