Sutthiwat Sangkong is the fanatical fashion photographer behind the Next Chapter New Movement editorial. Sangkong earned his BA in the Department of Visual Communication Design at Silpakorn University, and has since aspired to capture inspiring editorials and remarkable photographs. In a recent editorial for Garçon magazine, this talented designer has detained the newest styles of wearable art in menswear.
Entitled Next Chapter, New Movement and starring model Malcolm Lindburg, Sangkong shines a spotlight on the fashion-forward pieces. The fashion collection varies from textural wool coats to conceptual suits and voluminous outerwear pieces. Some items being purposefully tailored to present exaggerated shoulder and pleat details. In addition, several of the garments are layered with pinned on slogans such as ‘Sorry’ and fastenings such as belt buckles, clips and buttons. To say the least these garment constructions truly highlight this seasons most conceptual and imaginative fashion picks.
The pieces are described as wearable art pieces, the designs being primarily focused on self-expression as well as being emotionally and creatively driven. Rather than conform to the minimalist and practical traits of fashion designs that have been seen on runways recently.
The styling of the photo shoot is courtesy of Watcharachai Nun-ngam and Chanasorn Pornprasiddarat. Who, for example, handpicked it’s exaggerated and eccentric clothing staples. Furthermore, paired with the textural and fun clothing selections, the stylists have juxtaposed them with complimenting props and backgrounds. From simple brightly coloured plinths and rolls of paper in variety of colours and sizes, to plain block coloured backgrounds. Choices made by the stylist successfully, in creating exciting and harmonic editorials.
Fashion Industry professionals will be keeping their eyes peeled for future works by Sangkong, who’s steadily becoming a favourite for quirky menswear editorials. Not to mention Malcolm Lindburg, the Swedish model capable of surfer chic and androgynous aesthetics.
