As news of the death of stylist, artist and former model Barry Kamen spreads through the industry, i-D have riffled through the archives to find the most iconic images that he and fellow Buffalos Ray Petri, Mark Lebon and Jamie Morgan created for our fashion pages.

Young creatives with mixed heritages and eclectic references, the Buffalos took inspiration from around the world, blending clothing styles and casting diverse models. "Tough mixed race boys in skirts and a pair of DM boots, utility sportswear with high fashion. Casting girls as boys, kids as men; breaking down boundaries and creating iconic images that changed the fashion industry forever," as Neneh Cherry recently explained in a video about the Buffalo subculture.
