TO BE OR NOT TO BE ON FIFTH. Menswear Editorial from Acne Paper #14

'Manhatten- that mythical metropolis, that slim island with the magnificent skyline that rises from the water like a machinery of concrete and steel, glass and glittering lights.'
Thomas Persson/Editor-in-chief and creative director of Acne Paper

There are few other publications I await to purchase so eagerly as the bi-annual Acne Paper magazine. Acne Paper is unique in that each issue offers an in-depth exploration of one key theme from various, often unexpected perspectives. Merging the past and the present, the insightful, though-provoking editorial content exudes a timeless quality; nostalgic yet refreshingly modern.

Issue 14 is a portrait of Manhatten, featuring an eclectic selection of the inspiring people, creative work and diverse cultures which make the city one of the most fascinating, sophisticated places in the world. Having visited Manhatten at the beginning of this year, the issue's dedication to Manhatten is of personal significance to me; my experience of New York gave me a glimpse of the future; of possibilities and opportunities, of inspiration and of success.

New York has been the focus of much news this week due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy; rarely is the powerful city so vulnerable, and my thoughts are with the residents that have been affected by the destruction.

I have chosen to share an exquisite menswear editorial from Acne Paper #14, styled by Mattias Karlsson and photographed by David Armstrong. Named 'TO BE OR NOT TO BE ON FIFTH' the beautiful editorial features model Mathias Lauridsen and captures the essence of a privilaged New York gentleman, exploring the mystery.of the famous Fifth Avenue. Striking, nonchalant and elegant, I am captivated by the story.
