Trading Places: cinema’s most iconic characters through a high fashion lens

David Ralph's role reversal for HUNGER 14.

For this season’s spectacular collections, photographer David Ralph with womenswear editor Kim Howells and menswear editor Stevie Westgarth took the looks to new heights in a gender-bending extravaganza. Entitled Trading Places, the shoot took inspiration from iconic characters on the silver screen and reversed roles. Think a Bond babe power suiting Givenchy-style… Or Jerry Maguire’s “Show me The Money”, but make it fashion. We’re breaking down gender barriers one Palm Angels tracksuit at a time, and it’s never looked so good. From Jackie Brown in Vivienne Westwood to Norman Bates in Prada, the shoot brings together some of the best looks in cinematic history and some of the most captivating trends of Spring/Summer 2018. For HUNGER TV, we’ve mashed up Ralph’s shoot with the OG screen icons, to whisk you into the movie magic… Scroll on down now.
