“For the Fall Winter 2017 Collection, I started looking at a lot of portrait painting, especially Northern European Renaissance painting. It was an interesting time because it was when artists started moving away from stylized depictions of the human form and the human face, and started rendering their subjects as they looked, with all their flaws and all of their imperfections. It really started an interesting dialogue for me in the collection about identity. I also think it allowed me to start having a conversation about the past versus the present, and creating a tension in the collection and in the look.” – J.A.
