The multi-talented artist Lauryn Hill recently collaborated with clothing brand Woolrich in her first fashion campaign.
The clothing company, based in Pennsylvania, believed that Hill best embodied their fall/winter collection, “Woolrich: American Soul Since 1830.”
The campaign was shot in Washington Heights, Harlem, NYC by photographer Jack Davison. In one of the many stunning photos, the Grammy Award-winning artist reminded us why she was a fashion icon early on in her career.
In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Woolrich’s creative director Andrea Cane said, “The opportunity to work with Ms. Hill was the perfect start to our ongoing ‘American Soul’ project, highlighting Woolrich’s American heritage.” She continued, “We wanted Ms. Hill to bring her unique artistic eye to the product and DNA of the brand, so we invited her to put her own spin on these classic Woolrich styles.”
Hill also had a hand in designing the capsule collection. According to Essence, the pieces designed by the singer featured photos from her “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” album as well as the ad featuring her hit song “Ex-Factor” as a celebration of the album’s 20th anniversary.
The “Doo Woop” singer is also on tour in honor of the multi-platinum selling album, though Hill has been canceled and pushed back several dates. Catch a glimpse of a teaser from the collection below.
