The 'Warriors' pictorial for Client magazine was lensed and styled by photographer Richard Phibbs and fashion editor Antonio Branco. The shoot relives the era where virile gladiators once entertained the audience of the Roman Empire.
With their good looks, toned pecs and chiseled abs, the group of top Brazilian male models and up and comers decked in swordsmen gears of padded bodyguard, elbow pads, and chest padded plate are sure to melt every woman’s heart. Reminiscent of the movie 300, Warriors is a testosterone-packed shoot, which sees the group of models donning ensembles from Sports Authority, Hemes, Stone Island, Versace, Nike, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss Orange, Under Armor, Emporio Armani, Gucci and Y3.
Ultimately, the Warriors editorial shoot by Richard Phibbs is a modern reinterpretation of the ancient gladiator sport.
