There is something irresistible about an $18 magazine. As far as magazine prices it’s no Cristal, but all the same the barrier to entry for the journal is significantly greater than other domestic fashion magazines in its class. The rewards, however are not insignificant at this price point when you consider the fifty page cover story editorial by Juergen Teller not to mention the rich paper stock on which its printed. Dig a little deeper into Entry 29 of the journal and you will find an editorial by photographer Maciek Kobielski simply titled “Fashion,” which features Ford Men’s Christian Brylle. The 6’1″ (185 cm) Dane can be seen jumping off a small pile of cardboard boxes wearing a Raf Simons leather coat, Rag & Bone cropped sweater, Siki Im wool wrapped skirt, and Rag & Bone boots. Preposterous though it may appear, the shoot itself was purposeful in getting precisely this shot. The Ford Models Blog learned from the model himself during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week S/S 11 that he was made to repeatedly jump off this cardboard platform until the photographer got his shot. No other shots were attempted, just this, and to great effect. It couldn’t have been executed any better than it has, which is the least one would expect from an $18 magazine.
