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.

Buried under Magazine Mountain is an urgent sticky note that reads “Paris Mode Masculine PE 2012! N’oubliez pas!” The little French I do know has resulted either in a chastening glass of champagne in the face or a chastening glass sans champagne in the face. Needless to say trotting out the language with which William conquered England in 1066 is not my wont. But, talk of French and fall 2011 couture winding down today has me thinking this morning would be a good time to once and for all bury those increasingly moribund Paris menswear shows. The headlines from Milano were clearly translated for our francophone friends for it was they who duly followed suit and also booked Adrien Sahores on the most shows of the week — thirteen (13) to raise his total to an astounding twenty-five (25) for the season. Rare is the model who does well in either Milano or Paris and rarer still is a master of both cities in all their disparity. Adrien’s Twitter hashtag of #ThisGuyMan now truly makes sense, no? Adrien’s feat is followed closely behind by Adrian Bosch and Aiden Andrews, both of whom featured in eight (8) shows with the latter notching fifteen (15) for the entire season. Elsewhere there were impressive openers by Francisco Lachowski (Issey Miyake), Lyle Lodwick (Comme des Garçons), Sen Mitsuji (Phillip Lim 3.1), and Zakaria Khiare (Paul Smith). All told, the Paris shows for our guys weren’t too shabby. Until next January, it’s au revoir for this menswear season in Paris… .
