It takes an American model to rock stars and stripes with such palpable conviction. When it comes to fringed suede hotpants, oversized Western belt buckles and vintage 80s-cut leather jackets there’s an underlying principle that the sexiness of the look is really determined by the sexiness of the person wearing it. Luckily Abby Brothers has everything required: beauty, a sexual confidence that can be turned on with all the force of an industrial hose, and an American citizenship.
For such a dangerous, dusty, and raw vision of Americana, the right type of photography is required: high-gloss perfection just won’t cut it here. Michael Donovan gets the balance just right, as does the whole team including perfect styling by Priscilla Polley.
