Spaniard for the Spanish label! Who could front the new fall 2011 advertising campaign of the beloved Spanish retailer H.E. by Mango better than the dashing side of the Barcelona FC midfielder, Gerard Piqué? Indeed no one else, as the famous footballer manages to perfectly embody a certain naturalness and masculinity in this amazing campaign, which is already his second work for the brand, as he did the previous spring/summer 2011 campaign as well. Photographed in Paris by Francesco Carrozzini and styled by Rushska Bergnab, the new H.E. by Mango Fall 2011 Campaign features purity and simplicity, at the same time keeping the luxurious and refined character, peculiar to every single piece in the collection. Combining updated classics and casual wear pieces with urban touches, the new menswear line by Mango is the perfect choice for a fashionable man both for every day wear and for formal looks.
With hair done by Christoph Hasenbein and makeup by Karim Rahman, Gerard Piqué looks amazingly stylish, sexy and chic in all those pieces, whether it’s an elegant classic suit, a casual style jacket, pants or a knitted sweater. He manages to display the great professionalism and success he has in his football career in the fashion world as well. As Mango has stated, he perfectly embodies the type of man they wanted to see – young, dynamic, casual and with his own style.
“I’ve followed fashion since the time I was 15 or 16. I like it and I have confidence in my choices. But when I do a big campaign like this one, I let the experts take charge,” said the blue-eyed Spaniard, who is also the boyfriend of Colombian popstar Shakira.
The new H.E. by Mango fall 2011 ad campaign sees Gerard Piqué in a number of dapper looks, sporting cleanly cut flannel suits as well as casual trench coats and leather jackets. The tweed suit makes the cherry on top of the cake, looking so chic and edgy. The shearling jacket is also a huge trend for the new fall/winter season, while those monk-strap shoes make the returned must-have for an utterly voguish man! Go Mango style and be sure that your beloved will approve your high-end image, just like Shakira approves Gerard Piqué’s!
