AREA Dazzles in the Desert

Photography by Charlotte Rutherford / Styling by Anna Trevelyan

AREA, the cult-favorite downtown NYC brand known for their playful yet glamorous party looks, had even more surprises in store for their Fall 2019 collection: Oversized chunky fringed knits, '60s chain link crystals, and blown-up houndstooth prints. The vibrant clothes and accessories pop even more against the stark, Californian desert, where photographer Charlotte Rutherford captured Aweng Chuoi and Tricia Akello modeling the flashiest looks from the brand's latest collection. Between the glittery makeup, killer heels and iridescent sparkles, designers Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk make a convincing case for glossy, high-octane maximalism this season. Check out more photos from the colorful editorial, below.
