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.

The show opened with aerial silk performers representing with flight and metamorphosis of the butterfly, whose theme runs through out the line.

We loved the colorful braided leggings and punchy color/pattern combinations of this line.

Tiia Vanhatapio: Druidess

This one grabbed my attention immediately with the 2 opening models with reindeer antlers strapped to their heads. The line is based on the 1954 film “The White Deer”. Basic plot, woman goes to shaman for love life help and gets turned into a white reindeer vampire. I think this film needs to go on the netflix list! The theme is carried through the line with images of reindeer. fur, witchy druidess dresses, and long flowing robes.

Islaet: Fantasy Fantastic

Islaet opened with a solo opera performance that melted away into fun club inspired line. The themes explored were the contrasting of high society and the night life of an it girl. The line included more sophisticated day wear with more casual fun evening look.

NYFW: Richie Rich SS2011

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

First night out at NYFW SS2011 and Richie Rich brings out the grown up club kid in us!

Richie Rich’s debut solo act following Heatherette, PopLuxe, opened with ballerinas and a performance by DJ Mia Moretti and electric violinist Caitlin Moe. A It was a dance party filled with neon, lace, whips, chains, leather, studs and spandex. The show ended with Ellen DeGeneres and an explosion of glitter everywhere. We really loved those studded jackets!

Please send one to Ducky…. he’ll rock the shit out of one (Kitty wouldn’t mind one either).

Lastly, just for fun. We spotted our favorite hip hop-meets hardcore front man from Body Count, Ice T, checking out some bodies of his own.
