Testino considers his “Towel Series” as something of a liberating lens in the industry. “I think girls and guys feel this freedom at being able to express themselves. There is no predetermined way of how you put the towel on,” says Testino. “You can do anything you want—wear it however you want. I have always treasured this kind of freedom: it’s rare.”
