Clown-Inspired Masked Editorials

The Razvan Firea by Barna Nemethi Portrait Series is Unexpected

— October 1, 2012 — Fashion
The Razvan Firea by Barna Nemethi portrait series is featured in the #1 issue of All Hallow magazine. The masked editorial highlights an unexpected visual concept that is both eccentric and strange.

Razvan sports a series of face-concealing masks that display a wide range of changing expressions. These masks are paired with dapper menswear looks and exaggerated headwear accessories that are infused with a retro aesthetic.

The model is outfitted by styling duo Emilian Ciobanu and Marian Palie who dress him in 70s inspired wardrobe staples with a feminine touch. From all tweed looks to bowed silk shirts and wide-legged trousers, this retro editorial fuses off-kilter styling along with off-putting face masks, making the model resemble a comic hero or cartoon character rather than a human being.
