i won’t sit still, dazed & confused may 2003

Posted in inspiration, magazine, menswear, sportswear, styling by benperdue on 03/08/2010

Always loved this shoot because it made sportswear feel subversive and dark, with typically toyish Formichetti styling touches like the harlequin masks just adding to the off-kilter feel. Kim Jones art directed this too and you can really see his influence in the body painting. I remember when he did a T-shirt collaboration with Topman the same year and I went down to Oxford Circus pretty much every day for a month asking the staff when they would be on sale. They featured twisted Alice in Wonderland cartoon graphics, like the Kim Jones tops you could buy in Pineal Eye but at a third of the cost. Rest of the shoot is here.
