September in Colorado might still feel like summer, but here at Lifestyle, we’ve got fall on our minds: a fresh, new season for a chic, new you.
For our Bikers & Babes shoot captured by the talented Noah Berg, we partnered with stylist Wendy Talmon and Rocky Mountain Harley-Davidson, a unique creative pair, who added edge to these timeless classics. (Think denim, leather and more leather!) Completing the style trifecta was illustrator Sarah Nicholsen of Petite Press who brought her own creative stylings to create the dreamy, illustrated backgrounds.
This is admittedly not the first time a motto-inspired shoot has been done: you might remember the September 1991 issue of Vogue and the iconic “Wild at Heart” spread featuring supermodels Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz, Helena Christensen, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Karen Mulder and Stephanie Seymour. Styled by the legendary Grace Coddington, fashion was never again quite the same. Fast-forward 25 years (which, coincidentally, many fashion experts believe to be the full lifecycle of a fashion trend), and it’s time once again to revel in rebel fashion.
“Whether you’re a hard-core biker or just love that classic biker look, you can incorporate some edgier pieces into your own style,” says Talmon.
And who doesn’t love a little edge?
We stuck with basic black-and-white, adding pops of Pantone’s fall 2016 color lines for a bold statement: greys, burgundy, tans and teals. We hope these pages inspire you to make your own bold statement, to fear not the edge of fall, and to always stay wild at heart.
