Installation artist Ryan Thomas and feature film director Ryan Andrews have directed a fashion film for i-Donline.com, bringing you the hottest trends from the spring/summer 12 menswear collections. Titled I’m Your Man (after the Leonard Cohen track), the film unfolds in seven scenes and seven looks, and explores the relationship between money, power and the body.
