Style: Luz Ortiz 

 

Heritage often plays an important role in our creative process and the content we produce. Both designers Luz Ortiz and Wolcott : Takemoto reference heritage in their respective collections along with a sense of structure and sensitivity to form. For Luz Ortiz, it’s her tropic upbringing and Wolcott: Takemoto, pull from cultural symbols within their Midwestern and Japanese roots.

We combined these ideas to create yin and yang imagery experimenting with winter whites and shades of cocoa  for a study in tone and contrast that feels grounded in heritage. Our muses Kiara Barnes and Sam Swan twinned in the Swing Drop Earrings by Ortiz complimented by wardrobe from Wolcott : Takemoto FW 16’  that lead to a playful "same but different" mood.
