NPRPA SS2011

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

We have watched Samantha Sleeper, creative genius behind NPRPA, grow as a talent from her senior thesis days back at Parsons. So, when she asked us to work on the SS 2011 look book, we had to say yes. The collection was shot over 2 days.

The first day was a video shoot where we were called in to do the production stills. Shot outside on a gorgeous sunny day in Williamsburg (though a little on the hot side), the sun and wind added to the breezy pastel palate of the collection, really setting the mood for Spring.

The second part was a studio day to shoot what became the printed look book. We had Dani, an awesome model from One Models with us for both shoots. Kitty Andrews Millinery did a special collaboration project – 4 specially designed hats – for Spring 2011.

And after a long day we finally wrapped!

NYFW: The Milliner’s Guild SS2011

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

Our good friend at Kitty Andrews millinery invited us to the Milliner’s Guild show this year. Millinery seems to be an under appreciated element in the American fashion world. Everyone knows Philip Tracey thanks to the late Alexander McQueen, but few others spring to mind. The only celebrity I can even mention that dons more inspirational head wear is Lady Gaga.

Kitty Andrews and the rest of the group at the Milliner’s Guild are trying to change that. This season, Kitty Andrews has teamed up with NPRPA, for a special Spring collaboration (stay tuned for the look book we shot for them). The show went beyond the stodgy ideal of the church hat, into something for a woman on the town.

I definitely feel inspired to wear more hats after seeing this show.
