Stephen James channels an opulent rocker for this latest NOX magazine cover story that tributes famous band KISS. The tattooed top model is captured by photographer Juanjo Molina’s lens while posing in an industrial, mechanic’s garage.

Art direction and styling for this image series is courtesy of Abraham Gutiérrez who hand-picks Stephen’s wardrobe of colored suits, transparent rain gear and pattern-clashing separates.

The model sports the latest from Givenchy, Jimmy Choo and Balenciaga for this KISS-themed editorial that also recreates the famous band’s makeup looks. Antonio Estrada for REDKEN and MAC is in charge of grooming for the photo series and gives Stephen a clean-cut hair look that offsets cosmetics worthy of KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.
