Upcoming Italian designer Nicola Indelicato links with art director Dave Rodriquez and stylist Piermattia Aiello for a new editorial dubbed “BROMANCE.” The shoot looks back to the late ’90s and early ’00s nu-metal scene, but brings it back into the present day fashion conversation via contemporary styling and pieces selected from Indelicato’s collections.

“It’s about a bunch of kids from the countryside who want to escape the reality they live in,” Rodriquez explains. “They don’t feel part of their community – nothing interesting happens and it’s very hard to succeed in life. They have goals but they learned the only way to feel accomplished is by escaping reality in their dreams, by being together like brothers and daydreaming a world that reflects their ambitions.”
