From Ripped Warrior Pictorials to Bloodied Moderl Portraits

 - Aug 21, 2014
These combative menswear editorials range from ripped warrior pictorials to bloodied model shoots. Taking inspiration from various forms of battle, these editorials can embody themes that are dark and disturbing as well as those that are more lighthearted and conceptual.

Standouts from this list of combative menswear editorials include F****** Young Online's 'This is Warfare' story. The feature boasts violent imagery and features bloodied portraits of its model star Cameron Day. While this image series takes on a violent theme, another standout, Versace's wrestler-themed catalog, is more fun and carefree.

The lookbook highlights the Italian label's opulent menswear styles-from the Spring/Summer 2013 season-and explores their similarities with wrestling and boxing memorabilia like championship belts and winner trophies, often made of ornate metals.
