Blanket flash, manic smiles, beautiful girl without trousers…yup, it undeniably bears the hallmarks of a Terry Richardson photograph. It so happens that said photograph is also the first to emerge for the Sisley S/S 11 campaign featuring none other than Ford Men’s AJ Abualrub.
Denim. You might be wearing some or that’s at least what features editor Maxime Martin of Antidote reckons. “[Jeans] have demonstrated their strength and their capacity to impose their style in every era and have become the symbol of many philosophies of life.” True dat. So confident in her appraisal of denim is she teamed up with editor-in-chief Yann Weber and photographer Thomas Lagrange for the inaugural issue of Antidote, which has been appropriately enough dubbed “The Denim Issue.”
On Sunday the Ford Models Blog couldn’t for the holiday break to conclude (honest) and went ahead to posted Karmen Pedaru‘s Gucci S/S 11 campaign. Well, as it turns out there’s more to this campaign than just the fair Estonian.

Yes, it’s that sort of book, a coffee table volume that presents idealized man in the altogether or at the very most a pair of Dolce briefs. Dolce & Gabbana Uomini, which means “men” in Italiano, celebrates twenty years of the luxury fashion house founded by Domenico e Stefano and also serves as a charitable vehicle for the EUPLOOS Project.
The interweb has been banging on about this story for months, but only just days before Christmas did the magazine actually reach newsstands in Manhattan. Issue in hand we’re ready as ever to discuss. We’re of course talking about Bullett Volume 1 featuring Ford Men’s Ethan James photographed by Nicholas Routzen.
Happy New Year, dear readers. Normally we’d wait until the agency officially opens Monday, but here’s a campaign that we can’t keep in the cupboard for another 24 hours.
