Maxime Ballesteros & Co. Went Rogue In New SSENSE Editorial

Scenes from Mexico’s San Miguel de Allende.

SSENSE’s most recent editorial sent Maxime Ballesteros & co. into San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. It was an adventure to behold — “We went everywhere around town on an ATV the days before starting, getting super lost in the suburbs, dirt roads, farmer’s houses, and nature. Getting chased by determined and surprisingly fast stray dogs. Finding some drug lord’s abandoned house. And meeting people like Miguel,” told Ballesteros. Alongside designer Jen Gilpin and model Masumi Rioja — armed with trunks chock-full of Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Marni, Junya Watanabe, and Chloé — impromptu-photoshoots wherever yielded the “rogue” editorial above.

“We went back to shoot at his house later. Miguel was sentenced to jail for 10 years and when we met him had just gotten out after only 10 months, because of a paperwork mistake. He told us that he wished he had stayed in—he apparently liked it much more than being out. All his family kept laughing and smiling the whole time we were there, cooking delicious-smelling dishes.”
