COLLECTION 25 is now in store and ready to ship! But these limited pieces will go quickly so order soon!
I designed this limited edition capsule in honor of my 25th anniversary in fashion design, and for such a special personal milestone, I knew I needed to do something unique for this collection.
Collection 25 features a supple stretch leather that is as gorgeous as it is soft, and because of the stretch, it is incredibly comfortable!
For inspiration, I looked at the history of leather, particularly starting in the mid-20th century with the bomber and motorcycle jackets worn by Steve McQueen, Marlon Brando, and James Dean. But the real inspiration came from the style of iconic women like Joan Jett, Patti Smith, Tina Turner and Debbie Harry. They borrowed from the boys and helped pave the way for women to find their rightful place in music.
Several of the pieces from the collection are named for these women, like the Jett leather pants or the Benatar leather dress. All I can say is that you have to try them on—they are to die for! This is a limited edition collection, so once the pieces are gone, they're gone for good.
If you are in Chicago, I invited you to visit my 25th anniversary retrospective at City Gallery at the Historic Water Tower. In addition to displays of fashion from my archives, you can see new photographs of Collection 25, shot by famed photographer Sandro Miller. I am so proud of this campaign—Sandro and our amazing team captured the edge and power I was seeking in these pieces.
