This ocean-inspired fashion spread titled Frutti Di Mari was shot by fashion photographer JD Forte and styled by Polar Buranasatit. The ocean spread features model Bart Grzybowski, who is completely clad in various oceanic produced shells and accessories. When we thing of aquatic mythic creatures we often think about a mermaid and often overlook mermen.

Frutti Di Mari uses the image of Poseidon for inspiration to style Grzybowski for the photoshoot. The shoot inspires a sort of masculine quality that is not normally associated with the ocean. Men have re-appropriated the ocean with sea inspired clothing in this tidal photoshoot. This deep sea shoot is a reminder of the many beautiful and fashionable inspirations that can come from ocean and nature.
