Last week we gave you the teaser of David Gandy’s spread in GQ Taiwan, and today we’re officially back with the full editorial and behind-the-scenes video. Photographed by Chiun-Kai-Shih, the shoot and video see David take to the streets, riffing on the idea of the modern day gentleman. Styled by Marcus Teo in pieces by Shipley & Halmos, Todd Snyder and Brooks Brothers, we’d venture to say this man isn’t playing a part.
Ford Men’s Morgan O’Connor continues to be a friend of Ralph Lauren as one of the faces of its S/S 2014 campaign, shot by Arnaldo Anaya Lucca. While the collective conscious doesn’t typically associate dreadlocks with a blazer and tie, the 18-year-old’s classic facial structure and dimpled chin are perfectly attuned with his outfit. This is the new prep.
After starring in composed campaigns for the likes of Strellson and Dunhill London, Ford Men’s Chris Brown shows a more rough-and-tumble side for the newest issue of Men’s Health Best Fashion. Shot by Sven Bänziger, the editorial sees Chris exploring the city of Hamburg after hours. With bruised knuckles and a silver chain around his neck, this is a guy you wouldn’t mind running into in a dark alley.

Ford Men’s Eduardo stars in a new video that combines what are arguably two of the most tumbled things on the internet today: cats and abs. In it, Eduardo raps shirtless with three baby kittens serving as hypemen. The video also aims to raise awareness of The Humane Society, so no need to feel guilty for indulging.
It takes a certain model to drive a point home without any context. Hours before Chanel’s F/W 2014 runway, Ford Image’s Lexi was shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself for the brand’s F/W 2014 press kit. With a teased out ponytail and dogmatic stare, Lexi convey’s the collection’s play on upscale suburbia to a fault. This girl didn’t need a luxe supermarket to back her up.
Models do more than just look good. Ford Men’s Nate continues to explore his passion for music, recently scoring the film Now For Then by Mikey DeTemple for Jack Spade. With a hazy dream pop sound, Nate’s arrangement perfectly encapsulates East Coast surf culture.
Is there anything sexier than a man in a suit? Well, maybe a man in a classic car. Ford Men’s Kevin zips across a 5 page spread in vintage Seat models for the newest issue of Forbes Spain. Shot by Alicia Aguilera, stylist Beñat Yanci clads Kevin in pieces from Louis Vuitton, Burberry Prorsum and Hugo Boss. Clearly this is a man who appreciates a timeless brand whether it be automotive or apparel.
Christophe Lemaire has a way of boiling things down to their essence, and that’s exactly what he did for the Hermès Fall/Winter 2014 runway, featuring Ford Image’s Lexi. The model walked with a calm palate and clean look completely devoid of any frivolous embellishments. This was Lexi in her purest form.
There was something endearingly sweet about the Miu Miu F/W 2014 runway, featuring Ford Image’s Alyosha, Lexi and Joanna. Walking in sugary looks with candy colors, thse girls felt like they were headed off to their first day of junior high. It was perfectly fitting for the little sister brand of Prada.
Sarah Burton seemed to be paying homage to Alexander McQueen’s Scottish collections this season, but her version of this world was more darkly Gaelic. Ford Image’s Lexi walked with a spectral white face and primeval braids. This girl was the thing that myths are made of.
