Mr. Porter delivers the finest menswear for the chic, artistic and affluent. No city epitomises this better than Paris, and no subject other than Pierre Sarkozy, laid-back and handsome jetsetter son of Nicolas Sarkozy, former president of France. We worked with photographer Laurence Ellis and Dan May, style director of Mr. Porter, in order to capture the effortless cool of Mr. Sarkozy as he posed in sunlit settings symbolic of his hometown, from the gorgeous streets of the centre of Paris to luminous interiors of a chic apartment. A very hip story for a feature written by the iconic Derek Blasberg himself.
