In the raw industrial confines of a Los Angeles loft, Wilhelmina LA models convene, embodying the rugged spirit of Americana through a lens that is as timeless as denim itself. Christian Rios, wielding a keen eye for creative direction, orchestrates a stylish vision of masculinity and modernity.

Photographer Gabe Araujo lenses the story, capturing portraits, the interplay of light and shadow, and the silent stories shared by Billy Dunn, David Fisher, Donovahnn Duhaney, Franky Cammarata, Kai Paula, Kai Wright, and Rios Gaia—each adding a layer of depth to their denim.

Styled by Peiwen Wang, pieces come together from brands, including Diesel, Levi’s, Calvin Klein, and Loewe. Denim takes center stage, elevating the casual fabric to a symbol of quiet strength, with each model acting as a chapter in a narrative that blends its heritage with contemporary design.

Regarding grooming, Keon Cruz and Lynn Makeup Studio ensure that every detail is a tribute to the craft. From the textured quiff to tousled curls, Cruz’s mastery of hair speaks of a studied casualness.

At the same time, the grooming by Lynn Makeup Studio hints at a natural finesse, allowing each model’s distinctive features to resonate with the camera’s gaze. It’s a collaboration of talents that results in a feature where the allure is as tangible as the denim that takes center stage.
