Purposeful Design: 2016 Ford Explorer at the L.A. Auto Show

I always learn new things about design when I’m collaborating, and working with Ford at the Los Angeles Auto Show last month was no exception. Check out the video I shot with them to hear my thoughts on the all-new design and purposeful attention to detail of the 2016 Ford Explorer.

Frida Giannini Leaving Gucci…Who’s Next?

Guc3480Web1

Frida Giannini’s reign at Gucci is over.

 

Riccardo Tisci is speculated as a front runner to take over for her, but it seems he’s built a whole world and culture around his vision of the Givenchy brand.

 

There’s a lot of names being thrown around, but I’d love to see Proenza Schouler in that position. I have no idea if they have any contracts that prevent them from doing a job like that, but I just feel that they have that edge of sexiness and the ability to play on an international stage.

On the Street…Varanasi, India

I just love this image. I don’t know why. I’m actually thinking about making a print and hanging it in a cute corner of my apartment.

Long White Gloves for Bicycling, Varanasi, India

After yesterday’s post on long white gloves was published, my assistant pointed out that the first two images were actually of the same woman. Because my schedule in India was so unstructured, I would have thought the chances of shooting the same woman twice would have been infinitesimal.

 

To see someone, halfway around the world, with my same passion for mixing color and pattern, made me feel an instant kinship to this mystery woman.

Varanasi Micro-Trend: Long White Gloves for Bicycling

I love the speed, strength, and vitally you see in these young, mobile woman.

 

I’m very happy that I was able to document this beautiful expression considering I was usually sitting in the the back of a rickshaw, heading equally fast in the opposite direction.  (If you notice the eye angle of these shots is slightly different than past bicycle shots it’s because, in the rickshaw, I was usually sitting slightly higher than the subject.)

On the Street….Cricket in the Park, Mumbai

I loved spending an hour or so watching these guys play cricket in the park, not far from my hotel.

 

It really felt like a quintessential Mumbai moment, but — at the same time — if  I squinted my eyes, it felt/looked exactly like guys playing baseball back home in Central Park.  And yes, of course I tried to hit the ball (don’t ask how I fared).
