Evandro Soldati | Details August 2011 by Damien Neva

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!

Evandro Soldati | Wmagazine.com June 2011 by Damien Neva

Last week photographer Santiago Sierra‘s work surfaced on this page in the form of that excellent Luciana Curtis Elle México cover story. Although his work is relatively new to this page, he has a long since established his name in the industry as the go-to auteur for fine moving imagery. His CV, which includes having worked with Mert & Marcus, Inez & Vinoodh, and other leading photographers, describes exactly the sort of heady matrix in which his visual sensibilities developed. Sierra’s still photography is no doubt accomplished, but it is in moving pictures where he has truly excelled. Take for example his latest video “Cruel Summer” starring Ford Men’s Evandro Soldati and Marloes Horst (Next), which was featured on Wmagazine.com the other week. Having absolutely nothing to do with its Bananarama namesake, this slow motion study in all that is equally desirous and nearly unattainable from swimwear to six packs yields a potent blend of pleasure and frustration or, in other words, the base ingredients of any “cruel summer.”

Please visit Wmagazine.com to see the entire “Cruel Summer” video by Santiago Sierra featuring Evandro Soldati.

Milano Moda Uomo A/W 11-12 Review by Damien Neva

Whatever the Ford Models Blog thought it had learned during New York Fashion Week in September of last year gave it enough confidence for it to think it could tackle the January menswear shows in Milan. Foolhardy perhaps, but risk is this page’s wont and especially so when the rewards are as great as they are in Milan. The fashion capital of Italy in particular affords models with Ford Men not only an opportunity to walk for many of the world’s top menswear designers, but also to make some money in the process — “trade” shows are about as alien as bad coffee is in Milan. The six full days spent in Milan were busy to say the least and along the way the Ford Models Blog spent a considerable amount of time at the shows with Aiden Andrews, Adrien Sahores, Christian Brylle, Douglas Neitzke, Bobby Nicholas, Eric Watts, Isaac Carew, and Linus Gustin. We also had the pleasure of meeting Lars Burmeister, Evandro Soldati, Nikola Jovanovic, Antonio Navas, Tom Warren, Johan Johansson, Michael Wozniak, Andre Condit, Louis Rado, and a handful of other boys Ford Men will hopefully be representing in New York very soon.

The first show we attended in the week was Costume National, which featured Aiden Andrews, Christian Brylle, and Douglas Neitzke. As it turned out Aiden opened the show despite not even having done a fitting prior to the 0900 call time Saturday morning. An impromptu fitting took place that morning and not before long Aiden was outfitted with the opening look by designer Ennio Capasa. After that show we made a mad dash to Jil Sander where were joined by Adrien Sahores of Ford Homme Paris. Guido Palau was on hand working with plenty of product to see to it that hair did his bidding for Belgian designer Raf Simons. Guido was of course at many of the top shows not least of which included the Bottega Veneta F/W 11 presentation, which featured Eric Watts and Bobby Nicholas. We ended the week of shows on Tuesday with Neil Barrett and Z Zegna.

When we weren’t gadding about with the models to shows, we were attending parties such as the one hosted by Dolce & Gabbana on the Saturday night hours after their show earlier in the day. Held in the opulent Dolce & Gabbana menswear retail space on Corso Venezia the party was packed to the hilt, but we nevertheless still managed to say hello to Ford Men’s Lars Burmeister, Evandro Soldati, and Antonio Navas all of whom featured in the F/W 11 show. André Ziehe and photographer Mariano Vivanco, however proved elusive attendees despite their shared prominence from the Dolce & Gabbana Uomini volume. Judging the book by the cover it’s hardly surprising we were unable to reach them in the well crowded space, they were likely surrounded fifty deep by fellow guests and admirers alike.

We also enjoyed meeting our fine colleagues from Ford Homme Paris, D’Management Group, Future Models, and Unique Copenhagen with whom we share many models — this was easily one of the highlights of an already eventful week. Things we missed in Milano included meeting up with Francisco Lachowski, but given that he featured in ten shows it is understandable — next time, Chico! We also missed going inside the Duomo and venturing up to the San Siro, which are easily the two most holy sites in all of Milan. Come June we’ll hopefully put that right and until we do that, then please enjoy this photo and video review of the Ford Models Blog week in Milan.
