Frankly speaking nearly any story involving fashion editor and stylist Nicola Formichetti is worthy of mention not least because of his multiply held creative directing and fashion editing roles for Dazed & Confused and Vogue Hommes Japan. Formichetti’s work as a stylist for brands Uniqlo, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and the odd pop star is a testament his currency in the world of fashion.
From the Dept. of Old News comes this banger of a story…yup, nothing you haven’t already seen on MDC, The Fashionisto, or tFS. It just so happens that the issue in question arrived on these shores only just this week. We of course are talking about the Vogue Hommes Japan A/W 10 editorial that features amongst others Ford Men’s Aiden Andrews and AJ Abualrub photographed by Miguel Reveriego.
So far as the Ford Models Blog can tell it is never too late to post a Mad Max cum raptor story no matter how many rounds it has done on the interweb. And so it ought to surprise no one that we’re chuffed to bits over Ford Men’s Linus Gustin appearing in Numéro Homme 20 photographed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.
Week 42 of 2010 surely ought to be considered Le non-officiel L’Officiel Hommes week with no fewer than four stories including this entry having been posted to the Ford Models Blog. Not that we are complaining! On the contrary, it is cause for celebration of the black tie variety on show by Ford Men’s Aiden Andrews and Isaac Carew in L’Officiel Hommes Germany 2 editorial photographed by Andreas Larsson and styled by Marcus Zietz.
Magazine covers are brilliant in the way that they require little or no context outside of simply being what they are: A periodical’s outermost page that traditionally displays the publication’s logo, volume, date, and, crucially, the issue’s leading subject in the form of a photograph, illustration, and/or typographic arrangement.
Ford Men new boy Federico Cola features in L’Officiel Hommes Italia 3 photographed by Milan Vukmirovic. Titled “Color Carne” or flesh color in lingua inglese the twenty-four page story (give or take a dozen caption-only white pages) has certainly done the rounds on the interweb here and there, but as of yet not in the context of our formidable men’s division.
In the time it takes to refresh a smart phone application Ford Men’s Ethan James hoovers up another fall campaign. Take for example his below feature for Resurrection by Juyoung photographed by Eli Schmidt. Or, how about Ethan riding shotty for the Customellow F/W 10 campaign photographed by Niall O’Brien?
FTW…it’s Hannelore Knuts for Lanvin for H&M Fall 2010 Preview! After a very upside-down 24 hours the Ford Models Blog is very pleased to see one of its favorite Belgian models land this equally unique campaign that pairs the exclusive designs of Alber Elbaz with the mass market reach of the Swedish big box clothier giant.
Oui…French Revue de Modes once again has done that thing where they print thirty-seven different covers of the same issue, but only this time for French #17 they have published thirteen unique covers photographed by Thierry Le Gouès.
Ford’s Caroline Corinth features in Teen Vogue Nov. 2010 photographed by Paul Wetherell. As with Teen Vogue, ever the younger and always lovable junior to big sister Vogue in the Condé Nast clan, the Ford Models Blog isn’t quite sure what’s up, what’s down, what’s an advert, or what’s an editorial [That's the point - Ford Models Blog Ed.].
