What inspired you for fall 2012?
My fall 2012 inspiration is military meets prep.
How does this play out in terms of colors, materials and shapes?
The brand’s signature reds and blues are done in deep jewel tone shades. The military details add a rich texture-on-texture finish and fitted shapes create a strong silhouette.
What music did you listen to while designing this collection?
Rock-and-roll classics like The Rolling Stones remain a favorite, but I have also been enjoying indie artists like Johnnyswim.
What do you look for when casting your show/presentation?
I look for individuals who portray the preppy heritage of the brand and the spirit of the collection.
How do you stay energized/balanced in the weeks leading up to NYFW?
Good music keeps me motivated and I have a constant supply of green tea in the studio.
What other show(s) are you looking forward to seeing this season?
Peter Som and Simon Spurr are two immensely talented designers. I look forward to their shows each season.
How do you plan to unwind after Fashion Week.
Spending time with my family is a great way to relax. I like to plan a family getaway in Mustique to really unwind.
