Designer BRANDON MAXWELL presented Resort 2021 collection with the latest lookbook featuring top model Mayowa Nicholas captured by fashion photographer Chris Colls. In charge of beauty was hair stylist Ward Stegerhoek, and makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi.
“One day, after three straight months inside my house, I woke up, walked to the park, sat on a blanket with a bag of fabrics and my headphones, and chose colors, textures, and combinations that made me happy. I didn’t push myself to make more than I felt like I could in the moment, and when I finished the last look I said to everyone “I think that’s it, let’s stop there.” And that felt really great.
I wanted to create something that felt colorful, joyous, and optimistic because I believe, and know, that the sun will shine again. I don’t look at what we’re presenting to you as Pre-Spring in the traditional sense. I look at it as a reflection of a particular moment in time – a time when I could stop and feel my emotions, a time when I was creating a collection for the sheer joy of doing so. This experience is something I will carry with me going forward.” – Brandon Maxwell
