What better opportunity to work with professional models than during Paris Fashion Week? Just like their female counterparts, the men know how to communicate with the cameras. Between the chaotic Fashion Week schedule, rare moments of spontaneity can produce fascinating results. Sometimes, things couldn’t be better than during temps d’arrêt.

Though these photos were shot before the actual start of the “Paris Editorial Series,” it’s impossible not to feature more of the incredible photography by Boutayna Fartale. Her magnificent work has contributed a lot to the development of Des Phosphènes, and we will continue to feature her editorial productions even after it will unfortunately be time to leave Paris and return to the US. But until then, enjoy “Simplicité!”

Le Garçon

A mysterious creature, unrestrained. She’s defined by freedom of expression and true liberation. Le Garçon.

Gender reversal has long been in style, whether wartime cross-dressing or some of today’s most fashionable ladies. Le Garçon presents a reversal on the typical menswear editorial, inspired by female strength and confidence. It is a celebration of freedom and a statement on the versatility of the fashion editorial. Enjoy!
