In the early 1990s a number of photographers began to shape a new style of fashion photography inspired by the authentic street style of a diverse and multi-racial youth culture.

Evans collaborated with stylist Simon Foxton on this series of portraits of young black men dressed as 'country gents'. Evans later wrote: 'Strictly was a weird mixture of macho clothes and quite effeminate clothes. Sportswear-based but classical English things, turned around. The syntax of clothes was completely upside down, and then, worn by black people, it was a new vision of Britain. We were trying to break down stereotypes.'
