Some days it’s not about having a styling job where I make things “pretty” - some days it’s about making things “pretty bitchin”.
I’m working on a magazine cover shoot where the guy skater needs to look very 1970′s. So I decided that besides tracking down some old school OP shorts, Hang Ten & Lightning Bolt tee’s, puka shells, striped athletic socks, etc. etc. I’d also take some Vans (Thanks Van’s!!) and distress the hell out of them to make the shot even more 70′s authentic. Vans are the one thing you can never seem find in thrift/vintage stores, because seriously, who ever purges their Vans?? No one …
Spent hours and hours this weekend working on these babies and I think they are just about perfect now for Monday nights shoot. They kind of take me back to my youth… Good memories. Can’t wait to show you the magazine cover when it comes out!
P.S. Thinking perhaps I should do a pair for one lucky reader (custom made in their size) as a give-a-way in the near future.. hmmm Good idea?? Let me know if you’d be into this and maybe I can make it happen.
