Cinéma de Mode: Back to the Wild

For this week’s Cinéma de Mode we have the perfect print trend inspiration for the upcoming summer, thanks to the Basement Jaxx‘ brain-wrecking and psychedelic safari video for Back 2 the Wild, directed by Mat Maitland & Natalia Stuyk.

Take a journey to this freaky imaginary land after the jump! Read on…
