PHOTOGRAPHY: “AUSTRALIA” BY MARK SEGAL

More often than not when a fashion shoot takes place within a natural environment, the photographer (or to be fair, the Art Director), doesn’t quite manage to capture that intrinsic synergy between the subject & their surroundings or show it within the final product, despite having fulfilled the creative brief & concept by producing a set of eye-catching images of this seasons finest. For me personally, that connection means everything.

Marc Segal marries Man (in this case Jarrod Scott) & Land (in this case his homeland Australia) so perfectly, that our slightly primitive & rather handsome model literally becomes one with the rugged landscape in the Australia editorial featured in the latest Vogue Hommes International, Spring/Summer 2014.

Dutch male model Teunis Fernand Heukels or Ton Heukels to you and I, cover’s Issue 6 of Odda magazine in a gorgeous neoprene graphic sunset sky print tee from Calvin Klein’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

Perfection!

THE DESIGNER STEAL V

When I stumble across gorgeous items such as today’s Designer Steal, I almost cry. Firstly it’s that awkward time of the month – nearly (but not quite) pay day – Secondly I’m trying to save to find a Maison for my Margiela & thirdly I don’t really need it, nor do I feel the need to own an iPad, but I just REALLY need it…

Here’s today’s beautifully made accessory from foraging The Unconventional website.

Without meaning to throw any palm tree shade (no Prada pun intended), I’ve grown to like this campaign, the same however can’t be said for model  subject.
