BTS of Elements of SS16: Capturing the Chinoiserie Trend with @AlejandroEmilio_

By now, I’m hoping you’ve all gotten a chance to check out my Elements of Spring/Summer 2016 menswear trend report. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a totally new take on my usual series—this time around, I shot some of my favorite style bloggers and influencers in the season’s biggest trends and put together a free downloadable e-book with our tips and tricks to help you nail your looks in the months ahead. Of course, there was only so much I could include in the guide, but thankfully, there’s plenty of space here to share some of the extra photos that got cut.

First up: chinoiserie, which you can read all about [here].

One of the best parts about this project, besides getting to be behind the camera for a change, was working with new colleagues. Alejandro’s one of my favorite guys on Instagram. New to New York, but no stranger to style, he’s got a dope eye, a sweet take on minimal fashion, and an awesome personality that made shooting him an awesome experience. I’m definitely looking forward to teaming up again this summer. -J
