Apocalyptic imagery and science fiction fashion become one in the latest Fernando Cabral editorial for Open Lab #6, 'The Minimalist Issue.' Captured by Warren Bryce, the model dons futuristic looks from stylist Donald Hicks reminiscent of a sci-fi character from another world, set against a background that suggests the end of this one.
The standard all-black outfit is transformed into an avant-garde menswear ensemble with the use of high collars, angled shoulders, and unnaturally shaped silhouettes, which have been a favorite of designers like Rad Hourani and Thom Browne for their Fall/Winter 2012 collections. Despite opting for more traditionally feminine shapes, Hicks makes one mean apocalyptic warrior out of Fernando and showcases androgynous looks fitting for any chic fashion lover. With imagery that appears to have been pulled from the next action blockbuster, the Fernando Cabral Open Lab photo shoot is a must-see.
