After a classy and nutritious drive-through lunch at KFC, we stopped by Kingsize Studios yesterday to visit Karen Inderbitzen Waller who was shooting the Crane Brothers Fall 2011 campaign with visiting Dutch male model Jordy (Clyne). According to Murray Crane, "I couldn’t miss the opportunity to use an international model of Jordy's calibre – he has walked and been shot for Prada and Lanvin and was perfect for the look we wanted to achieve with this collection." That look includes odd jackets, mismatched suit separates, lots of wool cashmere, suede elbow patches and an incredibly cool grey herringbone blazer. Jordy had a rapid rise to fame a number of years ago when he booked the Prada show as his first ever assignment. After a two year hiatus spent earning his masters degree, the travelling Dutchman is back on the modelling game, first stop New Zealand, next stop Paris Fashion Week in January. He told us that it's been such a long time since he modelled that he doesn't know whether or not he'll have any success – but hey, if it doesn't work out, he's always got that masters degree to fall back on.

My favourite piece in the collection, a grey herringbone blazer.
Best of luck to Jordy for the season ahead!
I LIKE YOU!
