Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the Winter Kate 2012 lookbook shoot, styled by Nicole Richie's best friend and stylist Samantha Traina. It was shot by Alan Silfen, Lionel Richie's go-to photog, in the deserts of Cali (where many of my relatives live, by the way...my mom grew up out there!).
Here's a bit about the collection:
The Spring 2012 Winter Kate collection was inspired by the mystical city of Rajastan, India. Nicole incorporates a bold palette of saffron, burnt ochre, peacock blue and amaranth to echo the exotic charm of the subcontinent, while continuing to stay true to her signature boho-chic style. Delicate silk-embroidered bed jackets and frocks bring to life the intricacy and detail of the local handicrafts and provide a handworked feel, juxtaposing more minimalist pieces with a hint of Far East influence.
P.S. I have yet to get my hands on anything Winter Kate, but um, excuse my pun, but this winter seems like the perfect time to me! Swooning over it all, per usual...
