Masculinity as we know it has undergone a sea change—the necessity to conform to artless machismo has been washed away. In its wake, a new man is visible on the horizon—one whose evolution is characterised by fluidity, flair and poise. London-based Gambian musician and model Junior Choi, star of The New Man, embodies an updated iteration of the trite sartorial cliché of androgyny. Indifferent to the notion of his appearance being seen as too feminine, he pulls off deep fuchsia trousers, embraces bold florals and bares his open torso with a leather jacket. Choi’s looks are finished off with touches of gold in the form of Paco Rabanne 1 Million ingots – proving that this new man is one that will continue to shine.
