With their beady eyes fixed on street casting, graphic design and art direction, Studio BOYO - the brainchild of Patrick Waugh and Joel Bough – is bringing a bucket-load of new to fashion.

Profiled in i-D’s Dreams and Aspirations Issue, collaborating with Consultant Fashion Director, Simon Foxton, and generally causing a sartorial stir with every step they take, Studio BOYO has gone from strength to strength in its short time in business. Here we present the boyos in partnership with damsel duo, Leonn Ward and Luci Ellis. An expert eye for casting, the shoot introduces three fresh-faced, street scouted chaps that bring an exciting honesty to the images. Inspired by their mutual love of hip-hop, Leonn tells i-D online, “corner liquor boys are the lick right now”, and with that they’ve whipped out this cracking set of snaps. Oh and the soundtrack to the shoot? Peso by ASAP Rocky. Tune in. Poise mouse. Browse.
