IN COLLABORATION WITH EMPORIO ARMANI
When I got the opportunity to photograph pieces from the new Emporio Armani collection, I was delighted to say the least. I've been a fan of Mr. Armani's work since I was in my early 20's, interning at V Magazine, and discovering what fashion was all about.
The resolute modernism of Emporio Armani has always been filled with memories. The Twenties, in particular, are a boundless source of inspiration for Giorgio Armani who in that decade of great ferment and innovation, speed and urban spirit, has rooted an understated, linear and elegant taste. This season in particular the label looks to New York, whose contemporary identity came to life in fact during those years, and condenses the memory into fluid and sophisticated silhouettes with strong shoulders and narrow waistlines.
I took this opportunity to photograph the new collection to also get to know my new neighbour over at Fine Fellow, Frank Arthur, one half of the men's lifestyle website, Man Of Many. We selected pieces that complimented Frank's personal style and made our way to the industrial streets of Carriageworks to capture the looks and have a few words.

My background is product design, so I love anything to do with design and innovation. At the moment I'm hooked on articles about Tesla’s solar roof tiles. If these products take off, they'll revolutionise home architecture and help the planet.
