RECKLESS

Mateo Velasquez, a Colombian final year BA Menswear student at Central Saint Martins worked with fellow SABBIA collective member Paolo Steve, who photographed his pre-collection editorial project. Velasquez was inspired by the incapacity of letting go of the past; the anticipation of moving forward that came with the millennium’s turn, and the inevitable nostalgic glance back at the 20th century – 70s glam, 90’s street, even trash culture continued into the noughties.

Beside his own designs, Velasquez used pieces by Jean-Paul Gaultier, Chanel, Givenchy, Dior, Burberry, Armani, Zana Bayne, Janira Gaya, and Unif Clothing to complete the looks in this editorial.
