A Whole Lotta Lottie
Keeping the party scene cool in the midst of London's summer heat wave, Calvin Klein Jeans' Kevin Carrigan and MyTheresa's Justin O'Shea celebrated their new collaboration at the Rosenfeld Porcini gallery in Fitzrovia last night. The Re-Issue Project is a nine-piece capsule collection that reimagines the emblematic denim, sweatshirt, and tees originally worn in the company's iconic ads of the eighties and nineties. Daisy Lowe, Tallulah Harlech, and Amber Le Bon turned up to see the line's campaign, which stars Lottie Moss, little sister to supermodel Kate.
Two decades after her big sis starred alongside Mark Wahlberg in the nineties-era ads, 16-year-old Lottie just signed with Storm Models. "The photos are great, and all the pieces in the collection are pieces I would wear: young, nice, and fresh," Moss told Style.com. "My favorite is the big gray sweatshirt." The black-and-white portraits were snapped by Michael Avedon, 23-year-old grandson of Richard Avedon, who shot the groundbreaking (and controversial) 1981 campaign with Brooke Shields featuring the infamous tagline, "You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing." Will these ads have the same potency as the originals? Check back with us in twenty or thirty years.
