To Be Red model Emil stars in 'Smalltown Boy,' an editorial that is captured for edgy style publication F****** Young! Online. The photo series boasts a digitized and artistic component, juxtaposing traditional photography with imagery that appears blurred and distorted.

Photographer Monika Kmita captures 'Smalltown Boy' and works alongside stylist Gabi Gnat. Gnat dresses model Emil in a normcore-themed wardrobe, consisting of thrifty staples like vintage washed jeans and oversized trench coats. The model also pulls off basketball varsity jackets and layered denim pairings that evoke a nostalgic vibe.

This digitized menswear editorial features grooming by Ilona Gmochowska and is created in partnership with Tomasz Malka, who is responsible for its bold and eye-catching graphic design motifs.
