Alternative visions – menswear story by photographer Jay Clark and stylist Lee Holmes

SHOT by photographer Jay Clark and styled by Lee Holmes, these predominantly black and white images capture the symbiotic relationship between fashion and the Surrealism art movement.

Oversized shorts and jackets create an exaggerated silhouette for menswear, while a flash of Schiaparelli pink, named after the Surrealist’s favourite fashion designer, is evocative of the era.
