This season I had the pleasure of teaming up with Louis Vuitton once again (we first partnered on a guide to The Art of Packing and the Selfridges launch) to celebrate the new store at Heathrow Terminal 5. The T5 store is the European Airside store for the brand, anticipating the needs of the modern traveller, which of course makes sense considering Vuitton’s timeless relationship with the evolution of Air Travel. The facade of the store also feature a digital art piece by the French Artist Ange Leccia, worth noting for the next time you are there!
As you can see, I also had the opportunity to customise one of my favourite ever Louis Vuitton items – the Damier Graphite Keepall Bandouliere 45 and shoot a digital editorial with Hanna Hillier and The Gentleman’s Journal. You can read the full piece here.

In Paris for ASVOFF7 – our Ada + Nik SS15 film Carpe Noctem – directed by Oz Thakkar was screening at Centre Pompidou and nominated alongside the most incredible talent. The awards were chaired by Dries Van Noten. You can watch Carpe Noctem below or on Hypebeast. Many thanks to Diane Pernet and Dries Van Noten for supporting our vision.
As part of the incredible Rainer Torrado’s new series – Good Morning Midnight, where has already shot Andres Sanjuan amongst others. Honoured.
Friday nights captured by photographer Michaela Peker in London’s new private member’s club, Library – showcasing the new monochrome Calvin Klein bold watch. Fashion by Ada + Nik, shoes featured are the limited edition Nike by Fragment Japan collaboration.
On the set of the Carpe Noctem editorial for FTAPE, shot by Joseph Sinclair – we had some ad hoc fun heroing my new MCM leather and gold back pack. The rest of the outfit is Ada + Nik SS15 – leather and sneakernet fused shorts and airtex luxe tank top. The Jeep is also mine and made a fair few cameos in the FTAPE editorial.
