"Heaven" in GQ Style China #1

This shot is from an editorial--"Heaven"--by Sean Spellman, featuring model Jonathan Marquez, in the first GQ Style China, snapped by photographer Dusan Reljin. The desert setting is awesome and wearing a trench with underwear in such a setting creates an intriguing scene. See more of this shoot HERE as well as more from GQ Style China #1 on Morphosis.

Men of Calibre

With so many options out there, brands have to work harder to get their products shown. I'm enjoying Calibre's efforts with their "Man of Calibre" project: guys can submit pics of themselves in their Calibre and be featured on the brand's site. Check out the project in the video below, or see more of the "men of Calibre HERE on their site.

Unbounded AWE by LayKuni

Some fantastic work coming from designer LayKuni (Won Jung Ku) for the label Unbounded AWE. Just slightly "out there" but with a controlled hand--the pieces are nicely done, tight designs. I'm enjoying the choice of color pallete, stripes/blocks, and some great boots, too. See more from the AWE 2011 A/W collection HERE.

Antonio Azzuolo-f/w 11

I enjoy Antonio Azzuolo's designs because they are a bit playful, yet simple, youthful, and classic--a great mix. The sweaters and pants are fantastic, and how can you not appreciate the over-the-top furry collar? The gloves and sunglasses are great accessories as well. See more Azzuolo's f/w 11 collection on his site HERE.

Subfusco: Fall 2012

Subfusco, designed by Joshua Scacheri, presents "The Odyssey" for the label's Fall 2012 collection. I enjoy it for the minimalist factor and intriguing angles. See more HERE on this.hearts.on.fire.

Lukasz Stepien f/w 11 Coat

I'm enjoying the black accents and even the extra flap behind the lapel--maybe a pocket?--on this coat by Lukasz Stepien as a part of his f/w 11 collection. It's classic with that military touch that I like so much. See more of the collection HERE on Fashionisto.

I'm enjoying the sense of independent spirit coming from the pieces from InAisce below. The coat is from the f/w 11 collection and the jacket from the s/s 11 collection. I like the asymmetry of both and the overall mood delivered throughout both collections. See more HERE on the InAisce site.

Margiela Pants by Richard Pier Petit

Richard Pier Petit shot Justin Gaston in these great pants by Martin Margiela with a light print/texture to them. See more of the shoot HERE on RPP's site. Just a note on Margiela's site: it has an old school, early internet aesthetic (purposely, of course) so don't be thrown.

Undergear-Summer 2011

I'm enjoying the slight slit on the thigh of these underwear from Undergear's Summer 2011 lookbook. Something different--bit of a spartan feel with the slit--yet still with the support you need. See more pieces from the lookbook HERE on YVY.
