With London being the epicenter of the New Aesthetic, it is no surprise that the third issue of SID Magazine features this poetic digital decomposition editorial.

The new publication describes itself as being "free from downmarket advertisers, focusing entirely on portraying strong, youthful and sophisticated aesthetics." A noble intent, as advertisers are often the source of profit for magazines. With such an interesting approach to menswear, this stimulating piece this editorial —titled 'Torso'— emulates a mix of modernistic internet art with sleek menswear.

The spread modernizes the motif of an ancient Greek sculpture by casting an adonis-like model that surely conforms to the ancient standard of human form. The impeccably tailored pieces are given a new dimension as photographer Florian Neuville takes glitch-decomposition imagery to new levels. This fashion spread whets my appetite for future SID Magazine editorials. Stats for Digital Decomposition Photography Trending: Older & Warm
