David says relax

Model's short film is compulsive viewing

How do you unwind after a hectic day at work? Here at ELLE we like to listen to the dulcet tones of David Gandy.

‘People do different things for relaxation’, intones the brooding supermodel over the opening scenes of his stylish new film 'David Gandy: Escapism'.

Cut to David sliding into a bubble bath? Not quite. Tight camera shot of David hooking a “Do Not Disturb” sign on his hotel door knob as he slopes off with a mysterious women? Hmmm, not exactly. How about a suited and booted David climbing behind the wheel of an iconic Jaguar sports car in the middle of the night? Bingo.

You see, when David Gandy wants to relax, he likes to indulge his number one passion in life: driving.

This compulsive-viewing short film, created in collaboration with Jaguar, takes us on a road trip with David as he drives some of the most beautiful sports cars in history. As he fires up that engine and revs the accelerator, it’s hard not to fall in love – especially when he gets out on the open road and the wind artfully ruffles up his hair. Room for a passenger, David?
