Amy Taylor and Gregg Hubbard Layer it On
It’s getting cold and that means we are solidly in layering season. Layering is about being dynamic and flexible, evolving with the weather and the changing temperatures, while keeping a look fresh and comfortable.
Refinery29, who always has their pulse on current trends and needs, is acutely aware of how challenging layering can be. Layering means more articles of clothes need to fit squarely into one styled outfit. It must be a more forgiving look, while making room for diversity and shifts throughout the day as layers are added and taken away. And don’t forget the breadth makes room for plenty of self expression.
What better way to express the fashion of layers than to set their shoot in an Amy Taylor layered utopia? Using huge sheets of paper, Amy constructed environments reflecting the layers in the clothes on the set, bringing that energy across the entire image. Her designs set the tone, creating a world with total context for the fashion.
Gregg Hubbard was also on hand, completing the layered extravaganza. Adding a softness of color to blend beautifully with the surroundings. It’s a full three dimensional, immersive look at this theme.
These two artists provided the thematic space to tell Refinery29’s stories. It’s seamless, almost invisible work, to ensure the story is told well.
