I collaborated with stylist Patti Wilson on Dennis Basso’s Spring 2010 show. We have worked together for 10 years and Patti continues to inspire me. She is consistent in her vision, always combining a hard edge with touch of feminity.
Her work reminds me of the German club scene pre WWII. Always a bit decadent, sexual with an edge but soulful too.
She has worked with Steven Klein forever for Italian Vogue and styled the campaigns for Dolce, Armani and Valentino.
When I’m designing I will sometimes make something and think “Patti will love this!”.
For Dennis we mixed a mostly feminine floral, soft feel with an unexpected “Mad Max” topping.
