The consensus about yesterday’s Evandro Soldati video for W by Santiago Sierra was a collective sproing! that tickled our Facebook Wall and caressed our Twitter mentions. Such is the captivating power of the 6’2″ (188 cm) Brazilian that he returns to this page for a print encore in the form of a Details August 2011 editorial by photographer Robbie Fimmano. Titled “The Change-Up,” the Benjamin Sturgill-styled story adopts a familiar didactic tone that is germane to men’s magazines of this sort. “Ten ways to tweak your wardrobe for a look that sets you apart this fall” announces the feature’s opening page. To that end, bold stripes, graphic sweatshirts, wide trousers, etc and so on are presented as wardrobe suggestions to what surely is a predominately straight male readership. The lesson could not be better delivered than by Evandro who for his third look wears a Burberry Prorsum sweater, Hermès T-shirt, Dior Homme wide trousers, Marc Jacobs belt, and Dries Van Noten shoes. To be sure these are looks for autumn and as such are a far cry from the cruel summer nothings of yesterday, but in both cases it is Evandro Soldati who drives home the message that makes our audience go sproing!
