An interview with French photographer and director, Cyrille de Vignemont
I first noticed photographer and director Cyrille de Vignemont’s light-filled work through Isabel Marant’s Spring 2012 film. It was tranquil, minimal, natural, and familiar. A quiet scene of waking up at dawn and putting on your most comfortable, beautiful sweater. To greet the daylight, the morning, wrapped up in warmth and bathed in intense beams and rays.

A Détacher Fall/Winter 2013 Runway Review
An inscription on the gargantuan marble James Farley Post Office in midtown Manhattan reads, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” An honorable creed that Mark and I took very seriously as our team motto. We had to uphold it!

Ye waves divide not lovers long
The day after Thanksgiving I purchased a beat-up but beautiful old edition of Bulfinch’s Mythology. I flipped open the fusty book and landed on the fable of Hero and Leander. It’s a brief entry in Bulfinch’s but the tale of love and tragedy is potent. It has captured the imagination of the poets Byron and Keats and the painters Turner and Twombly.
