Cats And Dogs For Issue 6

8 May 2014
Following on from our previous features to introduce you to the secrets of our newly released Issue 6 "The Truth About Boys", this time we decided to give you another reason to buy a copy - cute boys with cute pets.
There is something really special about the intimate relationship between a boy and his pet. In an 8-page story "Cats & Dogs" photographed by Aline and Jacqueline Tappia, the boys were asked to bring in their pets. Genius right? Elliot Vulliod at Supa Model Management, Max Wallis at Established Models, James at FM Models and twins Ari and Michael at Oxygen Models all brought along their super cute pets. With a casually cool air to the styling, contributing BBG editor and fashion editor extraordinaire Way Perry brought in pieces from Paul Smith, Kurt Geiger and Jean Machine amongst others. Sometimes jeans and a white top is the most powerful of all.
And whilst Tilly manages to make a sneak appearance in the story, model and poet Max Wallis rounds of this series perfectly with an exclusively written poem (it may or may not include a mention of one of his super cute kittens).
To see what really happens when it rains "Cats And Dogs" and see the full editorial, be sure to get your copy of issue 6 to see the full story inside our latest print issue.
