This shoot was inspired by Patti Smith and her dark, yet feminine song, “Dancing Barefoot”.
Patti was a true style icon in my eyes. Some know her for her book “Just Kids” with Robert Mapplethorpe, others know her as the “Godmother of Punk”, artist, feminist and poet. I truly believe she paved the way in the seventies for androgyny today, with her trendsetting style. I think her effortless Tomboy look was/is so sexy and appealing.
Patti never cares what anyone thinks of her and I think that’s what truly makes her a trendsetter and ultimately a badass rebel. This Nasty Gal “Mademoiselle Pussy Bow Blouse” can be worn with a pair of black trouser pants like I have shown, or it can be paired with a skirt and vest this Fall, for a more femme look.
