Inspired by the cherry blossom season, a very special moment in London when all the trees bloom and when the parks are filled with pink and white petals, London-based fashion photographer Karl Slater @guysbykarl wanted to capture that specific moment. For this fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online, he worked with the handsome and gorgeous model Nathan Balie @nate_balie, who is represented by the model agency PRM @prm_agency and the result is just magnificent.
“I want to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees.”Pablo Neruda
Shot with a Canon in London SE11, the soft beauty vibe is combined with masculine energy. To showcase that, stylist Kennedy Sliver did a great job putting together an array of really cool pieces that included brands like Nathan Wears, Sixth June, Bershka, and ASOS DESIGN. In charge of the makeup was Martina Derosa @martinaderosa_mua who did an amazing job creating a soft and simple glam using NARS Cosmetics to perfect the model’s skin and to make him shine more than usual.
There is no doubt they all form a perfect team because the result is amazing. This fashion editorial shows the sensuality and fragility of the male body but at the same time, it also shows the strength and the sexiness of the model’s body. The soft tones of the styling, a combination of sporty vibes and casual clothing, perfectly combine with the white and pink backgrounds of the cherry blossom. Nathan seems confident, looking directly to the camera in the closeup shots and always looking flawlessly gorgeous in all the poses and angles.
