I first met Danielle and Laura Kosann while coordinating to shoot their mother, jewelry designer Monica Rich Kosann ~ and I knew in a second that we would be friends. I could instantly sense that I’d found a pair of kindred spirits. Like my sister and I, the two work together, creating artful and inspiring content for both MRK Style and The New Potato ~ a lifestyle site that focuses its lens on the hottest news in food.
These two are totally tuned-in to NYC’s feeding scene. Always the first to try each buzzed-about new eatery; they’re the girls to text when in need of a reliable restaurant recommendation in some obscure neighborhood. They grew up here, immersed in a world of art and photography, of fine jewelry and high culture. Their intrinsic chicness is incredibly inspiring to me, and I’ve long dreamt of capturing their unique relationship and dramatic, arresting beauty in pictures. Considering that they were practically weaned on precious metals, I knew the best thing to do was to fill Ann Street Studio with crisp, monochromatic clothes, plus gleaming bijoux from LoveGold’s finest designers ~ then simply let it all sing off their alabaster skin and gothically glorious tresses. |ABOVE| Danielle wears: Lola hat, Camilla Dietz Bergeron necklace, Donna Karan bodysuit, Slane ring // Laura wears: Camilla Dietz Bergeron earrings and brooch, Prabal Gurung dress, Temple St. Clair ring (on index finger), H.Stern ring (on middle finger)|ABOVE LEFT| Danielle wears: Lola hat, Maiyet top, Camilla Dietz Bergeron, H.Stern and Slane bracelets, H.Stern rings, Nonoo pants |ABOVE RIGHT| Laura wears: BCBG dress, Slane and H.Stern necklaces, Camilla Dietz Bergeron bracelet|ABOVE| Danielle wears: H.Stern earrings, Nonoo suit, Camilla Dietz Bergeron choker and rings, Monica Rich Kosann lariat |ABOVE LEFT| Laura wears: Donna Karan blazer, Zac Posen skirt, Monica Rich Kosann locket necklaces |ABOVE RIGHT + BELOW| Danielle wears: Lola hat, Maiyet top, Camilla Dietz Bergeron, H.Stern and Slane bracelets, H.Stern rings, Nonoo pants |ABOVE| Laura wears: Camilla Dietz Bergeron earrings, Monica Rich Kosann necklace, BCBG dress // Danielle wears: Camilla Dietz Bergeron necklace, BCBG dress|ABOVE| Camilla Dietz Bergeron earrings, Alberta Ferretti coat |BELOW| Laura wears: Camilla Dietz Bergeron earrings and necklace, Alberta Ferretti coat, ADEAM dress, H.Stern rings // Danielle wears: 3.1 Phillip Lim vest, Tibi dickie, J.
