TAKING IT TO THE STREETS
“The inspiration for Bed Head this year is all about finding people that really have their own individual styles," says legendary photographer and TIGI International Creative Director Anthony Mascolo. Keeping that top of mind when shooting the brand's new campaign—seen exclusively on these pages—Mascolo and the TIGI International Creative Team brought in models who already had a very strong look of their own rather booking models whose look required a complete change. "When shooting, we went for an urban kind of feel and gave the shots an Instagram feel," says Mascolo. "Things are seen today in a completely different way than just a photographic collection or a little commercial. The looks are edgier and truly capture what's going on in the world of fashion today." —Kelley Donahue
