Although a rare sight in an industry dominated by womenswear, the men’s editorial is nevertheless an important vehicle for showcasing collections designed for men. As its name suggests, men’s fashion magazine Essential Homme caters to the fundamentals of the male of the species. A story by Spanish photographer Aingeru Zorita running in the Spring 2018 issue starring Eli Epperson and Tyler Blue Golden extends this mandate. Titled “Crosscut,” the series embraces dissonance borne of contrasting stripes with patterns other than alternating strips. The combinations are a bit maddening at times, but full credit to the boys for maintaining their composure. These after all are consummate professionals who know their way in front of a camera.
