Photographer Ryan Croxton and stylist Janina Gruber collaborate on a exclusive fashion portfolio considering nostalgia and the disorienting transition a person makes from their younger to older years. The story focuses upon scenes from a child’s life—riding down a playground slide, feeding a slice of bread to the neighborhood ducks, and sitting on his grandpa’s lap—all the while representing a style development from juvenile to professional. The evolution involves trial and error from mis-tied ties to blazers as capes, or a backwards sweater with the tag sticking out as he reveals himself to be not quite ready for adulthood.
