A vérité-doc fashion dream.
What’s precious? What’s enough? What are the aesthetics of desire?
Amanda Mehl’s genderless & up-cycled vision inspired this collision. We shot this exclusive collaboration just pre COVID19 on location in the NYC Diamond District. Now it feels like an artifact from a time before touch was potentially lethal. Questions of luxury persist brutally pertinent in our current landscape. An iconic representation of the old NYC dream chasing hustle in a city that may never be the same. **Sending thoughts to the small family traders of this block, vulnerable from developers.**
