Sometimes the Flowers Arrange Themselves
On site with David Edwards Clothier — importer of fine Italian cashmere and couture menswear — here in Chicago. It’s 8:30 on a cold, November Saturday morning. Two floors of windows, at left, are allowing the natural light to outdo even the giant softboxes at our studio on North Ave. A group of good people, good food, coffee, sodas, a bag of Costco almonds, and laughter. You can just tell this crew is ready for the holidays.
Below, the model’s aunt reprises an earlier pose by her talented nephew; I get to capture the moment.
Brands are, of course, so much more than a collection of moments, although those certainly help. At their best, they’re full of the personality and vigor of those involved. This Fall, I’m thankful for the opportunity to work with so many unique brands and for the occasions where the pieces just fall into place.
