Can’t wait till the end of the month to find out what the 2011 Pirelli calendar will be offering your walls for all of next year? Then this sneak preview of what Karl Lagerfeld and the Pirelli creative team have put together may just wet your appetite.
Unsurprisingly, given it’s a Lagerfeld project, after the jump you’ll be reading about Baptiste Giabiconi and the likes of Natasha Poly, Magdalena Frackowiak, and Lara Stone.
The names attached may be unsurprising, but what may surprise is that the 2011’s calendar will, allegedly, break with tradition and make a male the focus of attention. Of course, where Lagerfeld is concerned, that male was only ever going to be ‘muse’ Baptiste Giabiconi.
Work in some Roman mythology and this is how the Pirelli calendar is shaping up:
The cast of supermodels and celebrities [the 2011 edition will feature Isabeli Fontana, Heidi Mount, Natasha Poly, Magdalena Frackowiak, Bianca Balti, Lara Stone and Julianne Moore] will surround the male French model Baptiste Giabiconi. The 21 year old will interpret Jove, the Roman king of the gods, as a sort of magnetic sun adored by brightening stars.
Giabiconi may not be the only male model to appear: a supporting god, in the guise of Bacchus, is also rumoured.
What the final interpretation of Jove, Bacchus and a bevvy of other mythological gods may look is still known only to those on Pirelli’s creative team. What we can be sure of, though, is plenty of chest and breast baring.
