Marc’s Girl, a fashion editorial for the latest issue of Candy magazine, features model Naleye Junior Dolmans by Leon Mark. Photographer Leon captures Lolita-inspired images of a little girl playing dress-up. Androgynous male model Naleye stars in the gender-bending pictorial that is both innocent and whimsical.

The playful photo series features a wardrobe of floral prints and knitted stripes and polka dots, accessorized with oversized hats and shades. Naleye Junior Dolmans sports designs from Marc Jacobs in the Benjamin Bruno-styled spread. The childlike feminine wardrobe is a Marc Jacobs staple and manages to give the shoot a cheeky and vintage vibe.

Photographer Leon Mark's use of saturated colour and blurring creates out-of focus imagery that makes you see the world through rose-coloured glasses. These image techniques are retro-infused and add a 70s flair of the vintage-inspired shoot.
