Yesterday, at London's Dover Street Market, photographer Derek Ridgers launched his 'Selected Works' exhibition in conjunction with jewellery brand Bunney and art director Rupert Smyth. The imagery and installations were based around the lookbook for Andrew Bunney's brilliant A/W12 collection of silver jewellery, presented during London Fashion Week back in February. The DSM basement space, designed by Smyth, also featured a collaboration with Lewis Leathers jackets. The combination of Ridgers' subcultural photographs and Bunney's take on youth culture through his accessories made for a visually strong statement: “I like to see people wear things in a way special and unique to themselves - something which has character but not costume. This selection of Derek's work captures a time of experimentation that encapsulates this for me - the looks are very particular and of their time, yet still feel very contemporary. And most importantly the styles never overshadow the person”, Andrew Bunney said of the collaboration.
