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!

Please visit FordModels.com to see Evandro’s official Ford Men portfolio.

Christian Brylle | Wonderland Nov/Dec 2010 by Damien Neva

Such is this page’s love for all things Christian Brylle that it will spare no expense at putting him on the Ford Models Blog. From the extraordinary story he photographed for VMAN 20 to the nigh ridiculous cardboard box jumping routine in the journal, it will feature on this page. The man from Denmark can be seen in Wonderland November / December 2010 in a story photographed by Robbie Fimmano and styled by fashion editor Christan Stroble. Wearing a scarf as a headband as is his wont along with a khaki shirt by Dior Homme, leather vest by Maison Martin Margiela, denim jacket by Levi’s, and jeans by CK Jeans Christian quietly stands there in a manner quite unlike is off-camera demeanor — if you didn’t know, he’s a bit of a conversationalist. 😀

Ford Men | Interview Magazine July 2010 by Damien Neva

Back in May when we introduced you to Ford Men’s Michael Wozniak we mentioned a certain Interview Magazine editorial for which he was photographed. A couple months later the pay-off is oh so sweet. Late last week The Fashionisto posted a preview of the story styled by Karl Templer and photographed by Robbie Fimmano which celebrates the twentieth anniversary of Dolce & Gabbana. Michael is joined by fellow Ford Men Francisco Lachowski, Ian O’Brien, Max Motta, and Paolo Anchisi for this story.

Please visit The Fashionisto for more information on this story.

Introducing Michael Wozniak by Damien Neva

Meet Michael Wozniak, 6’2″ (188 cm), 20-years-old, winner of the VMAN FORD MODEL SEARCH and currently on the cover of VMAN18 photographed by Terry Richardson. Two weeks after the Florida native’s pictures were submitted to VMAN for consideration Michael had already met with Ford agents and was shortlisted as a finalist. Sometimes new models struggle with the transition into fashion, but not Michael. He also studies business and is a member of the Saint Leo University men’s golf team.

Earlier this month Michael featured in the Calvin Klein Men & Women Fall 2010 presentation. This week Michael appeared alongside Helle in an editorial for John Tan‘s Visual Tales quarterly. Michael was also photographed for a Dolce & Gabbana twentieth anniversary editorial styled by Karl Templer and shot by Robbie Fimmano that will be published in a forthcoming issue of Interview Magazine. And that’s just what we can tell you today.

This spring Michael has been living in Brooklyn with fellow Ford Men models Paolo Anchisi, Adrien Brunier, Ed Marquezini, Gil Schiavon, and Matt Schmitt, all of whom aren’t bad roommates to have as a new model. The full house has actually resigned Michael to sleeping on the couch, which hasn’t really bothered him all that much. With such a promising modeling debut behind him it won’t be long until Michael makes it off the couch and into a very large bed of his very own.
