Tino Thielens stars in this latest and self-titled exclusive editorial for L'Officiel Hommes NL. The Major Paris model is captured by photographer Philippe Vogelenzang's lens while sporting a wardrobe of retro workwear pieces from labels that include Lee, Yohji Yamamoto and Levi’s among a slew of others.
Shining a light on distressed jean garments, oversized overalls and utilitarian apron accessories, the 'Tino Thielens' editorial for L'Officiel Hommes NL graces the publication's Fall/Winter 2013 issue.
