The 2012 Neighborhood Spring/Summer Collection smashes the competition. The lookbook is featured in Canadian culture and lifestyle publication Inventory Magazine, styled by Stephen Mann and photographed by Neil Bedford. The unison between the fashion line and the creative team works together seamlessly. The imaginative approach to representing the menswear line provides a punkish portrait for the potential buyer.

The models position their faces and bodies smashed against see-through surface. The pressed-up concept can often be construed as amateurish as it is reminiscent of a photocopier prank. Yet, the aesthetics of these photographs are emphasized by the contrasting black and white palette that works to keep the collection looking professional. The impeccable attention to detail leaves the entire collection smudge-free while drawing in the viewer. Stats for Squashed Surreal Editorials Trending: Older & Mild
