Jimmy Tagliaferri spent Monday afternoon at New York Men's Day, where a selection of hot up-and-coming designers kicked off New York Fashion Week: Men's with a coterie of fresh and eclectic presentations. At NYMD, Tagliaferri caught collections by brands like Descendant of Thieves, Heliot Emil, Life in Perfect Disorder, Body Wild, R.Swiader, and Maiden Noir. While each presentation had its own distinct appeal, Tagliaferri's eye was drawn to a lot of the same features time and time again: his camera caught the models and men at the shows beneath their necklines, focusing on their taut physiques and their swaggering postures.
When we asked Tagliaferri about his approach to shooting fashion, the photographer told us, "I love documenting awkward moments in fashion because it crushes the stereotype of everything being glamorous and perfect."
Here's what he saw.
