PUNK BEN STIFT

Ponyboy goes PUNK! Our fashion editor, Maria Ayala, dressed the 18 year old Hungarian Ben Stift from Fusion Models NY in custom Christian Benner distressed t-shirts and studded leather jackets. Our mantra “LIVE FAST, DIE YOUNG” comes, of course, from one of our favorite Circle Jerk’s songs. Ben is wearing amazing jeans from Helmut Lang, Top Man and Diesel Black Gold. We were pleased to have art direction and men’s grooming by the very creative Walton Nunez, a Los Angeles transplant who was very familiar with the California punk look and lifestyle.

CHRISTIAN BENNER

NEW YORK CITY 1977

At the Christian Benner A/W 2014 Collection at Pier 59 Studios in New York City, we saw exactly what we had expected from Mr. Benner – and we loved it! The theme for his debut runway collection was “New York City 1977”, which is a look we adore at Ponyboy. The Nancy Spungeon aesthetic never looked so good – dark eyes, black hosiery, and the most exquisite custom studded leather jackets and distressed punk rock t-shirts. It’s obvious to us that Christian Benner is extremely passionate about his creations, as we see them as pure, wearable art. Our favorite jacket had small handwriting scrawled all over it, as if printed that way. It is very young and very rebellious; so we understand why both rockstars and celebrities flock to snap up his pieces. We highly anticipate future collections by the talented Mr. Benner.
