Neutral and Crisp – Michael Kors Spring Summer 2014

Neutral and Earthy For Spring

Some called this collection 70′s inspired, which wouldn’t be wrong. I’m certainly reminded of vintage pattern packaging illustrations. What I love is the palette, the cohesiveness of the collection and the luxurious wearability that is a hallmark of Michael Kors.

Pulse!

Pulse!

The blinding pulse of light that signaled the start of the Naeem Khan FW14 runway show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week last month.

The background of the Naeem Khan runway was a simple array of lights. Previously I’ve only seen these lights at concerts. I wish I knew what they were called. They get really bright, but then dim down relatively fast. I assume they use a lot of energy and get really hot. It’s like a sunrise, or that scene in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. There was a blinding pulse of light followed by a parade of models in the slinky, shiny, luxurious gowns that Naeem Khan specializes in. I can’t say it was a standout collection (albeit a good one), but it was a standout show I will not forget.

I think Karlie plays with the photographers during run-throughs. She turns her head quick so we don’t get too many shots. I know Karlie has a relationship with Cushnie et Ochs. It shouldn’t have surprised me to see her, but it did. I like good surprises.

It was a hot and sunny day in Miami at the SLS Hotel but I enjoyed the more relaxed atmosphere poolside. The photographers could move around and get creative.

School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Student Show. May 3rd 2013.

Color. Texture. Volume. Silhouette. Creativity. On May 3rd the students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago put on a great show and I was a lucky photographer (among about a dozen others) to capture it. I was really impressed by the work, most of it could hold up with the best of the best in New York, London, Paris or Milan. Present in the audience were Ikram Goldman of her exciting eponymous Chicago boutique. Also in attendance were the designers of Rodarte, Kate and Laura Mulleavy and Mickey Boardman from Paper Magazine.

Michael Kors Fall Winter 2013

Growing up in Wisconsin I’m no stranger to hunting season and it’s ubiquitous blaze orange, as well as camouflage. Michael Kors was perhaps inspired by a trip to the North Woods? What I do know is the collection was crisp and graphic and wearable. This was my second MK show so perhaps I’m biased towards the previous spring collection with all those great hues simply because it was my first time at a Michael Kors show? Still, this was a great show, highly produced by Bureau Betak, full of impact and energy at The Theatre (the largest venue at MBFW). And on top of it I think I got some good images. I was right in front, sitting on the floor, a little off to the side.
