Model Files : Toby Leonard

22ad0784826b60a2c2f41990e4aaa4cc

It’s been a minute since I’ve searched the internet for a new male model muse. In drafting this post I was shocked that I hadn’t written about British model, Toby Leonard before. Over the past few years I’ve been following his editorial and runway work. One of the things I love most about his work is the gritty street edge that shines through, he’s also a boxer. Come on, those tattoos all over don’t hurt either.

Look Book Love : Yang Li SS13

1008867

It was only a matter of time before the street style photography style would begin to bleed into the fashion industry. While it already has been for years, a more literal and realistic approach was taken with the SS13 look book from then London based designer, Yang Li. Now I believe he’s based in Paris.  I know this collection is a few seasons old but I just can’t get this tough but street minimal clean taste off my brain.

From all corners of the globe this early nineties style is being soaked up for inspiration in current collection.  For designer Nico Carp, based in Bucharest, Romania he used the “back to grunge” concept in his AW 14.15 collection.

He says “This collection aims to keep the image of the past but also wants to reflect the grunge attitudef of these days, the joy of our own freedom.”

Meet Skateboarder Ben Nordberg

tumblr_mxs5pf0QWn1s62g0ko1_1280

It seems that the skateboarder-model hybrid is reaching its pinnacle in the world of fashion these days. Much like the musician-model or actor-model days of the 80s and 90s. Since living in California I’ve been more influenced by skateboarders as models. Not models in the traditional sense of an editorial way but more of a muse and inspirational figure that inspires photographers.

Ben Nordberg is a British born skateboarder for Flip Skateboards. He grew up in Bath, England and started skating at age eleven. Now he’s based in Los Angeles, one of the skating meccas and doing some shoots along the way. Not only do I love his ‘off duty’ style, but his editorial work is pretty dope too.

“My Girl’s a Tomboy” by Maggie Dylan for Yen Magazine

Tomboy-leader

The concept of the ‘tomboy’ has pretty much been my mantra since I was a kid. I’ve never been much for dressing up in frilly dresses so any nod to that lifestyle is well received by me. In this editorial by Maggie Dylan for Yen, it brings me back to my high school days. And I feel right at home.

Dim. E. Cres – I’m The Future | Fall 2014

dim-ecres-fall-2014-im-future22509

The Fall look book from Korean label, CRES. E. DIM‘s second line, Dim. E Cres gives me a whole new reason to look forward to the Fall season. I pretty much long for the end of summer just as soon as it begins each year. This take on a modern sportwear school girl mixed with a touch of 90s edge is one of the most original takes on fashion I’ve seen for a minute. Kudos, Dim. E Cres.

Afropunk 2014 Street Style

drielys-0140

I swear next year I’m going to the Afropunk festival. Ever since I saw the documentary a few years back I finally felt like someone made a film about me, and for me that was speaking my language. It’s now become more of a movement and I’ve followed them on Facebook for years it seems. Each year in NYC there is an Afropunk festival that is a display of some of the best rock bands in the music scene. It’s just another wonderful reminder that music has no color and there are still some places where everyone can gather together and celebrate our differences and become connected.

I’ve gathered some of my favorite street style looks from various sites. Each year I’m even more excited to see the style that comes from the festival and this year is no different. I need to do casting here as well, I want to photograph all of these people. Yes, definitely must go next year.

Meet the Model: Kai Hillebrand

Katie-McCurdy_Kai_01

German born model Kai Hillebrand is just one of new faces that is hitting the ground this year in the fashion industry. In a recent interview for Bite Magazine he mentions his love of skating since he was 13 and his need for just bacon, eggs, cheese, and coffee for breakfast. Oh, and not to forget the cigarette. Lensed by Katie McCurdy these simple and easy portraits give a quick window into one of my season favorites on the mens side.
