Portrait of a (tall, dark, handsome) man

Dark eyes, strong brows, cheekbones so sharp they should come with a warning label: Alexander Ferrario is the living definition of tall, dark, and handsome. It’s with the right styling and the right direction, though, that a male model goes from being presented as a youth blessed with good looks, to being portrayed as a man. In front of Pierre Dal Corso‘s lens, the young Ferrario becomes the latter.

Dal Corso puts every shadow to work in accenting his subject’s strong jawline, hollowed cheeks and uncompromising mouth. The grainy black and white of the images makes them strong and moody in themselves; no busy backdrops to dilute Ferrario’s commanding presence. Sarah Cazeneuve’s styling too – whether a classic roll neck and double-breasted coat, a quilted bomber or no shirt at all – has a timeless masculine appeal.

Hair stylist Anais Lucas Sebagh makes architectural magic out of Ferrario’s locks, from full dishevelment to gravity-defying quiffs.

Shot for AugustMan Magazine, it’s well worth indulging in all of Pierre Dal Corso’s (pierredalcorso.com) portrait of a modern classic man. Find the rest at the gallery.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
