Same-sex couple from Atlanta, Kordale Lewis and Kaleb Anthony star in Acne Studios' Fall 2017 campaign.

Emphasizing a "modern family" of this generation, the editorial captured by famed photographers Inez and Vinoodh, features Lewis and Anthony hanging around a New York City hotel room while on a family vacation with their four children -- Desmiray (10 years old), Maliyah (9), Kordale Jr (8) and Kaleb Jr (6 months) -- all of which are flaunting matching striped polo shirts from Acne.

Creative director, Jonny Johansson also shared, “Since Acne Studios started as a collective, we would see each other as a family back in the days. I therefore wanted to portray households of today, in all constellations.”

Further speaking on the concept of a "modern family," here's what the two had to say:

...on what a "modern family" means to them

Kaleb: "A modern family is 2017. A modern family can be an interracial couple, a modern family can be a gay couple, a modern family can be a heterosexual couple. A modern family is one that loves their children and loves to be together as one, despite their sexual preferences or the color of their skin."

Kordale: "Today, a modern family is not defined by a man and a woman. It can be two parents, or one parent, taking care of kids. You have single parents, homosexual parents, straight parents, then you also have parents who do the surrogate thing to have a baby. It's a couple that is willing to provide for their kids."

...on having such a large social media following and being role models

Kordale: Not so much. At first, yeah, but I've got to a point in my life where I just want to be happy and locked into who I am. It's a problem when people scrutinize their lives and worry too much what people say, until the point where they're really not happy. I want to be myself 100%.
