Magically mad moments that would only happen in New York City..
Shooting in NoLIta (North of Little Italy) yesterday, I had the pleasure of sudden and very unexpected company. A man, whom unfortunately I can’t even name, decided to start art directing Jean Andre and I as we worked. He began by jovially yelling to us as he passed, which generated a few laughs, before pulling us in a million different directions, suggesting props and finally, stepping into frame. Aren’t we glad he did! The shoot is such a strong reflection of the energy that New York’s streets give, and the insanely incredible characters that bring said city to life.
We were on the streets to capture the latest collection of bucket bags by esteemed Australian luxury designer Rachael Ruddick. Rachael and I worked together as she launched her label years ago. She took a shot on me when my career was just starting out and we have remained close ever since. I love that our paths have crossed again and that I had the chance to shoot her beautiful product on the streets within which she now lives. The quality of these bags in precise and unmatched. Now, help me choose, which bag is more me – white, pink or lavender!? xHermione
