Freestyle skateboarder Kilian Martin gets stylishly playful for the latest 'Man About Town' Issue 7. The shoot for this autumn/winter issue was photographed by Karim Sadli and channels a late 1950s feel, complete with cropped pants and colored socks.

Accompanying the shoot for 'Man About Town' Issue 7 is a poetically beautiful video, directed by Stylianos Pangalos. Martin's masterful use of the skateboard portrays exactly how professional and smooth he is on the streets.

Implications - Using well known figures in advertising is a great method for businesses to attract customers to their brand.
