The Freemans Sports Club lookbook is quirky but puts a lot of fun in classic all-American menswear.

The Elle Brazil December 2010 issue features a fabulously macabre model rocking alien-esque hair and makeup. The spread is very avant-garde and utterly fascinating, with model Daiane Conterato pulling the UFO look off impeccably.
15. Mimicking Historical Scenes
Look closely at the Martell XO ads and you’ll see that the framed oil paintings on the walls are mimicked perfectly by the modern occupants of the room. For any business, especially for the alcohol business, the type of advertising campaign that suggests a strong heritage or tradition of unchanged great quality, is always a winning point of departure.14. Sperm-Like Loungers
The Organic Lounge Chair by architect Michael CK Chan takes inspiration from sea creatures, but to another look at the chair resembles a sperm-like shape.
Nevertheless, this lounger is creatively designed and has curves like no other making it look sleek in its all white look. Not only is the aesthetic unique, but itlooks comfortable too.13. Undead Winterwear
My love affair with hoodies has been rekindled after seeing the Zombie Attack Hoodie. This hilarious hoodie features blood splatters and bite marks designed to make you look like the victim of a recent zombie attack.12. Anti-Social Seating
The CALA Indoors Bench is for those times or places where you just don’t feel like engaging in conversation. Designed by Veronica Martinez, it is made of one single ribbon of LG HiMACS with steel leg supports.11. Boldly Surreal Illustrations
There is something about artwork like that of Jerome Meynen’s that is colorfully intriguing. As an illustrator and designer, he uses bold, graphic images to create a surreal world full of odd characters and scenarios.10. Clothes-Free Fur Campaigns
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has enlisted the help of Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses for the latest ‘Ink, Not Mink’ PETA campaign. The rocker and his wife Susan Holmes McKagan pose nearly nearly nude in this promotional poster, demonstrating that the painted pair will only support the “beauty is pain” slogan insofar as it applies to their own skin.9. Surgery-Ready Shoots
The Masha Voronina Tush Winter spread for 2010 gives readers a slightly deeper look into the “beauty” of cosmetics surgery.
Through this editorial, it is clear that going under the knife isn’t all that easy. Complexities, bandages and cut-out lines upon the skin are more scary than fashionable.8. Pensive Smoking Photoshoots
In close-up pictorials featuring Florian Pessenteiner captured by photographer John Burke, we take a personal look into a peaceful shoot of pensive and smoky looks.
Taking a five minute break from the world, these relaxed images show this clean-cut model pondering to himself while at one with nature. Laid back in the grass and sitting on a rock, Florian Pessenteiner relieves stress with a cigarette and looks out into the outdoor wilderness.7. Assembled Modular Abodes
I have a soft spot for prefab architecture, so the Mobile SmartHouse is right up my alley. A German company makes these compact and customizable cabins that come in your choice of dimensions and much more.
I never pictured you could make a bearded, wooden soldier appear sexy, but lo and behold the Katy Perry nutcracker costume!
Making her appearance at the Z100 Jingle Ball Concert, the pop princess has cropped pants into booty shorts, altered a low-cut top and transformed the entire outfit into a skin-tight iridescent bodysuit, making it impossible not to find it anything but provocative. The Katy Perry nutcracker costume will pave the way for turning boring getups into bold and blithe getups.5. Retrofied Supermodels
This supermodel looks prim and proper in the Christy Turlington Elle France spread looking like a natural beauty.
Donning the new looks from the fall/winter collection of Louis Vuitton, it is evident to see that there is surely a common theme and revival of classic cuts from the 50’s era. The Christy Turlingtoon Elle France spread is another great look showing off this supermodel’s classic beauty.4. Sci-Fi Historical Leaders
Danil Polevoy is a well-trained photographer with a sense of humor and plenty of pop culture savvy. In this series, Polevoy places the historical pop culture figures of our time in past.
The result is freakishly convincing and totally hilarious. From Pope Darth Vader to General Yoda, Danil Polevoy definitely knows how to make two worlds collide in a masterpiece of marvelously fictional history. Check out the featured gallery to enjoy Danil Polevoy’s work.3. Sketch Photography
Stumbling upon Johan Thornqvist’s illustrations was a real treat because the world created from his art is one anyone would love to be a part of.
Thornqvist mixes fiction and reality together by incorporating sketches into actual photographs. Most of his pieces consist of miniature worlds behind photographed backgrounds portraying the harmonious everyday life of whimsical characters and animals living together.2. Makeshift Mini-Homes
The Dai Haifei ‘Egg House’ is an eco-conscious structure sitting at 6 feet high. This puny living space is the product of architecture student Dai Haifei’s struggle (and fail) to find a rental price in Beijing, China that suits him.
This makeshift mini-home was handcrafted by Haifei, consisting completely of bamboo, wood chippings and grass seed that Dai Haifei expects to bloom and flourish in the spring. Check out the Dai Haifei ‘Egg House’ in the gallery.
1. All-American Punktography
Stylist and photographer Antonella Arismendi captured the punky Yamil Castiglione gorgeously in this photo shoot entitled ‘Isolation.’ This shoot encapsulates the American badass in his urban surroundings, making for a captivating spread.
By connecting both the underlying punk theme against the the beauty of photography, Arismendi’s poetic shoot is unique and diverse. With such popularity regarding punk photo shoots, it’s no wonder why the public is embracing this venture.Read more on: TrendHunter.com
