The last time I saw Ford Men’s Paolo Anchisi it was at Milk Studios last month on a cold Tuesday morning during New York Fashion Week. The occasion was the presentation of the RAD by Rad Hourani Collection #3. The styling logistics of outfitting the models with their first looks could not have been more complicated. Pouring even a lithe Paolo Anchisi into a pair of unforgiving black tights, the collection’s foundational garment, seemed to require the proverbial two men and a boy. All the same, the end result was beyond reproach and spoke to both Rad Hourani‘s sartorial nous and Paolo’s versatility as a model. It is this very versatility that comes to mind with Paolo’s latest editorial feature in Dansk Spring / Summer 2011 by photographer Chris Craymer and fashion editor Toby Grimditch. The unencumbered styling of this story, which borrows its title from a song by The Killers, “A White Demon Love Song,” couldn’t provide a more marked contrast to Paolo’s jet black look #10 from last month. The story opens with a moody black & white portrait of Paolo wearing a striped top by Tim Hamilton and black trousers by Yohji Yamamoto. The rest of this Spring / Summer story continues in much the same manner without overembellishing the looks with needless accessories and thus allows the model to shine. Then again, Paolo Anchisi always shines.
