Tommy Hilfiger knows how to party and especially so during the holidays. Proof positive is the new 60 second spot called “House Par-Tay” that sees the return of Bernard Fouquet (Ford Men Direct) in his role as Hilfiger patriarch. As far as campaigns go, the unabashedly Wes Anderson-inspired series by creative director Trey Laird and photographer Craig McDean is a consumer favorite. What’s not to love in seeing Bernard boogie in this all-night disco party?
Nestled in the shadows of Citi Field in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, Queens is an enclave of auto repair garages, transmission specialists, and junk yards. Although the manufacturing sliver of the New York City Planning Commission zoning map doesn’t appear in any of the glossy brochures for the recently built Mets stadium, it does figure prominently as backdrop for a shadowy Essential Homme November / December 2011 editorial featuring Linus Gustin (Ford Men) photographed by Marco Falcetta.
PRETTY PARTY STYLE. dresses that POP, jewels that SPARKLE, and shoes that ROCK. PLUS the coolest jacket you’ll ever own. The previous three phrases in all their typographical incongruity are but a selection of the many attention grabbing headlines that appear on Teen Vogue December / January 2012.

Anne Sophie Monrad (Ford) features in a new editorial by photographer David Urbanke in the online magazine The Ones2Watch New Wave. The Jordan Bradfield and Jamie Kreindler-styled story adopts a much sunnier approach to its blonde heroine than its shadowy, film noir namesake “I Walk Alone” starring Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas ever would have deigned.
Although Corinna Ingenleuf (Ford) recently moved to New York, the German model’s presence in leading European editions of Vogue has gone uninterrupted since summer. The other week her Richard Burbridge Vogue Italia story was mentioned in Daily Links and today it is her portrait by Max von Gumppenberg & Patrick Bienert in Vogue Deutsch November 2011 that is of particular interest.
On the Level
While most citizens would think twice about slipping into a pair of second-skin leather pants for day, models are not most citizens. So it’s not Karmen’s legwear that caught our eye, rather her pairing with a feminine, fitted jacket on top. It’s very ladies who lunch, without any of the attendant stuffiness. Another notch on the cool scale? Contrasting animal-print accessories and a pair of aviators, which are more ladies who rock.
