Frank Nathan is a recent Parsons graduate and already is designing stunning conceptual pieces, using the most luxurious of furs and fabrics. We got to shoot a look book with him before he left for Paris.
His latest collection is inspired by soft furs, inkblots and the darkest parts of the human mind. Frank invited us to view the line before we started working together and we fell in love with his craftsmanship on first glance. Not only did he use fur in unexpected ways (his gray sweater dress is actually woven fox fur), but used crystals and mixed different cuts of deep purple fur to play with the light that hits the pieces.
To reflect the original inspiration of the line into the look book, we decided to turn the model into a Rorschach inkblot through the use of mirror images.
One of our favorite pieces was the studded alligator helmets. We definitely need to get a pair of those for our studio!
