This photographic homage traces icon Gandy’s career from early photo shoots to the acclaimed advertising campaign for the Dolce&Gabbana, fragrance Light Blue, which captured the world’s imagination and transformed him into a global icon of virility, sex-appeal, and charm. The Light Blue campaign alone garnered over eleven million online hits, and his image has been featured in a fifty-foot poster towering over Times Square in New York.
David Gandy is both an icon and muse for Dolce&Gabbana, the Italian designers’ masculine ideal. Originally from suburban London and a self-professed car fanatic, he got into modeling by chance through a contest. Since then, he has taken the fashion world by storm, working with top photographers and stylists.
This book includes photographs by Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Giampaolo Segura, and Mariano Vivanco, among others.
For all the “aficionados” (and they are numerous) of the great model.
