His name is practically a byword for Italian style - even though he's from Billericay. Male supermodel and GQ.com Car Correspondent David Gandy has been unveiled as the new face of Marks & Spencer's Collezione range for autumn/winter 2011. Shot on location in Lecce by photographer Uli Weber, the collection includes on-trend rollnecks as well as elegant suiting and sprezzatura-worthy separates, plus some great bags - we bought a reasonably priced tan leather holdall from the range a few years ago which is still going strong to this day. Let's face it, if anyone can inspire the average British man to inject a bit of continental flair into his wardrobe, it's Gandy.
