2016 marks the 60th Anniversary of Americana Manhasset, and the Fall campaign is part of a year-long anniversary celebration. Photographed, produced and styled by Laspata/DeCaro, the campaign was shot in various locations in Sicily. Backdrops range from the gilded Palazzo Gangi to the charming seaside town of Porticello to the historic and lovely Villa Wirz.
In conjunction with the still images, Americana Manhasset has debuted a short film, entitled “The New Romantics” which stars Natalie Westling and captures the oplulent spirit of the campaign, set to dramatic music.
Leave it to John Varvatos to continue to bend the rules. He was the one to close out New York Fashion Week this year. The location meant that the number of attendees was limited, but it also allowed Varvatos to more effectively showcase the “fabrics, details, textures and finishes” of the line, he said. “I want to do something different and this venue could be in France.”
