Gunslinging cowboys of the wild west trade in pistols for hairdryers in the Takeshy Kurosawa Spring/Summer 2012 campaign shots. Captured by Italian photographer Simon, the lookbook stars Lewis Grant as the bad boy in plaid, armed with a bottle of whiskey and posing in a rundown motel room. Walking the fine line between edgy and playful, Lewish showcases some of the line's hottest looks of the season, with the help of stylist Alex Vaccani.

While many designers are going the way of bold prints and vibrant colors for menswear this year, Takeshy Kurosawa stays true to its classic denim spirit, but creates an ultra-cool "urban cowboy" look with modern accessories and a mix of textures and patterns. Proving that you don't have to sacrifice fashion in order to maintain a rugged bad boy look, the Takeshy Kurosawa Spring/Summer 2012 collection is the perfect combination between casual street style and runway-ready looks.
