Mens couture editorial entitled:
  Feeling the Miami breeze through texturized couture reckless abandon!

This mens couture editorial was inspired by the luxury reckless abandon and impecable charm of the latin Miami culture.


This was such an exciting moment in the GSb Men's couture SAGA! I have been an admirer of Kemuel's work for a while now. It is not everyday that you find a celebrity Photographer that is so passionate about the Art and has the skills to make everything he shoots epic! He is a regular contributor to Bello Magazine for their celebrity spreads!


I wanted to really challenge myself from a design perspective, leaving in my signature touches of decadent real fur knits, while keeping the garments light enough to stand the Miami heat and blend in a strong cultural overtone.

Here is a professional styling TIP:

Don't focus just on what is trendy or HIP, focus on what is really you, your best concept and personal style, because when you are authentically YOU, well that is HIP!

This was a challenge, but as you can see the finished art is as polished as and sharp as the eye brows on all the Cuban socialite Papi's walking around Miami Beach!


It's always great to mix up the cultural, textural, and time period elements. That is how I keep myself confident and skilled enough to make custom clothes to fit whatever tastes and background a client could have.

See the Men's Couture Editorial from Numero Homme #25 "LA Foret"! It was very inspiring!

Anyway! We decided that Miami is such a great place to do editorial for j-na couture and GSb Men's Couture. Some of the most exotic beautiful models in the country work there.

The fashion scene is SO much funner than that of NYC, and not to mention it is a welcome and luxury escape from the Chicago winters we endure!

Hands down the beaches in Hollywood Florida were my personal favorite! I thought I was in Puerto Rico!
