Exclusive: Carleen’s video lookbook for SS16 is adorable

We’re lucky to work with some of the most amazing creative people out there in the world of fashion, so it’s always an honor to share the work they do beyond the clothes. Carleen, the Brooklyn-based label on the rise by designer Kelsy Parkhouse, just released their Spring/Summer 2016 collection with a video lookbook that’s currently inspiring our everything. Kelsy was inspired by Leanne Shapton’s watercolor art and the textures and palette of her native California this season, along with the power of strong female sisterhood. She enlisted Laura Kaltman and Jinnie Lee to produce and direct the video which aims to capture all those elements with a narrative of two stylish women in a long-distance, pen pal friendship. “The long distance/snail mail aspect really resonated with me because I have so many friends that I’m in that spot with right now as we get older and more spread out.”

It can be really fun to let other creatives put their own spin on things,” Kelsy explains. “Kind of like when a girl buys a dress and incorporates it into her outfits and lifestyle.”
