An explosion of sharp architectural cuts and origami-like folded styles are featured in this Surface Asia #7 editorial called 'Exposure.' The shoot features model J Ryan Karsten and is photographed by Luki.

This editorial in Surface Asia #7 is all about contrasting textures and tailoring, combining items like a luxe brocade blazer with a simple button-up shirt, a plastic-looking red harness overtop a sleek all-black ensemble and brassy tubing with a fringed sleeve top and printed silk pants. The cuts and tailoring are magnificent, with one jacket offering an exaggerated collar and a ruffled cape-like look, and a pair of trousers designed with an out-to-there silhouette.

This fantastic photography set showcases incredible styling by Andhika Dharmapermana and grooming by Bunlay. Stats for Architectural Origami Menswear Trending: Older & Warm
