DEVID GUALANDRIS & THIBAUD GUYONNET
The style duo from Berlin love wide trousers, Velcro and crazy sandals. See how Devid and Thibaud, known as the Starecasers, style their favourite new H&M items.
With Devid being Italian and Thibaud being French, it's only natural that the partners in business, style and love have chosen to live in Berlin. Aside from geographically being (kind of) in between their countries of origin, it's also a city where young people can experiment with fashion, art, culture and anything else in a way that's incomparable to most other places on the planet.
For six years the two have been a couple, and during their time together they've established themselves as the Starecasers with the namesake fashion and lifestyle blog for men.
Photographer Adam Katz Sinding met up with Devid and Thibaud in Berlin and followed them around the city. Both are wearing some pieces from H&M Man's latest capsule collection – which you can shop at the bottom of this page.
After the shoot, H&M Magazine asked them a bunch of questions. Read on to get to know the Starecasers a little better.
