A diversity in prints, colors and cultural influence is the focus of the latest fashion editorial by Dean Isidro for Out Magazine. Starring model Armando Cabral, the photo set makes use of stylist and fashion editor Grant Woolhead's keen sense for stunning and memorable ensembles, and showcases a unique blend of themes.
Traditional African prints and retro floral patterns are the inspiration behind many of the pieces worn by Armando, with designers like Prada and Burberry embracing bold and bright colors for the Spring/Summer 2012 season. Cast against a tropical background, the editorial's title, 'The Lush Life,' turns into a play on words, commenting both on the lavish "natural" scenery and the extravagant high-fashion lifestyle.
While pink floral pants might not have screamed "summer menswear" in the past, these shots by Dean Isidro for Out Magazine prove that 2012 is the year for embracing bold pieces and breaking out of your shell.
