There are so many things that are arriving; spring, my birthday, and the beginning of new projects and directions. It seems the best to describe this new crop of much needed visual inspiration.
Have you ever thought about what your daily life looks like on film? Most of us never think that the things that we do each day could possibly be of interest to anyone on the outside world. The thing is that we’re often wrong. For me, seeing the inside of people’s lives is fascinating. Take a stroll down Velvet Drive, lensed by Aaron Sinclair in Los Angeles for fashiongrunge.com

It’s late on a Thursday night, and while gathering inspiration and creating moodboards for my upcoming shoots I look to the modeling agencies for new faces to complete my concept. British model Duncan Pyke is one of the latest male models to catch my eye. Signed to Premier Models in London, his rugged but classic face is much loved all over the web it seems. He reminds me a bit of Jack Kilmer with a mix of Edward Norton. Not a bad mix I’d say.
Beyond the runways of Paris and Milan lies the alternate lives of models. German model and musician Ringo Lukas is one of the latest male models that I’ve become intrigued with. From his simple and linear ink, chiseled cheekbones each shoot he does is giving me such inspiration. He’s modeled for Saint Laurent and Lanvin in the past seasons. Represented in Cologne by Tomorrow Is Another Day, I would love the chance to shoot with him one day. For now, let’s take a deeper look into his monochromatic style and impressive editorial resume.
In my usual browse for male model muses (and from suggestions on the Facebook page) I found Finnish model Oskari Nyyssölä. He’s signed with Nisch Management in Sweden and is slowly making the rounds of editorials and publications. While he is a trained ballet dancer, there is something quite rugged and mysterious behind him. I hope we’ll be seeing more of him soon.

Things are about to hit. And I’m starting to see through the clouds.

From all corners of the globe this early nineties style is being soaked up for inspiration in current collections. For designer Nico Carp, based in Bucharest, Romania she used the “back to grunge” concept in her AW 14.15 collection.
She says “This collection aims to keep the image of the past but also wants to reflect the grunge attitude of these days, the joy of our own freedom.”
