In the second chapter of Jade Danielle Smith’s exploration into the young minds of Denon, Martins, and Mackenzie – Jade and the boys tackle the inevitable question haunting mid-teens: “Am I happy?”. In the form of an exclusive Boys by Girls short film, Between Smoke and Summer follows the boys, offering glimpses into their worlds, homes, and mindsets. BBG digital fashion editor, Nathan Henry, decorates the boys in SS19 relaxed fits – with focus on the English lad.

In the search for happiness, it’s inevitable to encounter the other side of the spectrum: melancholia, anger, frustration, numbness, complacency… A prerequisite to finding happiness is perhaps being stuck in the middle. Left feeling that you’re somewhere in-between – and not yet quite settled on which road to choose. On the journey to find meaning, perhaps you start questioning what your path is, where happiness lies – without getting any closer to solving the middle riddle. You watch as confusion triumphs, somewhere between alone and together.
