what are some go-to pieces in your closet?

this summer… vintage band tees, chinos and a trucker hat. kind of a throwback to my west coast days.

what was the inspiration for the soccer ball in this shoot?

soccer’s always been a part of my life. there’s a quote where camus said that everything he knew about morality he learned playing football. it’s a beautiful game.
