David Brandon Geeting is an artist living in Brooklyn and one of our favorite collaborators. We’re thrilled to present his photography, showcasing the Made & Crafted SS13 collection within his creative vision.
With David we focused on the collection’s unique construction elements. In the artist’s words:
I began this shoot by investigating the idea of “construction.” In relation to this project, “construction” referred to how the clothes were put together. It referred to every small thread working together to make a bigger picture. It referred to the shape the clothes took while being worn, and the shape they took while lying lifeless on the floor. It referred to the various vibes they beamed when paired with different colors and textures. When I think of construction in a broader sense, I envision a sort of behind-the-scenes, unfinished look at the final product. A look that is not totally refined, yet still captivating, because of its inherent mystery. As I began to shoot, it was evident that there was no formula to best represent the construction of the clothing as a whole, but that each individual piece required its own specific treatment. I enjoyed spending time with these clothes, viewing them as if they weren’t clothes at all, and trying to achieve a charismatic look at a long-established tradition.
We always knew product photography could be mind blowing. David’s photos are the first in a series that we’ll be presenting monthly, highlighting top notch up and coming American artists.
