Photographer Karim Konrad takes us back to basics with a sexy yet understated photo shoot featuring José Pedro Mascarell in some of our favorite teamm8 pieces. Karim photographs José with subtle lighting and in muted colors, giving a seductive and almost sensual perspective to the teamm8 underwear and sportswear staples. As if we weren’t intrigued by teamm8 already; this photo shoot has made these pieces nearly irresistible.
Shot in front of a plain, dark background, José is seen posing in a pair of teamm8 Super Low Briefs. The super low rise fit of these tempting briefs accentuates the hips flawlessly. These super stylish briefs feature a subtle logo waistband which keeps in keeping with the understated theme of the shoot. The black and white photographs add to the subdued and delicate nature of this Karim Konrad shoot; avoiding all distractions and allowing us to focus on the underwear.
In a more moody and delicate lighting, Karim also photographs José outside in a pair of teamm8 Sprint Shorts, Hang Shorts and Rider Sweat Pants. The muted color scheme allows us to see these athletic pants as more than just practical workout gear, but also as stylish and comfortable articles of clothing. The Sprint Shorts fall near Jose’s upper thigh, whereas the Sweat Pants and Hang Shorts prove to be just as easy and comfortable as they are slick and fashionable.
The photo series reintroduces us to the teamm8 Mate Brief, which José is seen wearing underneath his Rider Sweat Pants, and also on their own paired with a ribbed-tank top. The Mate Brief is looking better than ever in an even lower cut. The super low-cut feature gives it more of an edge, without having to compromise on its super-comfy fit.
