Big City Girl

12:00 PM

On November 23rd the ladies of Closet Luxe NYC got together to create something magical. After minor re-branding Chante N. and Kinna LeBlanc  debuted their first vintage aesthetic for winter 2017 "Big City Girl"

Kinna LeBlanc serves as the Art Director of Closet Luxe NYC while Chante Watson executes as Style Architect for the nyc-based brand. The ladies curated a timeless vintage story, for their 2017 lookbook, which took place at the attractive Belvedere Castle inside Central Park. 

The team remodeled 1940s fall looks highlighting different textures like wool, tweed, fur and lace and introduced modern elements featuring a natural hair story within the shoot. I took inspiration from Beyonce and Solange's hair stylist, Neal Farinah, and decided to decorate blown-out tresses with colored hair pins for a more romantic effect. Photographer, Webster John Louis captured those details almost perfectly.

The call time to the west side of Central Park was extremely early and the freezing AM temperature was surely biting through my stockings; but the backdrop was breathtaking with clear natural light and fall elements of the park sprinkled in the distance. 
The Vintage architecture of Belvedere Castle and the large breed dogs, who randomly approached us, added an almost perfect touch to our theme. 

Stay tuned for more vintage curated editorials from us as we go in to 2017, but first, take a look at some of my favorite shots and find out what happens when a young glamour girl l touches down in a big glamorous city!
