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

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.
