Last year we collaborated with New York-based fashion photographer, Sophie Elgort, and her dashing younger brother, actor Ansel Elgort, to showcase a small men's capsule collection that we designed to coordinate with our women's line. The result is a mid-century inspired lookbook set at their family's home in Southampton.
Sophie and Jessica met during college while Sophie was at Brown University and Jessica was at the Rhode Island School of Design. Sophie went on to launch her fashion photography career in New York and now shoots for magazines like Elle, Tatler and Teen Vogue, in addition to her weekly photo blog Suits and the City for the Financial Times. Her equally talented brother, Ansel, whom you may recognize from the remake of Carrie out in theatres now, is one to keep an eye on - not just for his athletic good looks and old Hollywood charm, but for his acting ability which spans the stage and the silver screen. He's blowing up as we speak!
The talented duo's father is the renowned Vogue fashion photographer, Arthur Elgort, and their mother is an opera director - clearly, artistic ability is a dominant trait in the Elgort family gene pool.
Now, enjoy the photos that remind us of a 1950s seaside rendez-vous. Imagine a sequel to Cat on a Hot Tin Roof... Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor get over their differences and vacation in the Hamptons.
