The newly released spring/summer 2016 cover of The Greatest is for me a breath of fresh air, thanks to its updated clean and minimal design, which certainly puts the spotlight on the beauty of the clothes displayed on the magazine, renouncing to countless, and very often useless, embellishments or titles that we see on so many other publications. To celebrate the launch of the new issue, the magazine’s creative minds found in model Erik van Gils the man of the moment, appearing before the lens of photographer Alessandro Dal Buoni to star in a striking black & white image. Beautifully styled by the magazine’s Matteo Greco in a wardrobe that comes straight from the spring/summer 2016 collection designed by Kris Van Assche for French luxury label Dior Homme, Erik presents a new idea of menswear and beauty, thanks to his unique angles and intriguing personality. //Hair by Gianluca Guaitoli (WM Management).
