Summer is officially here, which means the semester has ended for all my amazing assistants...and so off they go! Some to study abroad, some back to their hometowns for a bit.
But before my photo assistant, Therese, headed out, I decided I wanted to put her on the other side of the camera for a "Before You Go" Lookbook
I enjoyed this session for a handful of reasons---
1. I love creative directing photoshoots
2. Letting Therese practice another skill of hers-modeling
3. Collaborating on outfit ideas for product-pairing and everyday wear
These were my top picks:

During a recent trip to Horween, I came across a plush leather hide I'd never seen before. The sunlight peering through the window of this family-owned tannery caused the color to glimmer; a rich forest green. It wasn't until I touched it that every possibility of moving on passed it was gone...
Dawn|Dusk is more than a recent collection; it's a concept to embody. This unisex tee is an extension of what birthed the line of accessories.
I designed this symbol to visually communicate the beauty and balance of dawn & dusk. They are bookends to the day; similar in purpose but different in approach. They are faithful but not monotonous. They are opposite but equal.
So for Lucy's Fall/Winter project, we decided to expand on this idea. Continually inspired by light & movement, she endeavored to use leather to craft shapes & designs that express this particular inspiration. In doing so, she created three distinct abstract designs and then worked them within three distinct accessories; hanging wall art, a tote and a clutch.
