Break out your glittery man heels. Dust off those festive menswear sweaters, replete with Dior Homme Fall 2007 drop-crotch silhouettes crocheted à la paper dolls in a day-glo color palette straight outta Jil Sander Menswear Spring 2011…t’is the season for menswear! To celebrate the turn toward high fashion for carriers of the Y chromosome is a brilliant story in Interview June / July 2012 featuring John Hein (Ford Men) photographed by Craig McDean. Titled “Double Vision,” the Karl Templer-styled story examines this season’s flirtation with duplicate layers against a backdrop papered over with iconic tear sheets. John duly opens the story (Slide 1) wearing jackets and shirt by Bottega Veneta over the top of a Vivienne Westwood shirt (worn throughout story). On the opposite page (Slide 2) John is pictured wearing a Dolce & Gabbana coat, Comme des Garçons shirt, Salvatore Ferragamo trousers, and boots by Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière. Expressively styled hair by Eugene Souleiman accentuates the layers at play throughout the editorial to greatest effect on the next page (Slide 3). John sits on tall chair, hands in lap, staring toward the camera wearing a suit and sailor collar by Jil Sander, shirt by Raf Simons, bracelet by Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, and shoes by Prada. The interplay between the story’s masculine subject and its feminine context supplies the editorial throughout with a playful tension that is brought to crescendo with the sparkle of John Hein’s eyes.
