A KALTBLUT exclusive menswear editorial from Belgium. Starring Andrew Butler. The driving force behind retro-futurist kingpins Hercules & Love Affair. Photography by Stephen Mattues. Styled by Stoffie using AW16 items by Walter Van Beirendonck, Emilie Thirion, La Fille d’O, Björn Borg x Craig Green, Rick Owens, KTZ, Bernhard Willhelm amongst others. Art Direction by Iris Rombouts. Hair and make up by by Muriëlle Vercruysse. Andrew Butler´s devotion to dance music always ran parallel to Andy’s fascination with the freedom offered by disco’s hedonism. From his teenage years, DJing at underground leather nights in his native Denver, to his escape to New York, home to the original wild gay nightworld that gave birth to rave culture, to inventing Hercules & Love Affair as an outlet for his songs, music was always at the heart of it.
