Chanel: Light and Time

Light is the universe’s constant. Time is ours. As photographers we study light versus time, making calculations and judgement calls for each photograph we create, manipulating light to play alongside the constant of time. From a macrocosmic view of the universe time is just an idea, but for us it’s a reality that never stops. We use photography to take a slice of that time, doing the best we know how to manipulate something out of our grasp.

Pantin in Polaroids

Laurel012

Recently we played around the studio with Chanel’s Spring Summer collection. Here are some behind-the-scenes Polaroids I fired off with my passport camera as Laurel brought to life all these kooky characters that reminded me of the subjects Cindy Sherman portrayed in her old black & white photographs…but this time, wrapped in Chanel and in living color.

The Streets of New York

Laurel_Pantin_Chanel_002

If you’re ever looking for a good time, walk with Lucky Magazine’s Market Editor Laurel Pantin down Canal Street in head-to-toe Chanel and listen to the guys try to sell the fakes to the girl in real. I have been wanting to shoot Laurel in a fashion story for almost 2 years now. Though we bonded over our Texas roots (she is from Austin), our paths to fashion were quite different. Studying Art History and writing from NYU, she originally wanted to be a scientist who never touched the idea of fashion when a twist of fate led her to a chance meeting and into the Condé Nast building. I love running into her at events or fashion shows just to see what she’s wearing…and though she is a constant subject of street style photographers, she always stays true to her own personal look, be it wearing men’s jumpsuitssocks + sandals, or looking like the subject of a 90s rom-com…. oh, and she kills a red lip. Aside from all these god-you’re-so-cool traits, Laurel is super down to earth fun, a major tomboy and between her and her bestie John Januzzi, has the best cynical sense of humor in the industry… to give you a good idea of just how cool she is, in the middle of this shoot she said, “I guess I shouldn’t have drank that entire bottle of Champagne yesterday.”

I did a quick little interview on Laurel’s favorite things about New York while we walked the street in head to toe Chanel Spring / Summer 2014 collection….

Chanel to me is…

the thing that makes you feel like the most special, beautiful, luxurious, pampered, ridiculous, frivolous, wonderful girl in the history of girls.

Favorite trait of New Yorkers is…

the ability to act like nothing fazes them while secretly freaking out.

Best pizza…
ALL THE PIZZA!!! But if I had to choose, maybe Motorino.

Best coffee…

…flavored ice cream? Blue Bell from Texas. I don’t think I understand what is good coffee and what is bad coffee. Like pizza, all coffee is good coffee!

Chanel Monday through Friday

Laurel_Pantin_Chanel_002

Everyone comes to New York with a dream… and sometimes, we get to wake up from the dream and live the reality. For Fashion Market Editor Laurel Pantin, waking up in Chanel Monday through Friday in a white fluffy bed that looks like puffy clouds high in the sky, putting Chanel up there in the heavens, is a dream.  Then I realize, I think we would all love waking up and living in a Chanel dream world….

Here’s to a new week! Have a great one…
