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, HermΓ¨s 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!

Aiden Andrews | T Magazine 12 Sep. 2010 by Damien Neva

The Monday [and likely also the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, etc — Editor] following Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week S/S 11 is all about finishing or even starting what was interrupted by that glorious stretch of eight days. The constant stream of shows numbering over 120 prevented the Ford Models Blog to mentioning even the most basic editorial that might otherwise be posted in between tweets on the Ford Models Twitter. But we digress… . Now for the story, Ford Men’s Aiden Andrews features in a T Magazine Men’s Fall Fashion 2010 story “Solid Citizens” photographed by KT Auleta and styled by Bifen Xu. Styled according to a limited color palette Aiden appears in olive shades by Diesel Black Gold and Land’s End, greys by Club Monaco, Tim Hamilton Redux, and Lacoste, and charcoals by Oliver Spencer and Banana Republic, the muted tones of which only serve to highlight the New Zealand born model’s signature high cheekbones.

Ford’s Charlene Almarvez also appears in this story. Please visit T Magazine online to see the story by KT Auleta featuring Aiden Andrews in full.

Antonella Graef | Elle Sep. 2010 by Damien Neva

Though it may have been waiting patiently on the desk of the Ford Models Blog for the better part of a week, it is all the same a story worth mentioning. We’re of course talking about Ford’s Antonella Graef featuring in the September 2010 issue of Elle in an editorial photographed by Terry Tsiolis and styled by Lester Garcia. The 5’11” (183 cm) Argentinian was last seen on the Ford Models Blog serving up milk and the odd bit of bling in a July 2010 Vogue Russia editorial photographed by Ben Weller. September’s story in the Hachette Filipacchi fashion flagship, however sees Antonella in the editorial immediately following with the cover story about Julia Roberts and her Eat, Prr–something or other movie. Modeling all manner of monochromatic looks (patterns are out in the new economy!) including the woolen ensemble by Marc Jacobs and faux-leather slingbacks by Stella McCartney Antonella effortlessly confirms the “cool intentions” of the feature’s title.
