Valentino’s menswear ads for Fall 2012 feature model Benjamin Eidem in black and white shots by David Sims. The model looks so painfully cute that it makes me wish every guy I meet would be wearing Valentino at all times; or at least that they would be wearing Eidem’s sweet, innocent, inquisitive expression.
Fashion Spot forums members expressed their universal love for the campaign. “Before clicking I was whispering ‘it better be good, it better be good’ and I'm not disappointed,” Thefrenchy admitted. “I love how clean it is and how well you can see the structure of the outfit; and I can't help but love Benjamin.”
HeatherAnne commented, “Benjamin was the absolute perfect choice, and the styling and photography are both impeccable. I hope the women's campaign is equally impressive.”
GERGIN wrote, “Stunning, [I] love how they decided to do a full body portrait and face portrait. The beautiful coats from F/W will be well displayed in the campaign no doubt!”
Needless to say, we’re excited to see more of what this Fall 2012 Valentino menswear campaign will bring. Going on forum member reactions alone, it seems safe to say that Benjamin Eidem is a good match for the brand.
