Honor’s Green Thumb
Honor’s Giovanna Randall cited the relationship between the natural world and the synthetic one as the inspiration behind her Spring ’13 collection. Both realms are well represented in the brand’s Spring film—an eerie short set on the roof of New York’s Empire Hotel. Directed by Ry Russo-Young, styled by Leith Clark, and starring model Codie Young, the film watches its heroine and an ethereal little girl named Olympia (who happens to be the daughter of Honor’s store designers, Jesse James and Gus Anagnopoulos) as their surroundings transform from a barren rooftop into a lush urban garden. “When I was designing Spring ’13, I kept thinking about the transition from bones and concrete to life, fertility, and vegetation—the balance between fragility and strength,” said Randall, who added that working on the project was “kind of magical.” Watch Honor’s feminine spring wares bloom in the new film, which debuts exclusively on Style.com (above).
