The recent edition of Spray magazine features an endearing editorial, sprouting with reworked clothing and revitalized vintage imagery. The 'Patch Work' editorial plays off of folkish vibes and 1970s high fashion. The result is a crossover between your grandmother's basement and the iconic over-exposed advertisements for Marc Jacobs. The ensembles include pieces from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Lacoste Live! and more, all focusing on the color block/patch work motif. The shoot was outfitted by stylist Char­lotte Briere. The editorial is sartorial, yet relaxed, exhibiting a youthfulness and style for a young man coming to his own.

The alluring editorial was lensed by photographer Emanuele Fontanesi. The artist has a masterful eye for color composition and lighting. The artistic direction of the shoot is highly complex, while maintaining a simplicity.
