In the latest issue of Deluxx magazine, models Jakub Zelman and Louis Trainor wear spike-covered shirts, sweaters and vests and an array of armor-inspired separates.
Cleon Manz is the photographer behind the Deluxx editorial, and stylist Leonardo Carvallho is responsible for the aggressive fashion from designers like Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Void of Course, Prada, Maison Martin Margiela, Gucci, Calvin Klein and Asger Juel Larsen.
I adore the aggressive edge in this Deluxx magazine photo shoot; in image after image, Zelman and Trainor exude masculinity, confidence and machismo. The first image especially showcases a raw, edgy attitude that's hard to emulate without provocation.
Spikes and studs have been featured in several seasonal collections lately; its punk rock flair and don't-mess-with-me aesthetic gives even the most demure of models a leg up on the competition.
