Chad White as a Fashion-Forward Icarus


Just to refresh your memories, Icarus was the son of Daedalus, who crafted two sets of wax wings so he and his son could escape exile in Crete. He warned Icarus not to fly too close to the sun, which Icarus did. Icarus fell into the sea. Of course, he wasn’t wearing a feather scarf by Burberry Prorsum at the time.

    No wonder had to sell that magazine. Those girls at OUT are getting fancier and fancier with every issue. Beautiful photos tho.

    That’s about the gayest picture I’ve ever seen. And I say that with zero complaints, big weird knee bones and all.

    Yet another stunner of a shoot from the outrageously talented Francois Rousseau. His continued exploration around themes of mortality continually fascinates me and his artist’s eye is just magnificent. Bravo!
