Mister Mort and Ryan McGinley on Levi's cords by Opening Ceremony

Levis x Opening Ceremony Mister Mort 01


In his typical off-beat, quirky fashion, Mordechai Rubinstein of Mister Mort models four colors of the Levi's x Opening Ceremony corduroy collections in monochrome suits. (You know where I stand on the subject.)


Levis x Opening Ceremony Mister Mort 02


With beanie and a completely unaware teddy.


Levis x Opening Ceremony mustard


Mustard: a good color to rough it in shorts.


Levis x Opening Ceremony Mister Mort 03a


Of course, can we miss out on the immaculate monochrome ethic?


Levis x Opening Ceremony Mister Mort 03b


The buttons (the designs are based on the 505) are enough accessory.


Levis x Opening Ceremony moss green


Moss green jacket. I know cords are too hot for the tropics, but jeans in very thin ribbing can be very useful for adding texture to an outfit — in the latter, cooler months, that is.


Levis x Opening Ceremony Mister Mort olive


Levis x Opening Ceremony Mister Mort 04


In turquoise. No toy companion. Replaced by apache chief.


Levis x Opening Ceremony aqua


Though this, and many other shades of green, went into currency a short time back, rendered in cords gives the shade a retro feel.


Levis x Opening Ceremony Mister Mort 05


Mr. Mort's teddy, he says, is made out of shirt patches. A very important style note: no belt.


Levis x Opening Ceremony Mister Mort 06


His fedora collection most probably comes in more colors than the clothes that he models.


Levis x Opening Ceremony rose


Is this the color rose? Just image all the dark, serious hues you can match it with. Of course, you need more than one to overpower it.




So let's end with a video by photographer Ryan McGinley. Youth as raw as the fabric, and of course, as witnessed jumping, in flight, in the "wilderness", and in awkward innocence. Retro indeed.
