Brooklyn photographer Vince Chase hopes you’ll get “cast away” by his recent editorial for DYVERS Magazine. The aptly titled Rockaway Castaway features Shawn Cruz, a model representing Chase Models NY. Chase founded Chase Models NY in 2006. His main focus for the agency is to produce edgy, experimental, and evocative imagery. Shot in both color and black/white, Rockaway Castaway evokes the spirit of Chase Models NYC as Shawn delivers his role as a castaway with an unforced yet blatant sensuality.
In the shoot, Shawn models two styles by Rufskin: a Rufskin black Cadaques swim brief and a white Rufskin Kaan body suit. The Rufskin Cadaques collection was inspired by the Catalonian regions of Southern France and Spain. The collection of classic cut swim briefs comes in nine different hues. It was featured in Rufskin’s 2013 spring/summer collection, a collection that owner and head designer, Hubert Pouches, saw as a step in the right direction for Rufskin when he spoke to The Underwear Expert back in March. “We are now a more settled brand, and this collection is about where you come from and what you really like, an affirmation of what we are all about,” said Pouches. “The traveling we do. All the elements came together quickly and then we went for it. From there to swim, we took everything around Catalonia.”
Shawn is also pictured in a white Rufskin Kaan body suit. The stylish take on the wrestling singlet, is made up of a soft and comfortable mesh. The Rufskin Kaan body suit is designed to be the best option for your workouts, providing a wide range of motion with its deep armholes and brief cut.
