Fucking Young! magazine continues to offer its inspirational and highly stylised take on art, fashion, music, film and pop culture, with its latest editorial inspired by the 1927 Fritz Lang sci-fi spectacular "Metropolis" - one of the most amazing movies ever made.

The underlying occult message within the film and its striking visuals of a hellish industrial existence within a monstrous machine, has inspired artists including 
Madonna (who referenced the film in her set for the "Express Yourself" video), Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Kylie Minogue.

With photography by Alek Pierre and styling
 by Alba Melendo Garcia, the AW13 / 14 shoot sees model Paul Boche transported back to the future clad in Givenchy, Prada, Lanvin, Jil Sander, Calvin Klein Collection and Kris Van Assche, among other designers.
The editorial is also accompanied for the magazine's online platform with a short film directed by Giorgia Benazzo, which pays homage to Lang's eerie signature of German expressionism, and the futuristic dystopia within the film which explored the struggle between thinkers and workers. 

Watch Fucking Young and Benazzo's take below, and you can also buy the latest issue which features the editorial HERE.
