The Haruki Horikawa ‘Catch Me If You Can’ photo shoot puts a strong focus on retro styles that exude a certain British flair that is oh-so-60s.

The famed fashion photographer takes a stark approach to traditionally vibrant styles by using a monochromatic color scheme and filter to give the shoot a much more solemn tone. While many of the pieces featured draw influence from the British Invasion, the clothing also incorporates accents that are reminiscent of punk culture like fingerless leather gloves with spikes and tight chrome-accented leather jackets.

Additionally, the models are finely groomed, which gives off an air of elegance against contrasting styles that are usually associated with long hair and grungy guys. The bold use of shadow further creates an eerie, futuristic feeling throughout the set with the monochromatic fashions.
