Portraits - Holiday/Resort 2019 Americana Manhasset
With the season's first snowflakes upon us, so, too, marks the arrival of the Americana Manhasset Holiday/Resort book. From Kiton and Max Mara to Van Cleef & Arpels and Tiffany & Co., the fabulous 68-page picture book, entitled "Portraits," captures the very best holiday and resort ready-to-wear, accessories and jewelry from the most luxurious brands in the world.
Photographed, produced and styled by Laspata DeCaro at Pier 59 Studios in New York City, “This campaign carries on the tradition of previous Americana holiday campaigns, featuring an assemblage of different models with different backgrounds and ethnicities,” says Charles DeCaro. “We wanted to continue the message of individuality, but within the context of classical portraiture."
To realize this, a diverse assemblage of models -- Birgit Kos, Sara Grace Wallerstedt, Bhumika Arora, Salomon Diaz, Dylan Fender and Dae Na -- were photographed against painted backgrounds of renaissance-style landscapes, "giving them a timeless quality, [while] the thoroughly modern fashions and styling ensure that the campaign is very much of the moment," DeCaro notes.
Adds Andrea Sanders, Americana Manhasset’s creative director: “Traditional portrait represents a captured moment, a stillness. And there is simply no better time than the holiday season to stop and appreciate special moments with those you adore."
