MODERN GAY STYLE: PRINTS

Sean O'Pry - Schon Magazine

“Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got fun and games” – Guns ‘n Roses

As the Northern Hemisphere emerges from winter, it’s time to update your wardrobe with summer prints. Perhaps this is the summer that we’ll replace cut-off jean shorts and revealing singlets with more sophisticated options? Perhaps not.

Whether you live in the north or plan to travel to Europe (hello Mykonos!), here’s model Sean O’Pry showing you how summer fashion is done in a new editorial entitled “Jungle Fever” from Schon! Magazine styled by Andrew Holden.

MODERN GAY STYLE: SLIM AARONS

Slim Aarons

From the moment you turn the first page of “Poolside with Slim Aarons” you are transported to a glamorous and carefree world, where the pool is the universe, the people are the stars and the colours are nostalgic. Slim Aarons captures private moments in time from the pools of the super rich and famous. It is through these brief but expressive moments that the viewer is allowed a limited and curious peak into a life that only the most privileged have ever experienced.

The men and women in Slim Aarons’ images embody a sexuality and beauty that has long been lost in these modern days of plastic surgery, gym toned bodies and super skinniness; there’s a refreshing lack of self consciousness.

Three pages in and you begin to fantasise about sipping mojitos poolside in Palm Springs. You start to form fabricated memories of a life you may have once lived in a villa in Positano or a summer retreat in Mexico.  And this is why “Poolside” is one of my favourite books – it truly provokes the imagination. It allows you to create a story, one in which you’re the main character, sitting poolside in the life of your dreams.
