Aidan & Vic For Issue 6

2 June 2014

Childhood is a place for beginnings. Far from everything and close to the essentials, you can create your own world. I remember all the heroes I used to look up to as a kid, whether they were fiction, superheroes or family. As we look at ourselves as adults, where did they all go? All those characters and people that used to be role models for us, or had something we admired and looked up to.

Photographer Cecilie Harris took models Aidan Ledward and Vic Van Der Well and her team into the woods, where they had a chance to find their inner child and go back to their roots. Stylist Josh Tuckley, tells the story by bringing in styles including primary colours and playful elements or childlike shapes and elements. The boys are wearing brands such as Issey Miyake, American Apparel, YMC, Ben Sherman, Katie Eary, and Josh manages to create a really young, modern and colourful vibe that fits Aidan & Vic perfectly. Josh Tuckley is also a model (and was previously featured in our second issue). As Josh in addition to his modelling is now also turning to the styling side of things, in true Boys by Girls style, we wanted to throw Josh the challenge of styling one of our shoots for issue 6. This series is the result!

Keep on to some of your heroes, and look to find some new ones. Even as adults we all sometimes need personal heroes and people to look up to. And remember the heroes from your past. Never stop playing. Never stop exploring.

To see the full story of "Where Did All The Heroes Go?" in Issue 6, make sure to get your copy here. We also have an upcoming interview with Josh about his experience styling the shoot, and one with the boys. So much to live for.
