The Calvin Universe

July 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The labels may be different, but there is a spirt that unites the many lines of the Calvin Klein empire. During campaign season the mega-brand always manages to create a stir and for fall they unveil five new campaigns, distinctive yet unmistakably Calvin. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) shoot Calvin Klein Jeans & Underwear enlisting Lara Stone and Matthew Terry to provide the prerequisite sex appeal. The #mycalvins hashtag is emblazoned across Mert & Marcus’ beautiful black and white portraits of the duo and is sure to resonate with the social media obsessed.

For Calvin Klein Collection and Platinum advertising David Sims shoots serene images of CK favorites Vanessa Axente and Clark Bockelman sporting the memorable F/W collections with stylish flair. The collection ads with their striking mountainside backdrop provide an especially beautiful showcase for Sims’ minimal style.

Last but certainly not least, familiar faces Edita Vilkeviciute and Tyson Ballou make a perfect couple in the pared down ads for White Label. Sporting coordinating tweeds and knits and looking cooler than thou in Daniel Jackson‘s shots the duo are ideal Calvin representatives conveying exactly the right amount of urban chic.

First Look: Details’ Supermodels

February 4th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The big March issues are making their way onto newsstands this week, and now Details has entered the fray with a guaranteed winner. Those who complain about the dearth of models on magazine covers will surely be cheered by the sight of not one, not two, not even three, but ten of today’s biggest superstars shot by celebrity photographer Mark Seliger (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists). Casting director Edward Kim gathered Garrett Neff, Clement Chabernaud, Noah Mills, Tyson Ballou, RJ Rogenski, Andres Velencoso Segura, Mathias Lauridsen, Arthur Kulkov, Simon Nessman, and Sean O’Pry for an iconic group shot that expands across a triple fold out. Dressed by Benjamin Sturgill, the ten are shown in some of spring’s sharpest pieces, and the accompanying feature within finds them surrounded by the buzzing lights of a classic New York night. Vanity Fair can have Julia Roberts and George Clooney; we’ll take these guys any day. (Images exclusively for models.com courtesy of Details, for video and more, go to Details.com)

Model Details

August 9th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

The September issues keep on coming, and the latest to join the ever-swelling ranks is Details Magazinethe men’s magazine that is making a splash by featuring a pair of supermodels on its cover rather than the usual Hollywood actor. Tyson Ballou and Emily DiDonato put a gorgeous face on the annual Fashion Issue, which is packed with a wealth of options for the cooler months. Ballou’s and Didonato’s sharp basics help liven up a clean, uncluttered cover story by John Balsom, while Shaun De Wet shows off the season’s sleekest suits on the city streets, photographed from above by Robbie Fimmano. Meanwhile, former pro soccer player John Halls (also shot by Balsom) wraps up in some comfy dress coats, perfect for an autumn evening, and Eric Ramos and Nadav Heyman demonstrate the brighter side of Fall, with strong looks in bright hues shot against a surreal Escher-scape by Lacey. It may be hot now, but Details reminds us that the chill is just around the corner—and that there’s more than a few things worth looking forwards to. Text: Jonathan Shia

Back to Basics

February 14th, 2012 |Posted by Betty

The latest L’Officiel Hommes Italia, the second under new EIC, Pablo Arroyo, brings models back to the cover and we’re not complaining, especially when it’s someone as iconic as male modeling mainstay Werner Schreyer (wearing Dior Homme) as photographed by Tomo Brejc and styled by fashion director of L’OHI, Emil Rebek. Actor Max Irons along with Tyson Ballou, Andre Feulner, David Kammenos and Bastiaan Van Gaalen round out the cast of the new issue, hitting the stands this week.

Behind the Campaign : Givenchy

July 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Campaign season is in full swing and while everyone loves the finished products – and the continuous stream of database updates on the subject, it is always nice to see the process that goes into each ad. We’d previously posted a glimpse at Givenchy‘s growling and howling F/W extravaganza, but take a look at the shoot itself. Veteran models Kristen McMenamy, Naomi Campbell and Mariacarla Boscono join relative newcomers Jonathan Marquez and Rob Evans in the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott helmed images and the making of images add another layer of enjoyment.

That Face

July 9th, 2010 |Posted by contributor

In the current Details, Tyson Ballou shows why he remains, more than a decade later, still one of the most requested faces of today. Photographer Anthony Maule and stylist Julie Ragolia kept the concept simple and true to highlight the latest in cold weather fashion, ranging from blazers/sweaters and ankle boots, to a cozy coat by Dior Homme. What pulled it all together? Edward Kim‘s casting of that near iconic face and body. Fall clothes (and Mr. Ballou himself) have never looked so good.
