DREAM OF LIFE

embedxanthe-581.jpg

This piece was inspired by Patti Smith; musician, poet and muse.
Her timeless tomboy chic and punk spirit transcend time, making her as culturally relevant now as she was back in the 70’s at the height of her career.

Barbara embodies the effortless cool of Patti- her spirit, her vibe and the way expression comes so naturally to her. Using pared down silhouettes and masculine tailoring, coupled with the NYC style loft apartment location Xanthe and her team wanted to recreate the iconic Mapplethorpe portraits of Patti in her heyday.

Barbara is Patti for a brief moment, or at least for a dream.
