Luc Jhugroo stars in 'Traces of Traces,' a modern surrealism editorial that is lensed by photographer Jiajie Lin. The face from D1 Models boasts an edgy and contemporary wardrobe that consists of draped and boxy coats and trousers that are adorned with abstract prints.

Styling for this F****** Young! Online editorial is courtesy of Ali Efe Ekmekci who dresses model Luc in menswear staples from Givenchy and Raf Simons among other names. Borrowing from artists like Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte, this surrealism editorial distorts model imagery with added elements of objects and painted brush strokes.

The result is a series of fashion collages that challenge common perceptions. In an effort to stand apart from competing publications, emerging magazines are referencing art and pop culture as a theme behind their unique stories.
