some kids are cool. some kids are oldschool. some kids are real. some kids are real gifted. lvrs tracy, member of 'the lovers' — a creative group founded by theophilus london, is definitely all of that. you can tell the youngster knows when he pulls out a film camera. scroll down as your life passes by on his famous tumblr here :
my collaboration with au courant, which has started as a modeling contract, grew into building a whole new concept to introduce the first piece of the brand's women line — "the pearl tee". translating my vision into words is the hardest thing, but the way i did it in this interview on 88connoisseur says it best :
" i myself am a creative mind to the core. the concept behind the pieces i designed for au courant was to take classic street style pieces to a whole other level of aesthetic. i wanted to display the beauty of a troubled mind through darkness and innocence, which is why we threw gorgeous pearls on basic men's t-shirts. the film was produced to build that kind of beauty by reaching opposite emotions like wrath, awe, vendetta and forgiveness. "
adam taubert, mikel helou, rupert lamontagne and i teamed up and put our minds together to shoot the campaign. the pieces will be available soon on aucourant.co.
