The NYT visits the John Bartlett boutique: "It’s not as if this store is exclusively gay; it’s just secure in its sexuality. Contrary to current film and television, there is a large segment of confident gay men out there who aren’t that obsessed with fashion. They work hard, and just need some nice clothes for jobs and second dates."

Golden Retrievers Pant for Shiny Moncler Jackets


Cutest ad I've seen in a while, but probably the most expensive coat your dog would ever wear.

Moncleer2They're custom made for a Moncler campaign shot by Bruce Weber, which also features a self-portrait of Weber himself, along with his other fetish — a cadre of shirtless male models in a Sisyphean exercise.


The NYT's Cathy Horyn writes: "The shoot was done at Golden Beach, Florida, where Mr. Weber and his partner Nan Bush have a home. As charming as the self-portrait is, with Mr. Weber appearing to snooze amid the tools of his trade, I liked how he incorporated his sense of play into the images. He had Moncler down jackets made for his golden retrievers, and he had a giant ball made from a bunch of coats, which some guys are seen pushing up a gravel pile. At the same time, the absence of an overt fashion message is interesting, and, of course, effective."

Javier Bardem is Pretty in Pink for L'Uomo Vogue


Bruce Weber shoots Javier Bardem in and out of a pink bathrobe for the new issue of L'Uomo Vogue. The issue features a 100-page portfolio on Weber's vision of life in Miami.

Said Italian Vogue editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani to WWD: "L’Uomo Vogue is not exactly what you call a fashion magazine anymore. Basically, I am more free than anyone else because I don’t think that you sell clothes through a [fashion] credit. I think that you go through an image, that you sell a dream, and [then] the clothes. I think that Javier Bardem in a pink bathrobe is more a fashion statement than to have something with a big logo on his shoulder."

Garrett Neff has been chosen to show off new Calvin Klein's Body and Body Stretch underwear in magazines and on billboards this fall.

DNR reports: "Shot on location in Miami by renowned photographer Bruce Weber, who shot Calvin Klein Underwear’s first ad campaign 25 years ago, the sexy black-and-white images epitomize the very clean yet sensual aesthetic that Calvin Klein has become so well known for. Neff, who is the face of the company’s fragrance, Calvin Klein Man, was featured alongside Kate Bosworth in the spring ad campaign for Calvin Klein Jeans. He succeeds Academy Award–nominated actor Djimon Hounsou as Calvin Klein’s latest body."
