I've been working with photographer Francesca Tallone for my past two collections (my only two collections, ha!) after meeting her at a party early into my time in Montreal. Right off the bat she suggested we collaborate on some shoots and, after viewing the ethereal, often ghostly photos on her website, I agreed that we'd be a very good fit. Francesca shoots all in film which seems almost a novelty as our lives become more and more digital. Her photos embrace a comfortable loneliness, private moments captured behind a blur of light and fog enhancing the intimate world of her subject.
Her ambiguous photography helps intensify the dualities I seek to create in my own work - a collection of garments for a multi-faceted woman, one who holds strength & vulnerability, darkness & light, boldness & modesty all in equal esteem.
These are the photos she took of the new Fall collection and I am incredibly pleased with them and how they frame the garments within. Thanks so much, Francesca, and thank you again to Vanessa who was the most perfect model for this project.
