Portuguese photographer João Hasselberg @joao.hasselberg and stylists Sérgio11 @sergio.onze worked together with the new face model Silvio Dalesio @silviodalesio.png represented by We are Models @weare_models for this fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online!
This editorial focuses on Silvio’s strong character, which mixes two worlds: the classic
and the sporty. A chill boy, with urban influences, a representative in the standards
chosen purposefully, and with some elements of boxing to make a metaphor of his
strength and perseverance. This editorial shows the freshness and the young and modern vibes of the young photographer João Hasselberg.
The photographer used a Nikon D850 and a Sigma Art 35 mm1.4 for this shoot. They shot in the studio inside the We Are Models headquarters in Lisbon, and the idea for the set was very simple. They didn’t want to take the attention off the character of the model and the thought styling. “We ended up using mostly a white screen and let the other elements be the highlight for the ideas intended: styling, model and sports element: boxing.” This way, they kept a very clean and simple aesthetic in order to focus on the model and his personality, as well as to focus on the story itself.
In addition to using brands of Portuguese designers such as Alexandra Moura and Lidija
Kolovrat, the stylist Sérgio11 @sergio.onze used some luxury brands like Gucci, Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, and Tommy Hilfiger. They also used the Reebok brand in the sportiest aspect.
The model was very relaxed, in a very familiar atmosphere. We wanted him to be comfortable for his personality to stand out and went to meet what we were willing to do: a confident, carefree, and strong boy.
