Mariano Rivera’s second career as a high-class male fashion model is truly taking off. After donning Canali pinstripes for the spring, the Yanks’ closer and the Italian designer have teamed up for the fall. Rivera sat for a photo shoot in June and sytled a navy pinstripe two-button suit, a double-breasted cashmere coat and a gray cashmere-blend jacket, reports WWDMen’s. “I was thrilled to be asked again by Canali to be featured in the advertising campaign,” Rivera said. “I have been a fan of the brand for many years.”
A Canali spokesperson said that Rivera was “a pro in front of the camera.” Elisabetta Canali, the firm’s global communications director, said inviting Rivera back was “an easy decision for us to feature him again in this season’s advertising campaign.” Look out for the ads this month.
