There’s not much to say after the Le Baron editorial. You should understand why I’m posting this one. It’s art. The editorial only get’s pluses in my book for opening with one of the strongest minority male models right now. A name that has pretty much become synonymous with Calvin Klein, David Agbodji opens the artful editorial with what else except his sculpted figure? The styling of the editorial is significant in and of itself. Azadeh Zoraghi chose to style Bottega Venetta alongside brands like Wrangler. That’s tantamount to putting a Wal-Mart smiley face sticker in a an art exhibition with Renoir. Okay, maybe it’s not that drastic but you understand where I’m coming from right? Oh and if you look closely at the credits, you’ll find that this is We’Ar Different’s(WAD) “Man Issue.” I definitely can respect this interpretation.
