On the run
A thug, a crook, a gangster, a man whose lifestyle is made of infractions… this one is rather a little yobbo. A stray scoundrel, a pickpocket, a rascal armed with razorblades, stealing to drink and clothe. Living in this waste ground, labyrinth of detritus which have become his marked territory over time. Desocialized, sour, stay away from him or he will draw his weapon in a split second. When he is not pickpocketing, he spends endless minutes gazing upon this wide empty area standing in front of him, staring at the few onlookers with his sharp eye, gulping down adulterated drinks trying to feel warm. He has spotted a new victim. Damn! It looks like he picked to wrong person…
Extracting from the obstacle to his freedom, he’s taking to his heels with a sharp move. Running for his life, pulling himself up a wall – yes, it’s sport! He has now lost his pursuer, a peace officer. He doesn’t care about the peace, the only thing that matters right now is to find some place to stay for the night. It’s been a while he doesn’t feel a shell-shocked or the adrenaline anymore, he will sleep peacefully tonight.
“For this look, I took out my two year old APC jeans, those we used for the article about how to wash raw jeans. I am wearing a black leather Perfecto jacket as well, in a comtemporary revisited version compared to the original, without a belt. Under that is an animal printed shirt, still in dark shades to leave all the attention on the jacket. At my feets, for lack a pair of boots to give a more “biker” atmosphere, I used my old pair of Vans to add the outfit some color. The accessories, the trinkets and the bandana, were evident as they fitted perfectly to this look.”
