'Trainspotting,' A Menswear Editorial Shot by Helen Eriksson
The JMZ is not just a convenient alternative to the L train—it also makes a solid background for a shoot. Step into a Brooklyn world inhabited by lanky, crushworthy dudes, the kind with a lo-fi band and a longboard. They’re vague over texting but charming in person, and they live in giant apartments despite being creatively unemployed. We’ve all been there. These boys aren’t necessarily good news, but they’re kind of irresistible.
Shot by Helen Eriksson and styled by Jess Roberts, exclusively for Milk, the clothes are ‘70s-esque, like if Wooderson suddenly packed up and left for New York (he would never, but you know what I mean). Breezy clothes from brands like Maison Kitsuné and Maryam Nassir Zadeh add to the chill vibe, in addition to a dose of real vintage. Check out it out for tips on how to style your next manfriend.
