My Hypebeast Essentials


This week was very cool because I was featured on the very very cool Hypebeast Essentials.

I’ve been a regular reader of Essentials for years now and it’s a privilege to be featured alongside so many cool people.

Rather than share my everyday items I wanted to share my work essentials (plus: I don’t have a gold chain, knife or any cool trainers to make my regular stuff cool…)

This is near-as-dammit my regular film kit, plus a few choice extras, and the everyday items I use working at Tens day-to-day.
