Stefan Khoo lenses the 'Dial M' editorial for April's issue of Singapore magazine Style:Men. The shoot menacing and evokes an intense sense of evil. The narrative is quite suggestive, whether the subject if the devil, a sleek serial killer or a sadistic maniac. The artistic direction emphasized model Bart Grein's harsh cheekbones and chilling glare, with dead trees, fiery backdrops and angles perfect for a condescending gaze.
The shoot is outfitted by stylist Chia Wei Choong. The model wears ensembles boasting pieces from Gucci, Jil Sander, Bottega Veneta and other high fashion labels. Beyond the sleek, contemporary and wearable pieces, the model is adorned with menacing gear. In one shoot, he is featured wearing long patent leather gloves, while wielding a whip. In another, he is protected by a sheer plastic coat while holding some kind of tool. Is it to protect him from splattering blood in his new pleatless Gucci pants?
