"I finally got a chance to produce an impromptu shoot with my good friend and photographer David Schayne and my childhood friends Yoomie and Kayla as the muses. I was in New York City to visit family and have work meetings, so the timing felt perfect to create a moody and nostalgic shoot in downtown Manhattan where both Yoomie and Kayla grew up. We started out on the streets around Thompkins Square and Bowery, and ended our day inside our room at the Bowery Hotel (my favorite address in NYC). Having fun and laughing A LOT is always crucial when collaborating with friends on Marei 1998 photoshoots. This is always a rewarding part of my work, to see the clothes come to life in humans that are just purely beautiful inside and out." - Maya
