The top layer you put on is a way to show the world a few details about yourself. It’s not just made for protection against cooler temps or to make you feel comfortable.
Being able to remain neutral and pique interest is the perfect balance that is sought after when it comes to owning your true self with grounded confidence. What you wear should do the same, being the perfect complement to your personality. Once this is accomplished, the efforts aren’t a task, it becomes a natural part of you.

Level37- Skin Care Summer
Taking on a life off the land is a serious commitment, but to take on a nautical style, you can go all the way and even have a bit of fun with it.
In this editorial, taking the cover is Jonathan Bellini, who shows us many different attitudes, from a no nonsense man of the sea to a whimsical sailorman. The concept is also moved forward with an urban spirit of patriotism and resililience. Altogether it is proof that the ebb and flow of style can be set at any pace you desire.
Level37- Not A Sailor…

Looking out towards the edge of the earth, everything seems to have a definite ending line. At the same time, everything seems possible and endless.
In this editorial from Fucking Young!, the parallels between human form and the beauty of nature are explored. A collision of the elements of the world and in style are captured with an artistic impact. The comparisons presented are reminiscent of sculpture with muted colors and the use of black and white; lending an interpretation that is left for the reviewer to decide.
The molding of all of these things- art, form, style, design, and nature, stretches the borders a little bit further than once believed could be accomplished.

So often what is overlooked is the preparation it takes before embarking upon a journey. The road will not prepare itself for you; you will never know what is ahead. You have to always be ready for it no matter what comes your way. The main key towards the journey is passion.
A life worth living has passion at it’s heart, for is the source of all that flows out of it creating a lasting impact. The atmosphere is changed where the persistent attitude of motivation is palpable. The energy is transferred to those around you making you of one mind, moving forward with the same vision.
Everything falls in line the way it’s supposed to when you are in sync with every component of the path you’re set upon. Always at ready, when the gateway opens, all you’ll need to do is go.
