Annemarieke van Drimmelen for WSJ. Magazine | Styling by Giovanni Dario Laudicina
Layered knits and easygoing silhouettes heat up among desert sun rays and shadow play. For this spring men’s fashion story, photographer Annemarieke van Drimmelen and stylist Giovanni Dario Laudicina traveled to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where they shot models Cherokee Jack and Sam Mallos at El Rancho de las Golondrinas, or “the Ranch of the Swallows.”
“New Mexico is a very special place in my heart,” says van Drimmelen, who has regularly visited the southwestern state since her father moved there about 12 years ago. “The light is absolutely phenomenal—the way it reflects on the earth. It brings this amazing warmth,” she says, noting that these qualities once drew artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe to the area.
When Laudicina first planned the styling, he says that he had a minimalist look in mind, but his final looks were inspired by the location. Desert breezes prompted his use of fluid fabrics, including a silk pale blue Giorgio Armani shirt or light blankets from Ralph Lauren Home and Hermès, while the ranch’s warm colors inspired a palette of beige and orange. Structured elements like a Dior Men jacket, Canali shirt or Celine by Hedi Slimane jeans balance out long knits and flowing tunics. —Natalia Barr
