Driven by the dynamic power of oppositions, photographer Carlos Montilla and art director Alex Francisco present an experiment in future-dressing, marrying together elements of past decades to create an energetic fusion that Francisco describes as “neo-blending”.

The dualistic nature of each individual piece is explored and contributes to what Francisco calls, “a mutiny of mismatched elements, allowing us to see modern style in a new way”.

Besides the temporal experimentation, there are also strong elements of neogenderism, drawing elements of heightened femininity together with traditionally masculine details such as the artfully placed military beret, designed by Georgio Armani, and an oversized tuxedo jacket. Montilla and Francisco selected model Vanusa for her gamine, amorphous look, reflecting the varied nature of the story.
