Famously photographing the Duke and Duchess of Windsor jumping inches from the ground in perfect time with one-another, Philippe Halsman is the inspiration behind the latest campaign visuals for heritage fashion brand Thomas Pink.

The eccentric Latvian developed the art of capturing people jumping, which he coined Jumpology, following his time working alongside Dali, commenting:

“When you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping and the mask falls so that the real person appears.”

To commemorate this historic picture, we have re-created the look below based on HRH The Duke of Windsor’s impeccable style. We hope Philippe would approve.
