Fall's dipping temperatures and the end of summer can make anyone glum, and rising talent Bastiaan Van Gaalen showcases that spirit (or lack thereof) well in this ad campaign for Zara Fall Winter 2011.

Appropriately titled 'Zara The Mood,' this campaign was photographed by David Sims and features mostly black and white shots. Possessing a somewhat melancholy and gloomy air, Bastiaan Van Gaalen models some of Zara's finest menswear for the season, including soft knit turtlenecks, wool pantsuits, polished trousers and a refined winter coat with an exaggerated collar. Of the few captures that include color, a printed paisley shirt in soft blue and a maroon blazer stand out as coveted pieces for men's fashion this fall.
