i'm feeling a bit nostalgic. often when i am coming up with concepts for editorials and storyboards i look back at my youth...not to get inspired by the clothes but to capture and express the emotion of that time and translate that into what i do. for those new to my blog, i grew up on skate boards and punk rock. and seeing photos of that time makes me happy. i see a lot of stupid shit in the children's industry but for me it's important for kids + youth to be portrayed as kids + youth: young wild and free.
and yes, those are vision street wear shoes. i had a few in my youth. yeah, there is a lot of controversy attached to that name but i'll always stand by my word that the gator print is the most iconic print. ever.
