MAN-ic Monday: “Say You’ll Be There” for Fucking Young!

I couldn’t have just one MAN-ic post today… this was just too good.Ever wonder what the Spice Girls would look like as boys?  I’m so jealous I wasn’t able to be the one who worked on this editorial!  I have been wanting to re create this for so long now.  Glad to see they had a good time doing it.  I love this.  LOVE this.  Obsessed with how they took iconic photos from the Spice Girls past and completely remade them.  So awesome.

MAN-ic Monday “Outsiders Game” for Saints Magazine ft. Jimmy Q.

While feeling floaty and trying to figure out some sort of way to bring some good vibes in…

Came across “Outsiders Game” photographed by Olgac Bozalp  Ft. Jimmy Q.  for SAINTS magazine.  (LOVE  saints…)

Bold statements and even bolder colors have always been huge staples in summer fashion.  To the extremes on the oposite end of spectrum for my personal style, but I have a respect for the somewhat bolder statements.  Mixed with pieces from brands Tobefrank and Trine LindegaardDent De Man and shoes from Xander Zhou and Kurt Geiger… This piece lands a transitioning kaleidoscope of summer time vibes.  Being a Fashion Editor myself I am completely drawn to the subtle mixture of texture and patterns and give props to the selection and direction of the tone they are presenting.  Lovin it…

Boyfriend meets MAN-ic: Two Rude Dudes

In the lack of this weeks MAN-ic Monday and the continuation of our Boyfriend Material installment I decided to mix both of these crowd favorites into a post that brings us the best of both worlds …Always obsessed with what my main boyy Dudley is up to, inspired by Novembers piece featuring him and Loammi… capturing an “avant gard grunge” they capture a freedom that delivers a nostalgia to the masses.  Something that ties in our younger days, and seems to play on the evolution of oneself… we find ourselves layering, and gathering texture through industrial styled placement.  Gripping to the edge of our threads and announcing them to the world through a bolder statement presented perfectly here in this November issue of NEO2.

 

Enjoy

MAN-ic Monday: “Wanna Ride” for Attitude Magazine

We all wanna ride…

 

The turns and twists that the daze sets forth from recent editorial for  UK gay online mag…Attitude Magazine…  the complications swiftly followed by a do-able yet bold look.  The constant texture takes over through the bright colors of a day dream.  Finding the trust just in time.

Not always something I dive into with my own personal style, color sure seems to be a staple in this piece.  The fashion seeps from the color block creating imagery through a passion for bold seduction.  Bringing the MAN-ic back for you this Monday!  Enjoy some real manic, have some fun, find a new kind of hope and inspire yourself to be a little more adventerouse this week.
