If I were to play a word association game with things from The Wire, the last thing I’d associate with it is high fashion. So I was more than a little surprised to see Jamie Hector and Felicia Pearson – who play Marlo and Snoop – in this weekend’s Guardian sporting Prada and Paul Boateng. On the plus side, it did give me an excuse to pimp the show -which is the greatest TV show ever – to anyone within earshot. A bit like how I’m pimping it now.
The shoot itself was ok but it could have been better. For one, there was an over reliance on blazers and t-shirts, which just look terrible together. Felicia Pearson also just looks uncomfortable out of sporty clothing, so it makes for an awkward looking shoot. The best looks were the Y-3 outfits because the subjects looked comfortable in their outfits and the purple Ozwald Boateng suit, which I would consider wearing if I had a spare £895 lying around.
