Fernando Cabral x Dapper Dan In 'Stand And Watch'

Dapper Dan Magazine released their 9th Issue with an editorial featuring Bissau-Guinean model Fernando Cabral.

One of our favorite male models Fernando Cabral is the face of Stand And Watch, an editorial for Dapper Dan magazine's 9th issue. Photographed by Johan Sandberg, the styling pops out well within the monochrome set-up, bringing forward different prints and layers along with an ethereal and mystical feel. Cabral mainly stands solemn, striking simple yet iconic poses with a blank stare. Scroll through our gallery to view the photographs and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #fernandocabral.
