About the Shoot

Our latest Guest Stylist comes courtesy of Charles Manning all the way from New York. As with all our Guest Stylist shoots, the stylist is given free reign and creative control, using the Reiss collection to illustrate their story.

We caught up with Charles to discover the inspiration behind his shoot…

For me, it always starts with color.  Red, white, and black is such a strong, graphic statement, but it can feel a little heavy-handed in the studio. So, the photographer and I brought in blue backdrops and frames to liven things up and ensure that the emphasis stayed on the structure and silhouettes of the pieces we were featuring.
