This Hunger Magazine editorial shot last fall by Magda Kmiecik is still my favorite Mia Vesper story to date. While it's true that I love all things Marie Antoinette and Spice Girls (two "more is more" icons often associated with my style), it's also true that I love simple, androgynous, sporty. I only make and wear colorful and textural pieces because A) theres not enough out there and because B) manufacturing clothing in America with tons of complicated design elements is very expensive. This means I use simple designs and rely on color, texture and pattern to lend interest to each piece. Sometimes I feel misunderstood as a designer because people assume that I appreciate only what's gratuitously shiny, sparkly, fuzzy or floral. Thankfully, Magda got the inner Scandinavian tomboy inside me and we co-styled the editorial seamlessly (I was in charge of the clothing and beauty and Magda styled the still lifes). And in case you wondered, you can feed this temporary tattoo paper into your home printer. Available at Blick and SO COOL.
