Beyond The Shade

28 October 2015

His powerful stances, structures of courage and formations of confidence. No longer a boy, but a young man. Meet Will at Premier Model Management. Absent his boyish face and childhood freckles, instead an invitation into adulthood. The seasons change, a metamorphosis begins.

Photographer Paola Vivas is back on your screens, and beautifully captures this sequence; shooting in a range of black and white and full colour. Strong portraits: a signature of Paola’s, and this series is no exception. Taking advantage of late summer before it lets go completely, she teases you with her candid and honest images.

Stylist Sasha Hilton transforms Will into an early gentleman mixing shirts, waistcoats and handkerchief elements with contemporary bomber jackets and Reebok trainers. Injecting an autumnal colour palette, layering graphic stripe and checkered prints of vivid oranges and yellows. Minimal designs from Libertine Libertine are juxtaposed with pieces from Puma, creating a peculiarly right balance of eclectic boyishness.
