Picture this: It’s a sunny day in Coney Island, perfect for spending the day riding roller coasters and enjoying funnel cake while taking in the boardwalk and beach scenery. However, the reason we made the trek out to the iconic Brooklyn locale involves fun of a different kind: we’re photographing our Holiday 2017 Look Book with a dream team consisting of model Georgia Fowler, hairstylist Kenna, makeup artist Hung Vanngo and photographer Sebastian Kim.
Our theme this year, Time to Shine, manifested itself in myriad ways; fresh skin that glowed from within, slicked-back hair that caught the light just right, sequined pieces courtesy of Helmut Lang, Self-Portrait and Tanya Taylor. And as dazzling as the clothes were, there was just as much going on behind the camera. “The best part of the shoot was being in Coney Island,” said photographer Sebastian Kim. “Riding the ferris wheel at night with Georgia and eating hot dogs.”
This season is all about incorporating the spirit of the holidays into your wardrobe by way of metallic, sparkle and sheen. As you’ll see in the pages of the book, let the sun be your spotlight during the day, and at night, be your own disco ball. Perhaps no one voiced this sentiment better than Kim, who when asked how he interpreted this year’s direction, kept it short and sweet: “The clothes did all the talking!”
