Chrissie Miller, designer to the downtown it-girl set and scion of celebrated astrologer Susan Miller, has released images from her latest look book. Photographed by Cass Bird (a seasoned Miller collaborator), the book showcases Sophomore’s SS09 collection sported by a slew of Miller’s friends, who often double as models for the line. Included in the mix are Cobrasnake protégé Cory Kennedy, musicians Lissy Trullie and Harley Viera Newton, and rock offspring Alexandra Richards.
The photos showcase Bird’s inimitable Kids-meets-The Virgin Suicides aesthetic. The clothes are classic Sophomore — cute tanks and tees and a signature black miniskirt, most of which are adorned with zippers or buttons. Altogether, the look book epitomizes the kind of lackadaisical hot, summer afternoon of which I am in feverish (literally, I’ve had the flu all week) anticipation.
