I shot this story for the magazine, Mirabella, which was started by the former editor and chief of Vogue, Grace Mirabella who'd been replaced by Anna Wintour. The fashion editor took a big fancy to my work and gave me a huge spread. However, she was snapped up by Ralph Lauren and the story was then shelved.
We shot most of the story in and around the Plaza Hotel with the focus on making cloths do double duty when you travel. Like the lightweight trench coat above can also work as a robe.
Good basics and layers are a great way to get the most out of your travel wardrobe. It is also a way to save space in your carryon, wear on a few comfy layers! Something like the outfit below, is perfect for a flight or cross country drive.
Yes, it is heartbreaking when a shoot you love doesn't make it to print...so it is exciting to have this outlet to give new life to these images. It also is a tribute to the editor that even though they were shot quite a few years ago, they still look very current. If your curious to learn more about what goes on behind the making of a magazine, then I urge you to see the excellent & fascinating documentary: The September Issue.
