Steve Madden’s Back-to-School by Kareem Black
Fashion photographer Kareem Black at Bernstein & Andriulli captures a dynamic and colourful new Back-to-School imagery for the famed shoe maker Steve Madden. Stars of the session are up and coming models Theresa B, Nikayla Novak (DNA Models), and Lily Lightbourn (Trump Models).
Luxe Mob starring in the shoot found inspiration in Rihanna's Instagram account, @badgalriri, as well as her online posse. Rita Ora as well as the famed top model Cara Delevingne served as a source of inspiration. Model trio shot the images with Black on an afternoon in the Lower East Side and Chinatown.
"I think that those three are such a key part of the popular culture for girls that age – not so much for me, even though I love looking at them – so everyone was on the same page," – Kareem Black
"They're bright and busy, and looking at them, it does that thing to your brain that you experience when you're looking at Instagram. Plus, the color of Kareem's film is so good." – stylist on the shoot Khalym Schell
