Safe Secrets

23 September 2015

"Amongst the old trees, I know my secrets are safe and never bothered...” - Marty King

Let the spirit of adventure set the tone. As the rustling of the trees along the path leave whispers of the wind. The secrets that they have heard, the secrets they will hold. Secrets of adventure, that will forever remain untold.

The forest green eyes of Michael mesmerise, capturing your desire to know the untold secrets of this boy. Take a walk through the unfamiliar streets and parks of London with photographer Paola Vivas, who intimately captures the shyly, cheeky portraits of Michael at MILK Model Management. As Paola mixes colour and black & white frames, with the use of the fresh woodland surroundings and natural lighting, the story unfolds as you discover through light hearted expressions and playful shots more about the boy in the visuals. At least we believe so.

For style Gabriella Stival mixes up classic English brands and sportswear looks with more tailored pieces from the likes of Peter Jensen and Libertine Libertine, as well as featuring matching denim pieces, classic English sportswear by Umbro and tongue-in-cheek wear by Na-Di Studio to give a more relaxed vibe.

Comfortable in the trees that London parks provide amongst it's urban setting, the secrets of Michael remain a riddle for a little while longer.
