These days when I’m not listening to German post-industrial musicians Einstürzende Neubauten, then I can be found leafing through the pages of GQ Style Germany Frühjahr – Sommer 2011. What does the former have to do with the latter? The umlaut over the u of course. Beyond that, nothing save being yoked together by dint of non sequitur. Contrast that with the wanton typecasting of Ford Men’s Paolo Anchisi for yet another “new hunting season” story, which appears this time in the aforementioned issue of GQ Style Germany by photographer Arnaldo Anaya-Lucca. The Germans are completely bonkers for outdoorsy stories (Goethe‘s Faust much?) and in our man they too have theirs, who duly opens the Andreas Krings-styled hunting party wearing a safari jacket by Bennetton, trousers by Z Zegna, shirt and scarf by Savlatore Ferragamo, and leather shoulder strap by Eduard Meier. To be clear, though this isn’t your conventional hilfloses Lämmchen (“babe in the woods” auf Deautsch) tale, nay, it’s a 2011 reboot wherein hiking sandals (Trekking-Sandalen) are worn with military jackets (Militärjacken). Not to worry, though as some safari dos and don’ts are sacrosanct, such as having to wear a belt (Gürtel) with a safari jacket (Saharienne). In the end, unlike this post’s failed German-language free-associative gambit, GQ Style Germany’s casting of the ever-handsome, always modern Paolo Anchisi appears not only warranted, but wholly inspired.
