The edgy 'Leather Man' editorial by Mark Kean stars Next model management's new face Billy. The model sports a platinum blonde buzz cut by Ben Jones and a leather-enriched wardrobe that takes cues from the wild west. Structured silhouettes and tailored separates are paired with quirky fringed vests, leather cuffs and casual kicks.

Billy rocks all-leather ensembles along with plaids, cottons and knits from designer labels including pieces from Burberry Brit, Polo Ralph Lauren, DSQUARED, Levi's, Adidas, Kenzo and Harley Davidson. This leather-clad pictorial fuses urban street-wear, luxury menswear and vintage biker classics, blending them into an edgy editorial wardrobe.

Bold silhouettes and dynamic shapes make for a memorable photo series that is fashion forward with a vintage inspiration. Sporty and relaxed pieces are paired with heavier textiles that have more structure, juxtaposing unlikely pieces and making them work with one another.
