Having only yesterday unpacked the contents of my carry-on luggage from Milano I was reminded of a slew of other women’s stories (see also Sigrid Agren) in a barely cracked copy of Muse, the first Malpensa purchase after a requisite caffé dopio upon landing the other week. Bagging the issue after having seen it dangled before my North American eyes for twenty odd days felt immensely satisfying, but with the impending menswear shows ultimately gave way to a sensation not unlike when after having marveled at a lone winged horse one happens upon a meadow of grazing unicorns. Muse in the midst of the menswear shows is about as off-topic as 95% of the comments on Facebook.com/FordModels. After Milano, after Paris, however the Muse 26 editorial titled “Countryside” that features Ford’s Maryna Linchuk photographed by Dan Martensen couldn’t be more on topic. The Belarusian model has lately appeared in the gritty Dolce & Gabbana F/W 11 campaign by Steven Klein, but goes pastoral for this carefree romp through the tall grasses far away from the urban grid. Maryna opens the story wearing Paul Smith trousers and necklaces by Tod’s, Aesa, and Jensen Conroy. The story really takes off with a flourish of a rust-colored Marc Jacobs dress and continues on through to a black Emilio Pucci dress, Giorgio Armani cape, and Jensen Conroy necklace for the final look. As refreshing as this story is, Muse 26 is good for a couple more still and until then, please enjoy “Countryside” with Maryna Linchuk.
