Gosha Rubchinskiy: Top Man

Russian fashion designer and photographer Gosha Rubchinskiy has shot Topman’s Christmas advertising campaign and video. A London warehouse-like setting with models posing against rough, exposed brick walls or on broken, uneven pavement was the scenario chosen for this famed Moscow-based, post-Soviet, streetwear designer’s shots. The video also keeps Gosha's industrial aesthetic alive, with male models showing off grungy, dishevelled looks in new coats, jackets, and shirts.
