Quentin De Briey, one the fashion industry's hidden gems of photographers, has shot male model, Bastian Thiery, in an elegantly architectural editorial, which emphasizes the increasing comeback of minimal fashion as seen in the 1990s, but with a post-modern twist. A hint of metallic is seen in the Burberry Prorsum coat and clever panelling in the Bottega Veneta blazer, but how can one not ignore the sheer brilliance of the locations which complement the composition of the photographs and the intriguing fashion? The dualities and displacement of the model in the built environment remind me of the film, "Stay", one of my favourite films of all time. Screen test or not, this simple editorial shoot is one that forces you to understand the link between fashion, film and architecture, especially in Minimalism fashion.
