It was so hard keeping this a secret, but the news is FINALLY out!!!
First of all – Â get into this mind-blowing collaboration between two genius brands, DKNY & Opening Ceremony. The thought quite literally took my breath away. Just their names together alone makes my mouth water! And what do they come up with?! They decided to dig into their DKNY archive and re-releaseÂ 15 hit pieces that they already made in the 90′s. Yeah – that’s right! Not only were they so incredible now as they were then, but it’s also so trend right to be on the 90′s today.
Not only did DKNY totally set the tone for Streetwear Fashion in the 90′s, but they were also mentioned a few times in some major and notable hip hop songs – like, NOTORIOUS B.I.G.’s “HYPNOTIZE”! Yeah, thats just how popular they were – no, Biggie…but really, Biggie!
Now, comes the ultimate lady boner (sorry)…Little ol’ me was asked to be featured in the official campaign. As if!
As if I would say no.
As if I wouldn’t have done it for free.
As if I wouldn’t have paid them to feature me! I mean…
Anyways. The shoot was inspired by the work of Ray Petri and my look was inspired by, non other than, Neneh Cherry…my own fashion muse since I was like 6!
The face of the campaign is it-girl and major model Cara Delevigne; and features Producer and Musician Kim Ann Foxman, Model boy Ian Sharp and Me! There are 15 pieces in total that range from $145 to $665! This capsule will blow your minds,Â especiallyÂ if you’re obsessed with the 90′s like me!
Here are some behind the scenes shots that ELLE CLAY captured when she kicked it with me on set!
Going through the looks…
KimAnn was so sweet. You might remember that I blogged her video “Creature” a little while back. She’s so talented and so humble!
