Opening Ceremony Superlatives

September 8th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Just in time for back-to-school, Opening Ceremony and Re:Quest Model Management have teamed together to offer a witty look at the season ahead in a new editorial the shop launched on its website today. Shot by Isabel Asha Penzlien, “Roll Call” pays reference to high-school archetypes and the dreaded tradition of class photos, although that yearly trial by fire might have been less traumatic if we had the racks of Opening Ceremony to dress from. Jake Schultz looks clean-cut in a Boy Scout-inspired look from the house’s own line, and stylist Kindall Almond pulls from the other labels on offer at the store to clothe the guys, from established favorites like Kyle Mobus and Lucas Cristino to new faces like Tre Samuels and Alex Treutel, all of them dressed up like memorable characters from the high school scene, with Liam Little as the prom king.

Take a first look at the story below, and visit their site for the rest of the images.
