'Dreams' by Koto Bolofo

After nearly three decades spent photographing fashion for the likes of Vogue, Louis Vuitton and Hermès, Koto Bolofo has now stepped out from behind his camera to launch his first apparel collection with US brand Anthropologie. Bolofo’s intriguing career move was actually inspired by his frustration with the decline in quality fabrics: ‘As a fashion photographer for the past 27 years, I've noticed that the materials used to make the garments have deteriorated through time,’ he says. ‘Nowadays a jumper or a shirt looks great off the peg, but you put it in the wash and it bobbles up. It used to frustrate me during shoots knowing that the fabrics weren't so texturised, and thus not as photogenic.’ THANXS WALLPAPER
