I had a super amazing morning at United Bamboo! I stepped "backstage", which was really the upstairs level of the insanely beautiful space at Studio 450, and felt super energetic despite the chill vibes coming off the models sitting & waiting for their time to change into their outfits. The whole studio was just FULL of the most amazing morning sunlight.
I got to meet makeup artist Dick Page, who explained his thought process behind the gorgeous faces he concocted. "Heavy lower eyeliner, like the girls did it themselves, and a wash of foundation over the lips, again to make the face look almost underdone"
The clothes themselves were to DIE for. Everything looked so perfect for the weather we're having now, from the shearling-lined peacoats, to the huge, oversized cardigans and earthy colored knits. Looking at some deatils in the plaids and knits, I'm reminded of old, dusty photos of depression-era children from the mid-west (if that makes sense?), think you get a sense of what I mean from looking at the military-inspired cardigan paired with a plaid shirtdress. I really adored the peacoats since we saw the shearling/military trend for Fall 2010 almost everywhere, and this seemed like a step-up, something more polished.
All-in-all, a great way to start a very lovely Saturday.
I still have more photos to show from The Lake & The Stars, HONOR (omg you guys), Joy Cioci, Erin Featherson, Pamela Love, Suno and Kimberly Ovtiz!
However, you can see all of those images on my TUMBLR for now if y'all are impatient
