Adrien Sahores & Francisco Lachowski for Dsquared² F/W 11 by Damien Neva

Tracking down every last fall campaign in which Ford talent features is not unlike assembling a Panini World Cup sticker album. Collecting the stickers can be well tedious compared to actually watching Lionel Messi tear defenses asunder. The same holds for cataloguing fall campaigns, which in the fashion mind tend to congeal into one solid glossy mass by the time the shows begin in September. That said, some campaigns and models filter to the top and also wind up on this page like Ford Men’s Adrien Sahores and Francisco Lachowski for the Dsquared² F/W 11 campaign by Mert & Marcus have today. If you bought V72 last Thursday (and if not, then you should still, buy it now!), then you will have noticed the gorgeous black & white campaign Dsquared² in the opening pages of the issue a page after the Hugo Boss campaign and one before the Belvedere Vodka advert. Adrien closed the Dsquared² P/E 2012 show last month in Milano and together with the Brazilian are arguably two of the shrewdest advertising bookings today. No other male models prompt the sort of enthusiasm that Adrien Sahores and Francisco Lachowski generate, which once again is akin to the sort of fanaticism prompted by Lionel Messi. Come to think of it, there can be some enjoyment yet in highlighting campaigns just as there too is something deeply satisfying about completing a Panini album.

Milano Moda Uomo P/E 2012 Review by Damien Neva

Just as every dinner bill in Italy must be paid, whether it’s for the sort of cibo di strada peddled by Villa D’Este or aperetivi markedly less humble, so too comes the day of reckoning for every proper runway season to grace this page. Milano is still fresh in mind and even fresher still with the below show tallies meticulously tabulated by Rachel Walgrove. With the dizzying number of shows compressed into what is more realistically three and half rather than four days there are likely to be some unintended omissions, but for the most part this list rings true. Let’s start at the top with Adrien Sahores, who walked in thirteen (13) shows, closing three (3) shows including Z Zegna, DSquared², and Nicole Fahri. Next of course is Francisco Lachowski, who featured in twelve (12) shows, opening and closing Ermanno Scervino. Nikola Jovanovic was the third most ubiquitous model from the Ford Men ranks having walked in eight (8) shows, which is a logical outcome of him no longer being all but exclusive to the house of Gucci. Paolo Anchisi might have only walked on the first day of the season, but having opened Dolce & Gabbana, he couldn’t have sent out a stronger message of intent for the coming season. Having been in Milano for a week I believe I’ve caught a glimpse of the season to come. New boys were scouted by my Ford Men colleagues and like Adrien Sahores, Harry Goodwins, and Zakaria Khiare last season before them, they too are set to join the industry’s number one men’s board. Until then, however you can revel in the boys Ford Men currently represents with the below show listings and videos produced throughout the week. Until next January, it’s arrivederci for this menswear season in Milano… .

Anna Jagodzinska & Crystal Renn for Dsquared² S/S 11 by Damien Neva

No campaign season is complete without the showpiece fixture that is Dsquared² by photographers Mert & Marcus. Featuring for this season’s campaign are Ford’s Anna Jagodzinska and Crystal Renn. Having riffed on artist Damien Hirst last fall with inspired set design and dramatic lighting, the Dsquared² spring campaign takes a turn for the austere with crisp black & white portraiture. Styling by Katie Grand keeps it all very simple and direct.
