TOPMAN features A$AP Rocky-approved Dexter Navy in short film for AW16 Premium Collection
Kicking off the AW16 Premium Collection, a label under its umbrella of Private Label collections, TOPMAN delivers a poignant short film with street sensibility and signature functional style. Set against the backdrop of West London, the film, part of the Private View series, features 25 year old photographer and filmmaker, Dexter Navy. In the film, Navy, who has produced lush visuals for A$AP Rocky, revisits his West London beginnings — taking us through Westbourne Grove, Meanwhile Park, and Trellick Tower. Sharing his connection to his hometown, the artist cites his mother as an integral influence in his career, explains his inspiration behind juxtapositions, and refers to the area he grew up in as a "great mixtape" — an area inundated with vibrant personalities and diversity. Navy asserts that film should transport the viewer to unexpected destinations. Sporting signature pieces from the Premium Line— the ultra-lightweight windbreaker, skinny fit navy cropped trouser, dusty pink hoodie, and a curved peak cap, Navy looks confident and supremely comfortable in his own skin .
