Photographer Ben Toms and stylist Robbie Spencer teamed up with set designer Janina Pedan to create the surreal and minimalist world which provided the setting for their mens fashion editorial, Animal Haus, in the June issue of Dazed + Confused. According to the magazine, Pedan took reference from Bauhaus design motifs, and a Marcel Breuer photograph of a woman wearing an Oscar Shlemmer mask, as she also created the custom animal masks worn by Belgian models Frederik Meijnen and Louis Steyaert. Meijnen and Steyaert wear Raf Simons, Prada, Gucci, Chapman Brothers, and more.
