TOOK A TURN and ended up in the stripe club with Grace Kasten for this editorial. With colors and prints and poses as bold as our model herself, we’re incorporating some seasonal staples: denim, patches, and stripes. 

Grace Kasten

is the 21st century renaissance woman. Model, professional-grade ballerina, engineer, China aficionado, aspiring investment banker, she's not your average Sophomore.

Though she did spend fashion week walking runways in New York for the likes of Alice & Olivia or V Files, she dabbles in all sorts of artistic and academic experimentation. Being fluent in Chinese, Grace hopes to go to Hong Kong next summer. “America is a melting pot, which is great, but the flipside is that it doesn’t really have a unified culture,” Grace says. “In China, it feels like everyone is on the same page.”

HER STYLE IN A FEW WORDS? “KATE MOSS,” GRACE LAUGHS.
