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 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.”

Sometimes when there is change there is a feeling of hitting a sort of low or bottom. When you rise out of that fog, you become a chameleon and adapt to the change. There are some changes going on here but eventually the waves will calm, and a new dawn will approach.
I’ve created this inspiration post to go with an alternative music video by The Vines that I happened to find on the internet (I haven’t seen it in years). So watch the video and scroll down this weeks inspiration patch.

I was reading an interview with Australian model & photographer, Grace Small in Oyster Mag a few months ago and it was one of the best ever. Mainly because we have many of the same influences like Kim Gordon and the ubiquitous “Dirty Girls” clip from YouTube. Upon closer look she shares the hard edged sense of an indie 90s model, probably one of the many reasons why I find her so intriguing.

One of my most recent discoveries is 20 year old Danish model, Sylvester Ulv Henriksen. He’s represented all over Europe but his mother agency is Unique Models in Denmark. A true chameleon in every sense of the word, he was discovered online by a scout when he was 15. Since then he’s modeled in Balenciaga campaigns and appeared in editorials photographed by some of the top industry leaders in the fashion world. This only further cements my desire to do more traveling and shooting in Scandinavia.
