Rottingdean Bazaar’s Wizard of Oz-themed series for ES Magazine features Giles Deacon and Charles Jeffrey

In a shoot released in this week’s Evening Standard Magazine, menswear duo Rottingdean Bazaar AKA James Theseus Buck and Luke Brook have created a Wizard of Oz-themed shoot featuring some of London’s most prolific names in the fashion industry.

Commissioned by Richard Gray and captured by photographer Lucy Alex Mac, the pair were given the “latest it-bags” to play with resulting in this series shot in London’s Hornsey, Bow and Forest Gate. James and Luke, who both studied at Central Saint Martins, have become well known for their playful and somewhat tongue-in-cheek designs featuring everything from cardboard cutouts of Naomi Campbell on the runway to ketchup sachets and cigarette butts.

With Fashion East’s Lulu Kennedy appearing as the Fairy Godmother, the series also features Matty Bovan as Dorothy, Charles Jeffrey as the Wizard himself and Dilara Findikoglu as the Wicked Witch of the West. Giles Deacon as the tin-man appears in the frame with Jeffrey Hinton as the lion and Julie Verhoeven as the scarecrow. Rounding up the cast of fashion mavericks are Lucas Tate, Adam Leach, Freyja Newsome, Declan Needham, and Daniel AKA toilet.co.uk as the munchkins.
