Taking an unconventional approach to both menswear and editorial layout, the Hero Magazine ‘Panda Rock’ spread was styled by Nicola Formichetti.
Formichetti is best known for his excellence in womenswear design at Mugler, yet his eclectic style and outstanding personal branding have made him infamous in his own respect. In this piece for Hero Magazine, his ultra-modern aesthetic shines with the fragmented layout of the editorial, as well as the highly avant-garde nature of styling that has a male model sporting women’s clothing.
Model Jonathan Bauer-Hayden enhances the rebellious spirit of this fashion story sporting garments that are very punk-chic. With its ode to edgy attitude and superb styling the Hero Magazine Panda Rock challenges notions of conventional menswear to redefine the urbane hipster gentleman.
