Channeling the art of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, Dazed and Confused Magazine created a baroque art-style editorial.

The photoshoot for Dazed and Confused Magazine has 8 male models all wearing different designers takes on Baroque and Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio art. The results are dark, romantic and somewhat odd male fashions. Take a look at the baroque designs for Dazed and Confused Magazine above.

Implications - Many designers are paying homage to the icons of art by incorporating their styles into their works. Revisiting classical pieces is a chance for consumers to be exposed to inspiring styles that they can call their own in the present. The modernization of vintage themes will essentially allow brands to create something entirely original that consumers will appreciate and resonate with for its familiarity.
