Inspired by Peter Doyle’s book Crooks Like Us, which documents the lives of Sydney’s most notorious in the 1920s. In a series of extraordinary images, the book explores the lives of suspected cocaine dealers, murderers, and miscreants, who inhabit the shady underworld of Sydney. Oki-Ni present their latest STYLED by feature.
Working closely with acclaimed stylist, tailoring specialist, and style journalist Tom Stubbs, this shoot blends this nefarious period inspiration with modern-day tailoring pieces. Shot by Bevan Agyemang with art direction from Pete Hellyer, the result is a collection of photographs with an intriguing split personality: both timeless and modern, filled with posturing and presence, it is a rogues gallery of miscreants, resplendent in their refined tailoring.
Tom Stubbs works for FT How To Spend It, The Rake, The Sunday Times Style, GQ and his own styleanderror.co.uk
