It’s not every day that you see a riot with a display of high fashion like that shown in Before the Fall by Sharif Hamza.

Riot fashion takes different form in many subcultures, but in Hamza’s Before the Fall, it seems to have militaristic origins with rebellious menswear as its focal point. Featured in VMAN Magazine #22, Hamza’s photography brings groups lashing out and causing civil disorder in style. From fashionable soldier-like hard hats to fashion blazers, pants and jerseys, this is a photo shoot that communicates a bold and fashionable approach to a revolution.

Modeled by Charlie Westerberg, Aiden Andrews, Jules Hamilton and RJ King, the shoot is styled by Jay Massacret, who ensures Hamza’s Before the Fall spread is rebellious yet totally glamorous.
