The Collezioni Uomo 'Wonderlust' editorial features model Evandro Soldati in a series of lusty poses. Despite the industrial setting for this spread in the magazine's Fall/Winter issue, photographer Christian Conti captured phallic imagery in virtually every single final frame.

To fit the Collezioni Uomo 'Wonderlust' theme, Christopher Campbell styled the menswear shoot in sexual (and atypical) pieces like thick knit leggings, tight trousers and pectoral-baring tops.

Implications - As North American media outlets become over saturated with similar images and ideas, corporations are resorting to shockvertisement campaigns in order to gain consumer attention. Corporations looking to stand out from their competitors can similarly use over-sexualized imagery in their marketing campaigns to garner the interest of the general public.
