Of all the outfit posts and shoots I’ve done for the blog, my favourite by a longshot was the fetish mask shoot featuring Joseph Turvey’s AW13 collection. I’ve followed Joe’s career quite closely since then. As a designer his strength lies in illustrations and textiles – but at the same time he has an astute understanding of the aesthetic merit of sportswear. In conjunction these two elements are a killer combination. He has recently teamed up with high-street giant River Island as part of their Design Forum initiative, to create a gorgeous capsule collection. I won’t bore you by describing it with words, instead I modelled my ass off for you. I hope you appreciated it.
Special shout out to Saucony – these shoes where everywhere at LCM, from Joe Turvey’s mainline presentation to Kit Neale. They also happen to be the most comfortable trainers I’ve ever worn. Sickening no?

Thirsty for more? FINE. Check out the Design Forum film starring the justanorm boys. It’s face-meltingly awesome.
