The Desillusion Magazine 'This is Dylan' video follows California's professional skateboarder Dylan Rieder. The 10 minute-long short gets into the head of the 24 year old by capturing the day-to-day essence of his life.

Rieder expounds upon his beliefs on corporate skate culture and adolescence in This is Dylan. His speaks of his disdain for sponsorship and remains unabashedly critical of athletes who become branded by emblems. He instead focuses on an existence that is free of the usual trappings, a sentiment that he gained early on as a child who simply wished to be free.

Style is also central to Rieder's now iconic sport persona. The clips show him in minimalist apparel and heavy jewelry, pointing to his eclectic menswear taste. This goes well with Desillusion Magazine's preference for innovative male style.
