Set Design: Thomas Bird creates a magical abstract temple for Dent de Man

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Super trendy brand Dent de Man know what’s up when it comes to the imagery that accompanies their Javanese and Batik-influenced garments, so they wisely picked set designer Thomas Bird to magic up a backdrop worthy of an 80s music video for their Spring Summer 2014 lookbook. Working to a brief that suggested something “mystical yet current,” Thomas created a set of abstract temples complete with pastel colours, classical sculpture and mottled marble columns to make even the the mandals (man-sandals) a natural fit.

Shot by Marc Hibbert and styled by Tomas C. Toth, the final selection of images is a melting pot of colour, fabric, texture and accessories, pulled together effectively and neatly by Thomas’ soft and impressive overarching themes. Fashion brands take note; this one has some tricks up his sleeve, and God knows a killer collection is nothing without a temple to wear it in.
