Oh, but wait, there is a second cover for the April 2019 issue of Reflex Homme and it just so happens to feature Joaquín Ibarra photographed by Ariel Mendes. The cover has a distinctively Argentinian air about it. To start, there is Argentinian Joaquín wearing a look by Argentinian designers Martin Boerr and Agustin Yarde Buller for their label Boerr Yarde Buller. If that leaves readers lukewarm, then those horses grazing in the distance ought to quicken the pulse knowing to this day breeders in Argentina have protected for centuries the breeding of the criollo horse descended from the Andalusian and Arabian breeds brought to the New World by conquistadores in the 16th century. Don’t get too bogged down in the cultural and historical details of this cover and simply delight in the occasion for Joaquín.
