Lately, any Paolo Roversi story that does not feature Ford’s Valerija Kelava is by default headline news. Having featured in four editorials by the Italian in the span of six months, you could be forgiven for thinking Valerija would be even money to be in his next story to appear on this page. As it turns out, however the honor falls to Ford Men’s Adrian Bosch, who can be seen in Vogue Hommes International Spring / Summer 2011. Titled “Portraits,” the Jacob K-styled story opens with the Dane wearing a cotton jacket by Jil Sander, floral polyester dress (yessir) by Blustons London, and a cotton shirt by Louis Vuitton. The floral-dress leitmotif runs through the remainder of the story, which once again can be seen hiked up for Adrian’s second look, a wool jacket with satin lapels and wool trousers by Etro, cotton dress shirt by Strellson, silk tie by Prada, and, yup, a polyester print dress, again by Blustons London. Bereft of the model who is arguably Paolo Roversi’s de facto muse, it is perhaps not surprising to see a symbolic dress pass from look to look and thus signify the very figure absent in each portrait. Then again, those dresses could be just a wry dig at menswear for what is the thirteenth issue of Vogue Hommes International. Either way, Adrian Bosch flawlessly acquits himself and thereby snatches back the headlines.
