The drive inside is the best sound to listen to. These are textures, tones; and clothes I'd like to wear.
Aleksandra Kolanko’s sweet silky garments are literal second skin. This spring, I had the honor of working with the New York based designer in collaboration with a few of my favorite artists, Lara Callahan and Brenna Drury. The white wooden floors and windows that peep morning light inside (her studio): the perfect inspiration for the soft, luxuriously creative pieces that she hand-sews and displays. Aleksandra designs for the romantics, offering gorgeous, one-of-a-kind pieces made for both inner wear and out.
Each garment tells a major story, from contemporary boning in the corsets to the finely turned hems in the tanks. One open-back piece has rosettes along the neckline, for the most stunning feminine glow. I love the thoughtful cuts and tailoring that come with each item. There is no point in buying a garment that does not have a fit that makes you feel like a princess.

My best friend has been in Paris all year, I am painting dresses for a project tomorrow. She tells me every day what she sees on the street. I'm dreaming of new images and planning spontaneity. I want to create 1000 more shoots with the new images I have in my head.
