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.
