school rules!


Yesterday I received official confirmation of my place at University of Massachusetts next term (woo!) and as a result my brain was in overdrive as I slept last night, dreaming up the archetypal 'American college' imagery as it lead my overwhelmed parallel self through crowds at baseball games and seas of college scarves and sweaters. So it's nicely appropriate that today I stumbled upon this old editorial from T Magazine shot by Angelo Pennetta and styled by Vanessa Traina, showing a selection of models at their respective places of education, proudly bedecked in college merchandise, peering from under baseball caps and standing on grassy quads.

Congrats! Which UMass are you in? If you're going to Amherst, I'll be in the area since I attend one of the five colleges...:)

Congratulations! Going on exchange was the best thing I ever did (I loved it so much I went twice!). It sounds like you are going to have an amazing time, can't wait to read a bit about it.

This editorial is also really wonderful - school/college wear is always cool in my book.
