We invited a handful of our favorite NYC Instagrammers to collaborate with us on our fall trend accessories and shoes campaign. They joined us at an Instameet-style shoot in the Big Apple because, party! We filled the studio with next season’s shoes, handbags, jewelry and hosiery, and let them do what they do best.
