According to Plato, the philosopher’s role in society is to enlighten others with the knowledge necessary to understand the world rather than to remain chained in a cave with a limited perception of reality. To create this philosophical fashion spread for The Fashionisto, photographer Thom Kerr and stylist James Dykes assumed the roles of modern-day philosophers by enlightening us with their knowledge of fashion.

Model Nathan Joliffe was placed in a cave-like setting wearing leather shorts by Junya Watanabe and gladiator sandals by Givenchy. James Dyke also incorporated a wide variety of international labels including Calvin Klein, Chronicles of Never and Zambesi, as well as some personal finds to create sartorially elegant looks fit for a modern-day pupil of Plato.

The photo shoot might only be superficially inspired by Plato's work, but it proves that Thom Kerr and James Dykes don't have a limited perception of fashion.
