These Stefan Giftthaler images are from the collection 'Maharaja' and feature a handsome bearded gentleman wearing a turban and some dapper suits. The collection from the Milan-based fashion photographer is heavy with Eastern and Indian symbolism. The Maharaja type figure is seen amongst plush fabrics and sitting on richly textured carpets.
The mythical Stefan Giftthaler images feature the gentleman in embellished tuxedo jackets, velvet smoking jackets and embellished gold leaf motif shoes. This rich cultural setting is the perfect way for the designer to showcase the stylish menswear collection and give a hint of the mystical and mysteriousness.
Stefan Giftthaler is a Milan based fashion photographer who's works have appeared in Vanity Fair, German Elle and Vogue Pelle.
