Mute the colours, empty the streets, bring back some of the flavorful quirkiness defining fashion in the early years of cinema and it will almost feel like time stood still, caught somewhere between the remnants of an old world and the inception of a brand new one. Matching Buster Keaton’s deadpan expression, the lovely Tatiana brings a new definition to the female dandy, echoing more than just the silent movie star’s “great stone face”.
A lesson in style and superior attitude, Vikram Pathak‘s editorial for Amazing Magazine NYC gains an urgent timeless quality.
Sharps, masculine lines that are all about precision, cropped pant silhouettes complemented with fun footgear, geometric patterns defining the idea of movement and Buster Keaton’s signature pork pie hat: together they bring a taste of the 1940s to the modern day, benefiting from Donald Lawrence and Tracy Wingrove’s impeccable styling and creative direction.
Hair by Katsumi Matsuo and makeup by Chantel Miller round up the unconventional inspiration, complementing both the tailored tuxedos, and the more lively clown get-up.
