The darker side of menswear

A rock-star worthy attitude meets the darker side of fashion in a dramatic photo shoot captured by Niklas Hoejlund for Client Magazine. The black and white picture story evokes a sense of savagery that is effortlessly delivered by model Henrik F through a series of deep artistic moments exuding feelings of oblivion.

Going back to the roots, Niklas Hoejlund found inspiration in the primitive simplicity that he chose to feature afterwards in an uncomplicated shoot, playing mostly upon the gentle collision between toughness and softness. The masculine elements are being balanced by an array of subtle feminine accents that succeeded in complementing the moody atmosphere. Nothing looks misplaced in the striking concept.

The fantastic styling envisioned by Barbara Gullstein managed to further accentuate the dark character of the unexpected photo shoot. From the edgy aesthetic highly represented by the black and leather combo, to the impeccable hair and make up created by the talented hands of Sam Shimoun, everything in the shoot echoes the raw unworldliness of the wild and primal era.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
