Boldness is standing up for what you believe in. Adventure is making a stand against conformity. Power is standing for something new. The vibrancy of a youthful mind leads to the actions of rebellion; from the untucking of a shirt to challenging a teachers command, the world is unchallenged. Realisations against discomfort pave the way of progress. Rules were made to be broken.
Tie fastened and hair slicked back, in our eight issue, Charlie James at Bananas Models embodies the eccentric culture of the Teddy boy. Surrounded by an atmosphere of greased wit and suave brut, Fanny Latour-Lambert captures sophistication of a rebellious character for Issue 8. The nostalgic, elegant environment of Paris is commanded by Charlie with a slick, effortless style.
A diplomatic mind that stands against established order is presented in a style that exudes intelligence. Benoit Martinengo capitalises upon the suave pride that comes with looking good. Featuring the luxury of Burberry, Lanvin and Ermenegilido Zegna, the fastidious styling is seductively refined.
The persona of a troublesome boy who clashes against conformity can be seen in full across a 10-page editorial inside our new issue 8, “The Trouble With Boys” which is available to buy now in shops and online.
