For our second guest post for Details Magazine, we decided to look back on a few great films of 2011. It’s the look for less: the idea of taking something that styling crews shelled out hundreds for and recreating it for pennies on the dollar. This isn’t necessarily dress-up; it’s just a little inspiration.
A common thread amongst the films was one man. Ryan Gosling. Enter the Gos.
Okay, he couldn’t make it for the shoot. So, I rolled out of bed and stepped in.
With the deadline approaching, we phoned our main man, Anthony Barlich, to make shit happen.
And he did. See for yourself:
Drive: Badass leather jacket, driving gloves and a ratty, old henley. You’ve got those, now make it happen.
Ides of March: Politics, schmolitics. Dirty scandals, clean looks. Keep it secret, keep it safe. I also don’t own a grey suit, so you gotta make do with what you have.
(Special thanks to Chicago for being beautiful at sunset)
Once again, Major eProps to Anthony for the photography for this project with Details. Also, a big bear hug to Mallory for being the lighting queen. She can hold a light longer than one of those schmucks on Survivor standing on a totem pole for a piece of chocolate.
Seriously, y’all. Anthony makes it happen.
Also, Can we pause and talk about this bookshelf print top? I want that in a button down.
He’s mad talented—far more than we ever were in undergrad—and earned his spot at RISD. It’s no surprise that he’s at one of the top schools for design studying graphic design and photography.
“Between my freshman year uniform of basketball shorts and hoodies and the over-saturated preppy, country club wannabes, I had to break out and develop my own sense of style.”
“My whole thing is simplicity. I think that also stems from my artwork, but it’s definitely what I would describe my style as if I had to choose a word. It’s this relatively small mix of simple items that are going to last, like my denim, boots, Barbour, etc. I definitely don’t wear many bright colors. I’m a neutral guy, keeping it simple with browns, greys, and mostly navy blue.”
“The whole point is to get better, push yourself and your creativity. Once I got into it, I got addicted to it. The feeling of capturing a photo a day that portray emotions on what I was feeling that day, or hell, even a cool thing to look back on, was enough to keep me going. I was tested in my patience to take the time to do it each day and try new concepts that I developed.”
