Pumpkins & Poodles.

Thursday, October 31, 2013

So pleased to share that my first feature on one of my favorite websites, Freunde von Freunden, went live yesterday (another, based on an interview I conducted over the summer, will appear later this year). For this one, stylist Andreas Kokkino and his fiancé, art gallery sales assistant David Daniels, welcomed photographer Greg Kessler and me into their Bed-Stuy brownstone for coffee and homemade pumpkin cake.

My favorite bit of the interview? Andreas's answer to my question about fashion inspiration: "One day, when we first moved here, I was walking home from the train and there was a kid wearing three pairs of shorts so that you could see every waistband. He had no shirt on, and a pair of Nike slides with socks. On top of that, he was wearing a cape made out of a Disney Princess beach towel, and he was just walking down the street, business as usual. I found that very inspiring."


See the full interview at Freunde von Freunden, here. Photographs by Greg Kessler. Thanks again to everyone involved for such a wonderful day.

PS: I have three features this month in Rue Magazine, as well, including interviews with interior designers Kelly Wearstler and Nate Berkus. Check it out, here.
