ADAM agency face Taot stars in "A Kind of Magic", the latest editorial exclusive for web publication F****** Young! Online. The model is captured by photographer Taleen Dersdepanian's lens and outfitted by wardrobe stylist Jonzu Jones.

Jones dresses the model in a number of luxe staples from labels that include Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs and Dolce & Gabbana among others. The menswear looks range from traditional suit sets to edgy shirt garments that play with transparency.

Hair and make-up for the photoshoot is courtesy of Jenny Diaz who creates platinum-hued locks for her model muse. Channeling a modern day magician, Taot juggles a deck of cards and saws himself in half in this illusionary fashion story that plays with a viewer's perception.
