Back to the Future
For anyone who has ever seen the episode of Spongebob with Squidward screaming “chrome” will know exactly what we were going for with this photoshoot. The future is bright, shiny and colorless. Herding a group of campus eboys into the studio for this session was a surprisingly easy feat, though — all we had to do was give them attention and a Red Bull. And at the end of the day, we were able to pull together a futuristic fashion line that would make even my kitchen’s aluminum foil jealous.
