As the festive season approaches, it’s time to huddle up together to collaborate on some fun projects with your fellow men. With that in mind we have joined forces with menswear brand oki-ni to work on some editorials that explore some exceptional up and coming talent. We have chosen four excellent set designers to take oki-ni’s products and create some exclusive still-life shoots to publish over the coming weeks. First up? It’s Miguel Bento!
It’s not surprising that someone who assisted Gary Card in his set design throughout University has turned out to be fantastic at it himself. Miguel Bento studied performance design at St Martins and has graduated with a ripe sense of storytelling that weaves throughout his work. In this particular project, Miguel has taken each item of clothing and broken it down to it’s simplest geometric form so that the plinth it stands upon (or hovers above) reflects its anatomy, personality and form. Clever man.
