The idea for the book came when O’Toole Collet visited Singapore to shoot for the launch of Dover Street Market Singapore in July 2017. Youths in Balaclava is the photographer’s documentation of the one week he spent with in Singapore with the fashion collective.
The photos see the cohort shot in various settings from eateries to container yards, painting vividly the ennui of youth and the frustration that arises from urban living – which can sometimes be felt more acutely growing up in a place like Singapore.
A commemorative t-shirt (S$90) has been released along with the photobook (S$58), and both retail across Dover Street Market stores.
Keep up with Youths in Balaclava on Tumblr and Instagram.
