Smoke and steam continue billowing out of the Department of Old News for this story which features Ford Men’s Ian O’Brien for the Marc by Marc Jacobs F/W 10 campaign photographed by Juergen Teller. The dual American-British national enjoyed an eventful menswear season walking for Versace, Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens, Yohji Yamamoto, Kenzo, and Paul Smith. Come autumn on the beach it’ll be cold outside…don’t forget your mittens.
From the Department of Old News comes this story…Ford Men’s Adrian Bosch features for the Bruuns Bazaar F/W 10 campaign photographed by Danish Henrik Bülow. The Bruuns brothers Teis & Bjørn forecast autumn in Denmark to be a cozy affair inside wrapped up in books with the leggy Anna Selezneva. We’re sold. Step aside, Adrien, we’ll handle it from here.
Ford’s Hanne Gaby Odiele features for the Mulberry F/W 10 campaign photographed by Steven Meisel. Mulberry’s Alexa bag is of course front and center for this campaign as it has been since the S/S 10 introduction, but takes a departure from solids to splotchy patterns that could be characterized as equal parts celebration and hangover.
On Thursday Ford’s Dafne Cejas featured on The Cut as the new girl. You will of course recognize the Argentinian from the memorable editorial “Paradise Lost” that appeared in V65 by photographer Sebastian Faena with styling by Robbie Spencer.
Ford’s Antonella Graef appears in a July 2010 Vogue Russia editorial photographed by Ben Weller and styled by Simon Robins. The Ford Models Blog has yet to get its mitts all over the Condé Nast glossy inked front to back in the Cyrillic alphabet, the type of which we have no pretension whatsoever of even pretending to read.
Smoke, granite, luxury handbags…enter Ford’s Karmen Pedaru for the Emporio Armani F/W 10 campaign photographed by Mario Sorrenti. The dramatic stage is set for our heroine to emerge from the nearest point of egress from either a building on fire or a building styled to appear to be in some early stage of combustion.
To say that a certain Crystal Renn picture from the other week caused a ripple in the sometimes very shallow pond that is the blogosphere would be a gross understatement. For much of the time the response more resembled a typhoon wrapped inside a hurricane riding atop a tsunami.
Most tigers over a century old are either museum pieces or, sadly, floor coverings from a bygone era. Not so for the Tiger of Sweden, the Swedish clothier founded in 1903, whose F/W 10 campaign features Ford Men’s Linus Gustin photographed by Marcus Ohlsson. This tiger is deadly in that drop-dead handsome sort of way.
The first time ever we saw a picture reblogged over a thousand times on Tumblr it was of Ford Men’s Francisco Lachowski. By no means is our hypothesis rooted in the scientific method, but we surmise it’s that je ne sais quoi that makes Francisco the people’s overwhelming favorite. Then of course there is Francisco’s boyish insouciance, which must account for at least a couple hundred of those reblogs.
Ford Men‘s Aiden Andrews features in a T Magazine editorial photographed by Matthew Kristall with fashion editing by Jason Rider. Titled “Common Thugs” the story waxes lyrical on the sagging drawers that have been prevalent amongst youth of the last two decades.
