Morning casts through a window on the sunny coast of springtime LA, catching dust as it shimmers and dances in the light. Behind glass panes, the room fills with warmth, but a crisp, cool day waits outside. It’s one of those days where you throw on a jacket and some trainers and wander without a purpose - just to breathe the spring air and let the sun wash over your skin. Guy Duplantier revels in this day. He can take it at any pace and just be content. It’s a day that is completely his.

Shaira Luna wanders with Guy, from his living room and out onto the streets of LA. She captures the west coast sun as it falls on Guy’s auburn curls, and drops shadows across his averted eyes. The geometry of the suburban landscape - from stairways to sidewalks - complements the stripes in Fernando Pichardo’s styling, and contrasts with soft natural light and pastel architecture. The SS18 styles nod to the 1950s, hinting that moments like these are simply timeless.

Through intimate close-ups and angular long shots, Shaira, Guy and the team take us through moments of playfulness, peace, and contentment. Like they could walk, wander and explore until the sunset spreads a pink hue across the sky - and the final dapples of light fade beneath the trees.
