The Karl Morall and Sam Bennett for Metal magazine shoot takes fashion cues from the past. The editorial lensed by photographer Paolo Zerbini takes inspiration from history with the models playing the roles of two Ukrainian mental patients.

The edgy editorial displays the controversial subject matter of madness in a subtle way, putting focus on strongly styled looks and messy hair. The guys rock a classic wardrobe, sporting tailored looks and structured silhouettes. Their looks, outfitted by stylist Santi Rodrigues put emphasis on luxurious layering that features warm textiles like knits, wools and tweeds. The guys look classic with a twist rocking outlandish bed-head coifs by Tomihiro Kono.

This striking shoot features a chic and elegant wardrobe fit for a gentleman with grooming that adds interest and gets people talking. The editorial features captivating imagery and addresses taboos in a daring and fearless way. Stats for Splitting Hair Portraits Trending: Older & Mild
