editorialesque » jacob coupe for numéro homme

shot in black & white for the pages of numéro homme, jacob coupe appears handsomely. represented by VNY, jacob is seen through the lens of anthony maule with styling by samuel françois. sleek & refined, the editorial appears in numéro homme’s summer/spring issue & though simple, speaks greatly to my own appreciation for aesthetics. lighting when concerning photography is everything- a shot is nothing without the proper lighting & here we see jacob highlighted excellently. the intense light contrasts well with the simplicity of the styling as grooming & areas of coupe’s exposed chest allow greater forms of masculinity to be felt. ranking as fashion’s no. 17 male model within the top 50, jacob hails from the united kingdom. you may recognize him from his recent bookings for spring campaigns with both Y-3 & acquascutum. simply stunning.
