Raw Power

July 16th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Karim Sadli‘s latest story for Dazed and Confused is pure, simple and completely fresh. Nicolas Ripoll poses in a series of jet black ensembles, each one more eye-catching than the last. Whether he is showing off a leather jacket or a dramatically laced bondage inspired piece Ripoll looks right at home in everything. Robbie Spencer‘s styling is a pitch perfect compliment for Sadli’s stripped down style and each element combines to create a uniquely powerful visual.
