Anton Toftgard stars in 'Love Me,' a nostalgic editorial that graces the pages of Esquire Espana. The image series is photographed by Fernando Uceda and depicts the model as a snake charmer. This chromatic editorial's wardrobe is handpicked by stylist Ildara Cuinas and consists of Gucci's latest menswear collection -- a range boasting jungle prints and a palette of earthy hues.

Drawing inspiration from wildlife, Esquire Espana's Love Me story pairs contemporary menswear pieces with reptilian portraits. The shoot's mix of fashion and wildlife imagery highlights the key inspiration behind Gucci's latest collection. While the luxury brand looks to the natural world for visual inspiration, it replaces traditional animal prints with abstracted and conceptual motifs.
