For the Fall Winter 15 collection, Carhartt WIP representative Hayden Taatjes partnered with photographer Michael Elijah Rodriguez on a side project, producing a body of work that situates the brand in New York City and showcases iconic pieces under a new light.
Shot throughout downtown Manhattan and its neighboring boroughs, this look book hints at the ubiquity of DIY alterations while also replacing expected backdrops with unfamiliar landscapes. Androgynous outfits suspend gender roles, spur of the moment film shots highlight a need for spontaneousness, and the end result feels like a unisex line birthed by the youth of New York City.
