Goodnight Gandy

David Gandy is my neighbour. I might have mentioned this before..but I seem him pretty regularly running around the park, sunning himself outside the local coffeee shop etc. Yes he does look like Zeus in the flesh. Whenever I see him, it brightens up my day so it was no surprise to hear that when Bionda Castana decided to make a – let’s be honest, really sexy – short fashion film feting the launch of its new shoe collection, design duo Natalia Barbieri and Jennifer Portman knew just the man they wanted for the job: David Gandy.

The result is David Gandy’s Goodnight: a smart three-minute short that was shot in Manhattan and executively produced by David Schwimmer’s production company, Dark Harbour.

‘I wanted to create something which explores the emotional relationship between women and their shoes and the effect that can have on them and also on the men around them,’ explains Barbieri.

‘When the conversation came up as to who the lead should be, all eyes were on David. There wasn’t another male we wanted to play the role.’

Here's why. Drool.
