Financial Times’ How to Spend It celebrates “An Elegant Summer” with cover star Leon Dame. The German model joins newcomer Moustapha Sy for a stunning editorial that features eveningwear. As the magazine elegantly puts it, “Formal dress codes bring a touch of glamour to every day.”
Leon and Moustapha alternate between the studio and the city streets as they appear before photographer Robin Galiegue. The latter captures them in dashing summer 2021 looks styled by Andreas Peter Krings. In contrast to the current leisure trend, Galiegue’s images resonate with a nostalgic appreciation for formal dress.
Krings styles Leon and Moustapha in debonair ensembles that showcase neutral tones with the occasional pop of color. Modern dandies, the models wear long coats, billowing trousers, tuxedo jackets, and more. The selection comes together from an array of brands like Jil Sander, Bottega Veneta, and Etro.
