Underground Kings by Sebastian Lucrecio for Trendland


nspired by Drake’s song “Underground Kings”  Sebastian Lucrecio and Soukena Roussi produced an editorial exclusively for Trendland, illuminating the talent that lurks in the shadows of the art world. For Lucrecio and Roussi, Underground Kings is all about the talented artists, designers, and models that are working hard and believing in their art, while remaining in the shadows of the unknown. The models in the shoot are all Underground Kings, being casted from everyday life they all embody a certain aesthetic; androgynous, introverted, stylish, and diverse. The concept is beautifully visualized through high contrast black and white photography, which helps to shine a spotlight on the jewelry that gives this shoot such a unique look. Intricate geometrical necklaces, cuffs, and head pieces take center stage, including a cuff by Anndrea Neen and a gun metal bangle by MAWI; Luckily for all underground kings out there lurking in their own shadow of style both pieces are now available in our shop.

“We believe what makes the world beautiful is diversity and that needs to be shown”
