So, Nowadays we hear the word GUN and automatically associate it with crime, war and death to shortlist a few? However whilst undertaking some research for a current project I am working on looking at military influenced trends I came across some serious! “fashion fire arms”

M-​​60E4 7.62x51 NATO



It’s so easy to forget that the powerful aesthetic and presence that a gun has when channelled (or in some cases CHANEL’ed) in a non aggressive, highly creative way.

Whilst many would argue that these images are unacceptable and should be banned?

Others can appreciate the artistic and creative way in which they are used? "The vision is in the eye of the beholder, as is the intention in which you decide to use it!?"

This is purely about the visual and is in no way shape or form advocating
– nobody came to any harm in the process of putting this together.
