I shoot a lot of amazing things for DKNY, from Fashion Week to new products, along with being one of their “Core Girls”. This was a really fun shoot we did at Ann Street Studio to celebrate their new fragrance for DKNY’s Be Delicious Art Collection inspired by Keith Haring. Like most New Yorkers, I think of Keith Haring as such a true New York artist. He was inspired by the city, used the city as his canvas and through that, found a unique and powerful voice. It makes sense that someone whose art was full of energy and color and so closely tied to New York would, even years after his death, find a collaboration in DKNY, such an energetic New York brand.
We took inspiration from them both, painting a mural in Haring’s style at the studio, keeping it simple and graphic, her red lips evoking his famous red heart and letting our model be young and free and a tad 80s inspired. We even drew from another famous New York City moment you might recall with Marilyn Monroe…
A celebration of art, youth, and all things New York in head to toe DKNY!
Featuring the artist’s iconic images the new DKNY Golden Delicious Art, Fresh Blossom Art and Be Delicious Art Inspired by Keith Haring feature a twist on each of the original scents.
Donna Karan on Keith Haring:
“His works are not just visually attractive, but communicate by messages which I can relate to”
