Cecilia Austin brings a soft beauty to menswear shoots that not every photographer can master. Pairing up with Minami Takashima for this project made that fact particularly obvious: model, Vincent Beard, is styled in pleated skirts, sensuous furs, a garland of roses. Everything between the styling and photography is a dark romance – dandy yet modern, classic yet androgynous.
The hair by Max Sawicky and makeup by Gill Cortez add to the simple drama. You can view the full shoot at the gallery above.
