1950S PREP

Ponyboy photographed top male model Samuel Roberts from the Fusion Agency in New York City for our 1950s Ivy League-themed men’s editorial. Samuel was the perfect model for our story with his blonde-haired, blue-eyed waspy good looks – think Robert Redford’s character “Hubbell” from The Way We Were. Styled by Xina Giatas, we mixed vintage and modern designers to give our model a bit of that tattered well-bred look that is so de rigueur on East Coast Ivy League college campuses and prep schools. Our favorite traditional pieces had to be a vintage Brooks Brother’s fisherman sweater, a Ralph Lauren madras blazer, and of course the classic Bass Weejun, which NEVER goes out of style in any prep’s wardrobe.
