The temperature is already dropping down to the ’70s in New York and Facebook posts about sweater weather are starting to creep up in our newsfeed. For our 19th edition of He Said/We Said (HS/WS), we headed to Brooklyn to photograph some dashing dappers rocking fall style in Prospect Park. Photographer Eli Vickery and I selected the Viktor & Rolf Fall 2014 menswear collection as inspiration.
Here’s the 411 on the HS/WS project: The models fashion their very own looks using their own resources – I give the inspiration, they give the interpretation. They come to the shoot camera ready: hair, make-up, their own clothes, accessories and props. I didn’t want the series to reflect how to recreate menswear from an individual stylist’s point of view. The goal is to show our readers how a high end menswear collection, that may not otherwise be accessible for a variety of reasons (price, fit, etc.) can be reasonably replicated using creative approaches.
