Rag & Bone came to me for help with the re-release of The Pilot Bag. I teamed-up with the marketing team to create an up-leveled marketing piece which visually demonstrated the Pilot Bag’s strengths and verbally reinforced them. Copy speaking to the exquisite craftsmanship of the bag, calling specific attention to the luxury of the buttery soft lambskin leather as well as the military inspired hardware accompanied this combination of lifestyle and still life shots which reinforced the bag's utilitarian elegance.

The Rachel Roy woman is the classic definition of a super woman. She can do it all, balancing a successful career, home and social life. Always on the go, she dresses for success. She has an elevated taste level and she not only appreciates, but requires quality material and expert tailoring.
Rachel Roy is more than a brand. Rachel is a lifestyle, with Rachel the woman being the embodiment of her brand. She is as a taste maker and women trust her opinion.
With these key pieces of knowledge, we created the Dress Salon which visually depicts Rachel herself in her dress atelier. She is personally tailoring and approving each design and giving the “Rachel Roy” quality stamp of approval.

The sister brand to Rachel Roy is Rachel Rachel Roy which is the diffusion line sold exclusively at Macy’s. With drastically different price points and targets the marketing had to feel drastically different.
The Rachel Rachel Roy girl is a free spirit. She runs with a cool crowd and has her finger on the pulse of pop culture. She is naturally beautiful and understands that perfection does not equal beauty. She embraces her own quirks. She lives a Beautiful. Imperfect. Life.
Here she travels to SXSW and embraces summer festival fashion.

Rachel the woman is more than the face of the brand, she is a taste maker. This was communicated primarily through on-line creative content. RachelRoy.com was treated as an on-line magazine, with monthly editorials that were filled with tips and advice from Rachel herself.

The Problem: How to get customers to interact with the Rachel Rachel Roy brand online.
The Solution: The Rachel Rachel Roy Graphic Gee Bar. A microsite where customers could upload a graphic tee message of their choice. Customers were then able to vote on the best messages, and at the end of the contest the winning slogan got produced. The site was interactive and engaged customers in the creative process.

DKNYC needed assets that reflected the spirit of the DKNY spring 2014 campaign which was shot by Mikael Jansson in Times Square. This in-studio execution used a black and white image of Times Square as the backdrop with pop color graffiti elements, painted live on set, that spoke back to the main campaign direction provided by Laird & Partners.

DKNY is New York City. The challenge with this still life handbag shoot was how to create a city feeling within a studio space. Here, 2 iconic city elements are combined to suggest a city. Bright yellow light which fades into a soft yellow reflects the coloring of a taxicab and a background built out of actual city grates creates a grid.

For a collaboration with Seu Jorge, Rachel Rachel Roy goes to Brazil... without actually going to Brazil.
Harnessing the energy of a Brazilian carnival we combined poppy colored light, with tropical plants to create the sense of a hot and steamy Brazilian night.
