The Stairway to Heaven

- Smoking pictures and some other inspiration images..... that's all!

I was talking to my friends: the amazing photography duo Sabi + La Noire, and we wanted to do a monstrous photo shoot with some of my garments from my FW11 line mixed with garments of other designers. We also wanted to format this photo shoot in a sequence and in the end, it was decided to make "the loss of innocence" the theme. The story was to present a tabula rasa-ed subject who "has it all" and make him transition to a street of perdition: opposite to the Lao Tse "Way," it is a devouring corrupted way, which in the end is what most mortals would fall into if they were presented with something enticing or addicting. To project our view, we went with something so cliche' regarding addiction: smoking.
