editorialesque » marlon teixeira for gq style china
by Jeremy Danté
through the lens of dusan reljin, marlon teixeira appears for the SS11 issue of GQ style china. styled by sean spellman, the denim doused editorial spread showcases on teixeira is raw form- masculinity enhanced. as a lover of black & white photography, i love the aged feel that this spread gives off & i love how well that fits alongside the denim pieces that were selected. high end editorial is all about focusing elements of photography & correctly aligning those elements with style quality- both of which are greatly represented here. represented by wilhelmina models, marlon is of brazilian ethnicity & is a stand out in this new age of male modeling. physically, marlon’s facial features tap into the model market of ‘boyish features’ while his body is an ode to classic masculinity- a perfect combination it seems. marlon’s been seen everywhere from campaign’s with armani to the cover of vanity teen- versatility is one skill he has possessed since he began modeling in 2008.
