It’s a project called “Close Up and Private.” It is a super-up-n-close exploration of modern style of what I’d call the “hipster generation.” You get the feeling from these photographs that these people own vinyl records and probably don’t play them very often. Clothing in these photos are from LOTS of different places, amongst them Comme des Garçons, Barneys Boutiques, Polo, Experimental Jetset – the shirt for 2K/Gingham (Beatles), Ray Ban, Vans, Adidas, D&G – Dolce&Gabbana hello! – + more I can’t recognize or type n such.
The above picture is my favorite. Looks like there’s a place for a little photo to be installed in that tie, doesn’t it? If not, there should be. Dibs!
