Jonathan Cohen's Ready-to-Wear 2017 Fall fashion collection hypothesized "an imagined exchange between Robert Mapplethorpe and Carolina Herrera." As if building on this inspiration, the designer's new Fall 2018 collection is photographed in a style reminiscent of the famous Chelsea Hotel—a historic establishment in New York city, where Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe resided in the late 60s and early 70s.
The Fall fashion collection builds on conservative dress designs and repeating flower patterns in a wide array of colors; it references classic 60s silhouettes and gives them a modern, experimental twist.
In the captured images of the collection, the decor of the room is bland and old-fashioned, but the shots are elevated by the mixed prints and vibrant presence of Jonathan Cohen's clothing.
