Last week we were asked to take part in the Bench ‘Love My Hood’ project. Since establishing as a brand in the late 1980’s the hood as been an integral part of the Bench brand. To celebrate this Bench have created a global campaign; ‘Love My Hood.’ Focusing on the blogger’s importance in today’s fashion landscape 16 UK bloggers have been invited to be photographed and illustrated by 4 artists and photographers.
Andrew Khozravani, a South London based illustrator and animator who’s past clients include Dazed & Confused, Slam City Skates and Wu Tang Clan, amongst others
Dominic Marley who can count Nike, Redbull and Carhartt among the pages of his photography portfolio
Sussex based creative and illustrator Rebel Yuth aka John Ryan Speed, who brings music culture to life through his intricate line drawings
and Stew Capper portrait photographer and proud contributor to NME, Article and Vice Magazine.
The private view launch will be taking place on Thursday 20th November
The project is also running alongside a #Lovemyhood competition which has a great prize package (weekend trip to a European city) Check out the #Lovemyhood competition in conjunction with the project here- http://www.lovemyhood.me
