The Collector magazine reveals a narrative of introspection and style through the lens of photographer Massimo Leardini. The editorial, styled by Carlo Alberto Pregnolato, presents Jeenu Mahadevan in a wardrobe by Paul & Shark.
Jeenu combats the cold in rugged ensembles, including classic essentials such as the chunky sweater, pleated trousers, and a deconstructed knit.
Jeenu’s journey outdoors mirrors the inherent wanderlust of the human spirit, seeking solace in the vastness of nature. His attire, a blend of neutral tones, harmonizes with the understated palette of the winter landscape.
This synergy between subject and setting mirrors the thoughtful curation of each ensemble. For instance, a parka and an overshirt are garments and armor against the elements, reflecting a narrative of resilience and adaptation.
Jeenu, with his contemplative gaze and fluid movements, embodies a portrayal of the modern man who is at once connected to the world around him and distinctly apart. The images encapsulate a sense of quiet strength, each frame a study of the balance of movement and stillness.
In this winter story, The Collector beckons us to find beauty in the bare, to seek warmth in style, and to witness the silent dialogue between man and nature—a dialogue punctuated by the timeless aesthetic of Paul & Shark.
