For the 25th issue of Italian magazine Sportweek I was invited to create "Gente di Mare", a six pages fashion editorial, exploring the nautical theme in a new and contemporary light while presenting some of the Spring/Summer 2020 trends for men.
The fully illustrated editorial was conceived together with fashion director Carlo Ortenzi, who was also in charge of the casting, and the collaboration of fashion editor Gianluca Zappoli.
Alexander Carey Morgan wears canvas trench by Distretto 12, striped cotton t-shirt, cotton chinos and cotton jumper by Tommy Hilfiger. Lucky Blue Smith wears cotton polo shirt by Impulso.
Prince Nikolai of Denmark wears cotton sweater by Impulso, Clément Chabernaud wears nylon jacket and cotton sweater by Stone Island.
Jarrod Scott wears cotton sweater by Navigare, Rockwelll Harwood wears NyBer zip goggle jacket, knitted wool beanie hat and cotton polo shirt all by C.P. Company.
It was a huge pleasure to work on this project and to be published in my own country makes me even happier and prouder. Thank you very much to Carlo Ortenzi and the whole Sportweek team.
"Gente di Mare" is available on Sportweek, the weekly sports magazine issued every Saturday in Italy with La Gazzetta dello Sport.
