R29 is beyond thrilled to get our hands on an exclusive editorial from Tom Hines. With a client roster that reads more like the contents of our dream closet — including Proenza Schouler, The Lake and Stars, Katie Gallagher, and Samantha Pleet — Hines' shots have the ability to capture incredibly beautiful moments that beg for an extra-long gaze.
We're crazy for Kathryn Typaldos' (who we also revere for her work in W and Nylon, to name a few) styling in the featured project, conceptualized as a mix of high/low, runway/thrift, and what they're calling "tough grandma." Featuring model Kate Kosushkina, we invite you to lust over the soft looks set against barren backgrounds in six snaps you'll see here first.
We had you at "tough grandma," right? Click through for the exclusive.
