With the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week S/S 2012 beginning Thursday morning there is time for one further introduction before schedules and deadlines become a complete shambles. The ready-to-wear runway season is just beginning for women, but for men designers all but rested their case in June with the Milan and Paris menswear shows. New York will make the closing remarks of this argument. To complete the case is a model new to our men’s board, meet Ford Men’s Frederik Tölke, native of Hamburg, Germany. No stranger to the runway, Frederik arrives with a distinctive European pedigree having walked runways for Jil Sander, Raf Simons, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Y-3, Miharayasuhiro, and Lanvin amongst others. Tölke also featured for the Topman F/W 2010 campaign sporting a modish peroxide do. These days Frederik’s hair is a bit shorter, sharper, and naturally blond, and very likely will feature along with the rest of the model on many runways in the coming week.
Watch the below video portrait of Frederik Tölke be sure to check out his official Ford Men model portfolio.
