Lydia Hunt, Jordan Barrett and Louis Mayhew star in 'Purple Haze,' Idol Magazine's edgy editorial exclusive. Drawing inspiration from the past, wardrobe stylist Ryan Davis dresses his models in printed satin tops, fringed leather vests and plenty of denim pieces. This image series pays homage to the 70s and blends the decade's inspiration with contemporary styles that reference its aesthetic.

'Purple Haze,' is inspired by rocker Jimmy Hendrix' hit song and is captured by photographer Greg Swales' lens. Gracing Idol's Spring/Summer 2015 issue, this editorial highlights lounging models who don modern fashions with a retro twist.

Their look is youthful, carefree while their expressions are contemplative and candid. Embracing raw and honest imagery, this shoot is spontaneous rather than overly posed or staged.
