B/D Apparel Spring/Summer 2009 Lookbook

Beautiful/Decay recently created a lookbook for our Spring/Summer 09 seasons. The concept behind the shoot juxtaposes evocative objects & optical affects with our apparel, to complement the shirts in abstract ways. Still life images of disco balls, prismatic rings, shag carpets and balloons contrast the light, color and texture of the shirt graphics. See our apparel line come to life in new and unexpected ways! Photography by Luke Stettner.

Alice

Sawatari’s vision of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” is truly one of the strangest, most out-there interpretations of the well-known story. Risqué in terms of its frank, nude depiction of a youthful Alice, the book’s unintentionally psychedelic tone brings to mind Monty Python, Peter Greenaway, and Vogue Bambini.

"Guitar Backstabs"

The Midwest, motorcycles, cowboy boots, blue jeans, football—imagery associated with classic Americana—kicks, charges, rodeos and bedazzles its way through Grant Barnhart’s works. Bipolar homages/parodies on the goold old stuff that makes up our national iconography and ideaology, Barnhart’s works are a feast of star spangled satire and sincere adoration.
