Steven Meisel & ZARA Collaboration

Steven Meisel and Zara Unveil Collaborative Fashion Collection

The Esteemed Photographer Lends His Iconic Style and Creative Vision to the Spanish Fashion Brand

Known for capturing the essence of the fashion world’s most iconic mononymous models—think Linda, Amber, Gigi, and more—Steven Meisel is now stepping into a new role. This month, the famed photographer is partnering with Zara for a highly-anticipated collection, aptly named Steven Meisel New York. This new venture marks a significant chapter in Meisel’s longstanding relationship with the Spanish fashion powerhouse, a collaboration that has ranged from seasonal campaigns to last year’s artful exhibition, “Steven Meisel 1993: A Year in Photographs.”

Over his remarkable career, Meisel has developed a unique visual vocabulary that has helped shape contemporary fashion imagery. This new Zara collection reflects just that, serving as a compendium of Meisel’s artistic flair. The collection’s lookbook comes to life through a collaboration with industry veterans like stylist Karl Templer, makeup artist Pat McGrath, and hairstylist Guido Palau. Among the cast are iconic figures from Meisel’s portfolio, including Linda Evangelista, with whom he recently published a book.

Meisel, often recognized for his enigmatic presence as much as his work, is an underappreciated style icon in his own right. This collection seeks to rectify that oversight, featuring items inspired by his signature style elements such as trapper hats, bandanas, workwear boots, and parkas—all presented in an elegant all-black palette.

The collection also gives a nod to Meisel’s musical influences with loose-gauge knits reminiscent of ’90s grunge and lace-up leather trousers channeling ’60s rock icons. For fans familiar with his early career, the line even includes t-shirts adorned with his own illustrations—a skill he once applied to projects for Halston and Women’s Wear Daily.

The Steven Meisel New York collection will be available online at and in selected stores starting September 18, with prices ranging from $27.90 to $439. Fans in New York City can get an early glimpse at a pop-up shop, open from September 9 to September 13 at 33 Howard Street.

In a delightful twist, the collection features models like Kaia Gerber, Scott Barnhill, Jackson Jarrel, and Alton Mason wearing outfits inspired by Meisel’s own iconic style. It’s a charming, meta moment that encapsulates the enduring influence of this multi-faceted artist on the fashion industry.
