Walker's 'Visible' campaign uses Kenyan machinists, cutters, tailors, production managers and metal workers as models.

"Youth forced us to make friends," wrote new modern life blogger, Lee Suckling. "When we were kids, we rode around on bikes (well, we did in the 90s) and talked to anyone else on two wheels. We went to high school and were trapped in smelly rooms for six hours a day, so we passed notes and played sports and spent our nights chatting to each other on MSN Messenger. University rolled around and we drank, and drank, and drank together. And spent the odd night in the library thinking about drinking together. Then we got older. We became aware of the concept of appropriateness. It was no longer okay to walk up to someone and say, 'Nice Nikes. Wanna play at my house?'"
