Photographer Julien Barbès explores the hidden beauty of inner-city estates and the breaking free of societal ideologies for our latest editorial shoot, “West End.”

Encouraging us to stay wild and creative amid the complicated but beautiful concrete jungles in which we live our lives, we’re presented with a number of daring looks. Stand-out pieces from the shoot include a crisp white J.W Anderson “Orbison” shirt with a huge high-neck collar, and an Atelier New Regime bomber jacket emblazoned with the words “We Learn All Our Gang Shit From The Government.”

The whole shoot encourages us to reclaim our imagination in the face of monotony and no look screams this more than a head-to-toe Xander Zhou outfit, featuring white tracksuit bottoms with a rainbow stripe and an eye-catching oversized red mac coat.

Flick through the shots above and then check out the accompanying video, shot by Martin Mostert, below.
