Vanity Teen, Dudes and Paintings

// Our production for a Vanity Teen feature article about new male models / faces utilized THE PIONEERS creative director's paintings for the set design //

Videographer: THE PIONEERS x Ima Djie

In collaboration with the photographer Brad Mitchell Cohen and videographer Ima Djie our direction nods to (in)formal approaches in process, scatter, and performance art from the 70's - 80's.

We were impressed with the stylist Charlie Brianna's sixth sense for color blocking. She also aligned the hand-made quality of the paintings with hand-made garments. With the groomer Virginie Pineda we were struck with her ability to move between an undone look and pristine shape.
