Male Model Scene's 'Heart of Darkness' editorial boasts moody and melancholy portraits of model Liviu Scortanu. Lensed in the heart of Tokyo, this series captures an unexpected and surprisingly quiet side of the booming urban center.

Model Liviu projects a melancholy attitude in this series that graces the February 2016 issue of Male Model Scene's print publication. The series is captured by photographer Bernd Mats and highlights a wardrobe of contemporary menswear pieces with an Eastern design inspiration.

Highlighting silk kimonos, loose capes and oversized tunics, Heart of Darkness features fashions from a number of emerging labels. They include Hussein Chalayan Awning, Tokyo Tower by Natsuki Shigeta and Attachment among other names. Overall, Heart of Darkness lives up to its dramatic name and spotlights dark imagery that is juxtaposed with fashion-forward clothing picks.
