editorialesque » easy elegance by details

what yo’ name iz? danny schwarz, garrett neff, tyler riggs, vincent lacrocq, vladimir ivanov

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.

editorialesque » zhao lei for vogue hommes japan beauty

zhao lei, represented by wilhelmina models, appears for the spring issue of vogue hommes japan through the lens of ben weller. with hair by tomo jida & styling by shun watanabe, the ‘smooth operator’ themed spread focuses on masculine beauty in the form of flawless skin. one aspect i heavily scrutinize when reviewing beauty shots is the quality of retouching; it’s no secret that high fashion editorial is retouched among many other things that we, as the public, are attracted to. whether you’re zooming in to see pores or if you’re trying to decifer whether or not the make-up ends here & begins there- one things for sure, the concept of men’s beauty will never be as vastly explored as it has been for women. i admire the seen here & applaud the opportunity taken to create a male’s perspective on beauty. good set of images, bold backdrops & yes photoshop.

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.
