From the book “UOMINI”, the upcoming and male model star, shot by Marian Vivanco, talks to Swide about himself.
We had already noticed Christopher Landon during the June 2010 Milan Menswear Fashion Week, and so we were not surprised to see him as the face and body shot by Mariano Vivanco for the book “UOMINI”. In this roughly 3’:00” video, you can get a peak at him on the Dolce&Gabbana SS 2011 Show at Metropol in Milan.
The book UOMINI by Mariano Vivanco is already available in all of the Dolce&Gabbana boutiques around the world. From February, it will be available also in the best bookstores and online.

How were those pictures for UOMINI shot with Mariano Vivanco?
They were shot at a beach in Sydney and then on a rooftop on Wall st. It was really great shooting with him, he is an amazing photographer to shoot with, and you can really see how passionate and inspired he is while working with him, so it was a huge privilege.
Swide’s team will be waiting for you during the next Milan’s Menswear Fashion Week in January 2011.
