“Lauryn Hill does what Lauryn Hill wants to do.” – Mel Ottenberg
The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the ground breaking album released in 1998 by Lauryn Hill following her departure from The Fugees, is celebrating its 20th anniversary and for the first time Ms. Lauryn Hill will front her very first fashion campaign for Woolrich.
Stylist Mel Ottenberg, who’s worked with Rihanna, worked with Hill on the autumn/winter 2018 campaign for the “Woolrich: American Soul since 1830” series collection that she helped design. The Woolrich campaign was shot by photographer Jack Davidson and the Onyx Collective around the location where the “Doo-Wop/That Thing” music video was shot.
According to an exclusive report from Vogue UK, “Woolrich selected the founding Fugees member to help recast the brand’s identity through its “Woolrich: American Soul Since 1830” series. All contributors following Hill will be picked for their creative ingenuity and contribution to America’s music scene, but Hill, whose solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was one of the defining neo-soul albums of the late Nineties and paved the way for artists such as Amy Winehouse and Alicia Keys, has been integral in helping forge the new Woolrich path.” Check out some of the pieces below. We will update when we have pricing and release date info.
