Jimmy models for John Varvatos menswear campaign:

Jimmy Page has taken on the role of fashion male model to front US menswear designer John Varvatos spring and summer campaign. He can be seen pictured with 28-year-old emerging Texan guitar talent Gary Clark Jr. in a series of portraits entitled ‘The Master & The Young Guitar Slinger’. A short black and white promo video shot at South London’s historic Rivoli Ballroom  by acclaimed photographer/documentary filmmaker Danny Clinch, captures Gene Clark Jr. playing guitar and singing at the ballroom interspersed with shots of Jimmy walking the South London streets and arriving at the venue in a London black cab.

In an interview with Brad Tolanski featured in Brad’s Light & Shade Conversations with Jimmy Page book John Varvatos commented:

Some musicians have a personal sense of style but there aren’t many. Most never really understand. Jimmy was about the whole look, right down to what scarf would look good. He knew how to look good close up and from far way. Jimmy still looks great. Letting his hair go white was a perfect example of doing the right thing. He looks in command. There’s an aura about him – there’s always been an aura…John Varvatos

Jimmy Page….still the coolest rock star on the planet….

    Oh Jimmy!

    You know we love you but when you say at the end of every year that you want to be making music and getting out there, then end up in fashion commercials, you must realise we’re all a bit doubtful whether anything will ever come to fruition…

    Please – prove us wrong and show us that music’s still a priority!!!!

    Yours, in perpetual anticipation…

    Readers of TbL everywhere!

    “Master” and “Young Guitar Slinger” –What is this, Django Unchained?

    You know how this type of phraseology will make the politically-corrects among us absolutely apoplectic.

  • John C said:

    People have forged a career in music after listening to Treetop Flyer, I can’t wait for this collecton – and don’t get me started on Buffalo Springfield, majestic band.

  • Dave Lewis (author) said:

    John – yes same here – a much welcomed completion of the C S & N boys…

  • John P said:

    The Stills box will sit nicely on the shelf alongside the similar Crosby and Nash ones.

    Roll on March 26th!!
