Into The Woods

Tyson Ballou has always had a slow-burning quality. After relocating to New York from Texas as a teen and striking out at fashion week, the model landed a Gucci exclusive and caught fire in a Jil Sander ad by Mario Sorrenti—his first major photo shoot. Soon, he was fueling big campaigns from Hugo Boss to Emporio Armani. Two decades later, Ballou is still kindling that fire—as seen in this elemental sportswear survey.
