Eccentric Menswear Editorials

The Cole Mohr for Manifesto Hong Kong Shoot Has Class

— December 17, 2011 — Fashion
The 'Run Away' menswear editorial starring Cole Mohr for Manifesto Hong Kong is an edgy take on gangster-inspired style. Cole stars in the magazine's latest issue in a stylish shoot lensed by photographer Jimmy Ming Shum.

Cole is dressed in a color-filled and flamboyant wardrobe styled by Yoshi Miyamasu. The model sports sleek suited separates, luxurious furs and layered outerwear. His eccentric style combines street-wear and high style elements with bold colors and rich textures. The model wears designer selects from labels that include Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen, Ann Demeulemeester among others.

Cole takes on a fashionable role that is inspired by humorous pop culture iconography. His clothes do not match his surroundings making him stand out and seem out of place. Shot in an industrial setting, this photo series juxtaposes a stark backdrop with eclectic styling, with an end result that is high fashion at its best.
