Neophate: A Clayton Wheeler Collection

Hairdresser Clayton Wheeler—he was a L’Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy London finalist in 2013—has returned home to Australia to reconnect with his original team under a new brand aesthetic. His latest collection, Neophyte, captures an East London vibe through a series of looks that could be seen on any number of young people sauntering around Shoreditch. From diehard East Londoners to bohemian activists with a little middle-class gentrification thrown into the inspirational mix, this story brings street style into a tightly cropped and beautifully polished frame.
