throughout my much of my high school life, i was heavily into the styling of details magazine; in an effort to discover more of my true self & in turn, my true style. i’ve always had a preference for personal appearance & really view personal style as a form of art unto itself. accepting a distinction of what i had liked & prefered versus what the other kids were wearing was a process of growth & timeless inspiration. when looking at this editorial, i feel like im back in those days. at that time, i was deciding what i liked & began to really discover my own path of individuality looking for ways to inject my own style into everything i was doing, from the way i spoke, who i was around- even down to my penmanship, my greater goal in life has always been to represent myself as accurately as possible. over time that accuracy & intellectual process has become more natural & more like a second nature to me- it’s now a process that people around me understand & beyond that they respect. this editorial is a clean cut homage to the style direction that i’ve become familiarized with most. clean style, sharp grooming & timeless pieces that stand alone from season to season while not opposing but not bowing to the unforgiving ways of the seasonal trend. through the lens of robbie fimano, the impeccable styling of benjamin sturgill is translated through clean style, smart tailoring & modernized classics in the form of blazers, denim & dress shoes. though simple, i feel that a tremendous amount of style is both seen & felt in this spread. im intensely inspired & understand that there is great value in the details. whether the cut of the jean, the length of danny’s hair, the relaxed fit of the a denim jacket or the jawline on neff- style is everywhere.

represented by IMG, julia stegner appears in her feature editorial for the pages of vogue germany. shot for the may issue by greg kadel, with styling by christine arp, stegner appears bronzed & exposed to the sun, using male models as props while dresses in evening wear in the middle of the desert. the fringe, the fur, the animal print- it was all very glamourous & well balanced with the rugged elements of the shoots surrounding- metal, punching bags, combat boots, male models & all. i am very attracted to the concept of using male models as props, in female editorial- it’s a statment of sorts. in most professions, males are thought off as the dominating force- from the rap game, to the football field to the board room; women have been widely known to struggle in aspects of business, having the deal with discrimation & underpay in certain industries, to some degree; but in fashion, the female rules. fashion is dominated by women; designer are inspired by feminine poise & the glossed pages of millions of magazines across the world glamourize the idea of being a woman- a fearless woman, one who isn’t afraid to take charge & talk shit while dressed to the nines. i feel that being reflected in this spread. love.

represented by next models ny, karlie kloss appears editorially for the pages of vogue china. shot by patrick demarchelier for the may issue, kloss serves as a living mannequin in mid-motion slapped with some of spring greatest graphic printed pieces. puzzled houndstooth from balenciaga & those irresistable stripes from prada- kloss is seen channeling a bit of masculine style edge in a black bobbed wig throughout the spread, which appears lively as ever despite it’s being on a greyed studio backdrop. with styling by nicoletta santoro, i love the concept of presenting graphics & noticed much of this trend on the runway. ranking as fashion’s no. 4 female model, kloss is one of the youngest & best models in the game.
