The Florian Wowretzko lookbook takes on a warrior inspiration and pays homage to combative attire worn by the Japanese Samurai. New York Models faces Joe F and Matthew Waters star in this tattered and collaged catalog. The duo is lensed by photographer Biel Parklee, who captures them as they hold dynamic poses that are both statuesque and athletic.

The Florian Wowretzko collection catalog features collaged pages that combine over-lapping imagery. Joe and Matthew channel fighters in a portrait series that features ripped visual effects. Mimicking a double exposure, the catalog's rough edges and layered images give it an illusion of depth.

This striking menswear line combines exaggerated proportions, dramatic draping and sharp silhouettes that are a modern take on traditional Japanese garments.
