New Photo Mission: Buffalo Soldier

By EyeEm Team - 2 min read

Join us as we explore this fashion movement with Ben Sherman in this newest mission

Our second mission with Ben Sherman is to celebrate their forthcoming collaboration with Alpha Industries. Deeply inspired by the Buffalo culture of 1980s London, the style is all about self expression, rebellion and a fearless creative spirit.

Buffalo is all about mixing up cultures, celebrating diversity and being fearless. It was one of the first fashion houses to use models from ethnic backgrounds, which is partly why it became a favorite of the likes of Neneh Cherry and Bob Marley. To honor the famous song, our new mission is simply called Buffalo Soldier.

Your Mission: Capture examples of edgy fashion, urban styles, mixed up cultures, fearless self expression and rebellious fashion choices. Buffalo style is about celebrating diversity, so be bold and brave!

Your Reward: The top three photos which best embody the spirit of Buffalo style will each win their very own Ben Sherman shirt. The top 15 images will also be featured in an EyeEm Image Collection.

Deadline: September 7, 2015
