We’re shooting some new men’s looks today including clothes from Superdry, Gypse 05, John Varvatos, Takel, Rxmance. As apart of the shoot, we have a new men’s web model, Michael, and a new photographer, Christian.
Look for the new additions to the site, which will be up by then end of next week.
Christian answered some questions we had for him first:
Q: What’s your history as a photographer?
A: I shoot musicians, actors, and fashion. Came form New York, I have been in LA for three years. When I first got here I shot for wire image and also while out here I have been doing a lot of personal work. When I went from film to digital, about six years ago, I took about a 4 year hiatus to get used to the idea of digital.
Q: What your favorite item in store?
A. I like the shoes, which is surprising since I’m not a shoe guy. I am however trying to get more into shoes. I’m pretty hard on clothes. If you buy me a shirt later that afternoon I may be gardening in it. Actually, the shirt I’m wearing today I caught on fire the first time I wore it while camping.
Q: How do you describe your personal style? Does it differ when you’re working?
A: I go from ghetto urban cowboy, to eurotrash, to pajama party. When I’m working I try to wear something as comfortable as possible. I also like to work barefoot.
Next Michael answered some questions:
Q: What’s your personal style?
A: Pretty urban, but also really basic, I’m a Levi’s and white v-neck kinda guy.
Q: What’s your favorite item in store?
A: I will probably be purchasing the Block headwear Raffia fedora at the end of the day.
(Which for the record, he is modeling above. This awesome hat retails for $46.)
Q: What’s your take on accessories?
A: I like a lot of them, I have a lot of bracelets on and always a necklace. My necklace of choice right now is a bullet that says ‘Cardboard Robot’
Q: How long have you been modeling? And what’s the biggest gig you’ve had?
A: I’ve been modeling a little over a year. The biggest gig was Macy’s- I modeled Ray Bans for them, which actually was their last campaign out of Seattle.
