How To Channel Gossip Girl Style This Fall (If You’ve Already Graduated High School)

Eric Daman, the costume designer for both the original Gossip Girl and the HBOMax reboot, knows how to create a vision of youth style that is covetable across generations. Whether it’s Blair Waldorf’s headbands, or Julien Calloway’s white snakeskin boots paired with her school uniform (!),  Daman puts together outfits that make people—however briefly—want to time travel back to high school. So it’s fitting that for his latest project, a Roger Vivier campaign starring Gossip Girl stars Savannah Smith, who plays devoted troublemaker Monet de Haan on the show, and Tavi Gevinson, who plays Kate Keller, the teacher behind Gossip Girl, Daman is pulling inspiration from one of the most youth-focused decades: the 1960s.

The images, photographed by Heather Hazzan and released today, are inspired by supermodels of the era like Twiggy and Donyale Luna, with Smith and Gevinson wearing the new fall offerings—yellow tartan slingbacks, buckled white patent leather boots, and hot pink kitten heels—along with vintage, remixed sixties clothing and Vivier headbands. They’re undeniably vintage-inspired, but still ever so now. “People are dancing in the streets. People want to dress up, and the ’60s reflect what’s going on currently,” Daman shared over phone. “You walk out on Saturday night in Tompkins Square Park, and people are dressing up in short-short skirts. It just feels very current to me.”
