Study NY by Tara St. James‘ Fall/Winter 2010 collection has a hidden split personality. If it isn’t enough that most pieces can be worn two or three different ways, each look was also shot in two contrasting styles: A more conventional lookbook format by photographer Eric Reeves and a series of moody black-and-white images by Graeme Mitchell.

LET FREEDOM RING

“My inspiration came from the idea of imprisonment and freedom,” St. James tells Ecouterre of her collection, which she devised using zero-waste patterns. “This is literally represented by the cage-like silk top. And not as literally by the transformative qualities of the garments.”

In addition to organic cotton, St. James also applied local NYC-based deadstock, silk, vintage wools and cottons, and recycled polyester Ultrasuede.
