I don’t usually do this, and I have to say I often get really good shoots from my students in my various classes at IED, and this year in particular I’m very happy with the work they produced for their final thesis project, but this shoot somehow resonated with me more than the others, maybe because doing something new and cool with Grunge isn’t that easy, maybe because some of its beauty derives from chance and error, maybe because I’m a sucker for the underdog. Whatever the reason I still think this is one of the best things I’ve seen in menswear as a teacher so far, and I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy.
