Midnight Studios x Steve Emberton

For the uninitiated like myself Midnight Studios is an American-based fashion label founded in 2012, that combines music, art, and youth culture into a classic black-and-white aesthetic. For AW15 the label presents a collection made up of t-shirts, a twill shirt, a rider jacket a hooded sweatshirt and a poncho all of which feature images by punk-era photographer Steve Emberton.

Though Emberton’s name may be unfamiliar to some, his images surely are not. Label designer Shane Gonzales has chosen Emberton's most famous and frequently used work for the collection, photos of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen taken at their Maida Vale home in January of 1978. Images from this shoot were notably selected for Rolling Stone Magazine's 50th Anniversary Of Rock, Fifty Greatest Portraits Issue and the Met's Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition, the correlation between music and fashion reinforcing the ethos of Midnight Studios. 

The collection is available directly from MIDNIGHT STUDIO and UK boutique EJDER. Listen to the story of the shoot told by Emberton himself as you browse the collection below.
