We asked creators around the world to interpret the meaning of latitude through the ultimate language of self-expression: fashion. The result? A global tapestry depicting modern-day culture and identity, woven together by threads that feel as universal as they do unique.
“Latitude to me means within the boundaries. Within a concept there are many ways to express—sometimes unexpected, sometimes foreseen, sometimes provoking. We like to look for a mix. The inspiration for this shoot came from a very simple principle: photography without a lens, the most basic [homemade] camera.” Blommers & Schumm
