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.

Following a morning shoot with i-D magazine for All Walks Beyond The Catwalk, I spent the afternoon with photographer Fiona Garden and artist Ben Ashton where we created a set of portraits with the ambition to turn them into a singular oil paint canvas. Fiona and Ben are both visionary geniuses and it was both an honour and pleasure partnering with them on this. Fiona has also shot the new Ada + Nik: Carpe Noctem images for SS15 which are set to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Last week I wore a 1994 Jean Paul Gaultier tartan, navy and black kilt to the opening of ‘The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk’ Barbican exhibition. It was photographed, but none of the event images truly did it justice. Working with my brother has become somewhat of a habit, we filmed The Dark Wolf together, worked on a film for Maharishi and are teaming up for some upcoming rather major projects. I wanted to shoot with the 1994 archive piece before it had to return to Paris, in honour of Gaultier – one of the most generous men in fashion and truly do it justice. So here’s what we created – art direction by Nikita Andrianova and Jake Whitelocke, with photography by Oz Thakkar.
