Fast Cars and Beautiful Men
Spring 2002 Collection
As the fabulous Mr. Mickey of Paper Magazine wrote about the show:
“This season felt very Members Only designed by Sofia Coppola. Nerdy but neat jocks and geeks. It had the emotional feeling of Coppola’s Virgin Suicides”.
This collection was about the kind of guys who love 1970s cars. The opening song for this show was Ventura Highway by America. Super 70s graphics on sweaters, shirts, pull on pants and leather jackets in colors of lilac, mint, chocolate, cherry, lemon-lime and raisin. Long shaggy hair, beards and the occasional moustache.
Ford launched the new Thunderbird and along with Conde Nast chose 9 designers to design Thunderbird inspired clothes. The launch ads ran in 7 different Conde Nast magazines.
I designed a leather jacket in Thunderbird colors with the logo T-Bird logo embroidered on the jacket front.
