The Fashion Bride

Harpers_Bazaar_Laurel_Pantin_02

Just days before her wedding last weekend in Austin, Harper’s Bazaar asked us to shoot a story on alternative bridal looks for the fashion girl. This fashion girl being our friend Laurel Pantin and editorial director of The Coveteur who bought so many wedding dresses IRL it became a joke among friends. She explained to Harper’s:

“I want to feel really cool, and different and fun but then I also want to feel unique and like I was doing something off the beaten path, but then I also want to feel like a gorgeous princess…

I think my looks really round out all the different sides to my personality and the different things that I was hoping to express through my clothes at my wedding–the fashion-y part, the romantic, pretty girl and then just…disco garbage.”

In the end she was a beautiful princess (Monique Lhuillier), the hopeless romantic (Altuzarra) and a true sparkle baby (vintage Calvin Klein).

Below is a fun mix of playing dress up with Harper’s Bazaar with Fall 2016 runway looks and a few avant-garde bridal gowns from Spring 2017 for that fashion bride who truly has her own sense of style.

A Story for Harper’s Bazaar

Garden615px-blog

Tomorrow in Austin, Texas, my friend and editorial director of The Coveteur, Laurel Pantin is getting married. Everyone has their wedding dress story of finding “the one”, but working in fashion makes choosing that one perfect dress insanely difficult…. so that’s why Laurel bought somewhere around seven options! To play off her indecisiveness Harper’s Bazaar asked us to put together a fun fashion editorial covering a myriad of bridal personalities from traditional wedding gowns to designer Fall 2016 collections and every hairstyle in between….

Killing Time…

IWC-Cinemagraph-615

In-between shots, while Jessica was waiting for me to finish setting up, I looked over and there she was, just killing time, running her finger around the ardoise diamond faced IWC Portofino midsize watch and I thought there could not be anything more glamorous than lace, winter light, and a black wool coat so casually and effortless resting against a simple white wall…

Timeless Dressing

IWC_Timessless_Dressing_01

Updating the classics.

After our day together in New York City I was really taken to the idea of wearing a timepiece and started thinking about how that could integrate into my daily wardrobe from working days to all the holiday parties coming up. I was talking to my friend Laurel about this, who herself has such amazing taste (remember THIS shoot?!), on updating timeless dressing. I loved the idea of wearing a watch; it says a lot about a person, and with the IWC Portofino Midsize I think that says someone who is classic, intelligent, and above all timeless.

But let’s look at timeless dressing.

Laurel and I discussed how to make it more interesting, how to update the standard little black dress, how to do something surprising with a wide leg trouser… so in a sun filled studio on Manhattan’s west side we played dress up with Jessica Wall, with our city shining bright in the background, and spent together that thing that is the most valuable of all: time.

The best thing to wear with black lace is more black lace.
