Jordan Henrion has one of those faces I feel I've seen many times before. That may be because, as a blogger, he's worked on some of the coolest digital campaigns of the past few years. After creating spectacular imagery time and again the pressure was on for me to step it up in our GQ for GAP shoot and as the first Paris gent of the series, I wanted to nail it.
For Jordan, I wanted a location that wasn't typically Parisienne so we headed out to the North West of the city to shoot in the city's newest skate-park. It fit the relaxed LA aesthetic of M.Nii perfectly and we were even blessed with some California sun to boot.
Check out the full shoot and interview below, and his blog at Les-Freres-Ainsworth.net.

This collaboration between GQ and GAP is about finding new menswear talent in America. What does great American design mean to you? For me American Design means casual sportswear, a fashion that came from the streets. It's nothing compared to Italian or French fashion design. Something more urban.
Finally, leave us with some words of wisdom...No rules, no regrets, no return, no limits.
