interview with Jed Texas @jedtexas by @patinyaboonto

Carbon Copy by Ian Cole

After having been modelling for only one year, British up-and-comer model, Jed Texas has visibly made a name for himself. He has captured the hearts of prestige designers and fashion editors with his chiseled features and a striking resemblance to young Marlon Brando coupled with cheeky and sparkling personality. Since the bright beginning, Jed has appeared in numerous editorials including Love Magazine lensed by the A-list photographer, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Rollacoaster, Hero Magazine, Attitude, 7TH Man Magazine, Another Man, Wonderland, Fiasco Magazine, Essential Homme and many more to add to his mounting portfolio. He’s also landed his first cover with A Perfect Guide. His promising career doesn’t stop there he’s starred in Vivienne Westwood Underwear campaign and Aqua A/W 2012 campaign. Besides the impressive editorial and campaign records, Jed has stomped the runways of London Fashion Week including TKZ, Tween, Christopher Shannon and A Child Of The Jago.

Recently,Carbon Copy has listed him as 100 Faces of 2011. It is obvious that this rising star has quite the career ahead of him and is getting ready to lead the pack and dominate the fashion world.

Patinya: Could you please tell us a little bit about yourself?

Jed: My name is Jed Texas. And no I’m not from Texas, America. I’m from LANDAN!! Born and raised in Islington, North London where my family roots go back many generations. I got two little sisters, both of them are dancers. I was a bit naughty boy growing up but now everyone is proud of what I’m doing. Just being my cheeky self on a daily basis haha.

 

Patinya: How did you start modelling? And what’s your first modelling job?

Jed: I was scouted in Hampstead by Ian Cole, a fashion photographer while out with friends drinking. He persuaded me I should do modelling and I grabbed the chance! Then my first job was an editorial for Attitude so all my family and friends went and bought it and just found out that it was no.1 gay magazine ha! Boy!! I got the piss taken out of me and still to this day! But I love it!! Hahaha

Fiasco Magazine by Lorenzo Marcucci

Patinya: Has your view on fashion industry changed since you’ve become a model?

Jed: I never really had a view on the fashion industry before! It never appealed to me! Fashion was just something I wore! But now I see it as a crazy industry full of cool people making mad things happen and has opened my eyes up also to a lot of designers I would never had known about.

 

Patinya: What are your thoughts on a stereotype of a ‘male model’ that they’re dumb?

Jed: To be honest I don’t think models are dumb! Yeah there’s a few (like myself) but models are scouted all over the place and come from many different backgrounds so who’s to tell if they’re dumb?! Most guys I know are actually clever business-minded young talented people!

A Perfect Guide by Tom Weller

Patinya: What’s the craziest shoot you’ve ever done so far?

Jed: The craziest job for me has got to be a 2-day shoot for Love magazine by Mert & Marcus! Not only was it the craziest but also the best! I was working with supermodels such as Lara Stone (face of CK) Maricarla Boscono (face of Givenchy) Saskia de Brauw (face of Versace) and there to name a few! But what the work involved was what made it crazy for me! Had to stare at these girls naked for a whole 2 days! Not only did I have a good day I had the best 2 days of my life!

Love Magazine by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott

Re-bel by Ben Weller

Patinya: What is your favourite thing in fashion week?

Jed: I love fashion weeks especially London! You get to meet some great people and there are loads of parties to attend!! But my favourite thing is the buzz on the runway! It’s the best feeling! And to come off and go out partying with the people of fashion is just cool as well!!

 

Patinya: How do you balance your personal life and modelling career?

Jed: I don’t balance it at all!! Modelling has become my life! And also taken over my personal life too!! Everything I do now Work,Travelling,Partying,Chilling, is  normally related to modelling someway! Whether it is chilling with models, going to a fashion party or working for days in a studio, it’s all FASHION!!

Patinya: What would you be, if you weren’t a model?

Jed: Who knows??? I didn’t have a job before so I haven’t got a clue. But let’s say some sort of kingpin or property developer! Just because it sounds good! Hahaha

 

Patinya: What’s your personal style?

Jed: I would say my personal style is cool streets of London. Trendy and versatile! Well I’d like to think what I wear is cool though! Actually, I wear what I like and what I want!!

Patinya: Any bad habits? And what’s your current addiction?

Jed: Yep! I have a terrible habit of not starting a conversation with beautiful girls!! Normally over confident but sometimes just don’t know where to start! So girls  if I don’t say anything please say hello! And my current addiction is Twitter!!! Just got on the twitter hype and getting hooked like I did not long ago on Facebook! I can officially say I’m now a social networker! Find out more @jedtexas Ha!!

 

Patinya: Where’s your dream place to live?

Jed: I always said Maldives but that’s if I was old! At this time of age I have to say New York City! It’s the place to be!! There’s so much life there and too cool for school and if you ever get bored just take a short trip down to Miami! Not a bad life is it?!

 

Rumours by Hayley Louisa Brown

Patinya: People would be surprised to know that you…

Jed: That Jed is my REAL NAME! (Unlike most models we know)!

 

Patinya: Which super power would you like to have and why?

Jed: If I had a superpower it would have to be able to go INVISIBLE! Haa the things I would do with that you wouldn’t believe! Not only would I be a billionaire with all the banks I would rob but the fun and madness of scaring people out there would be jokes!

Rollacoaster by Toby Knott

Patinya: What are you goals as a model? How do you see yourself progress in this career?

Jed: I want to do everything!! I don’t really set myself any goals but I know what I want and I work as hard as I can to get it! At first I wanted to get recognised and onto models.com now I’m there so I want to work up to the top 50 and one day maybe no.1 haha To progress in this career you’ve just got to be yourself! Be who you are, express your personality and show everyone what you can do and let the Fashion Industry decide!

Interview with Top Model: Jamie Wise @jamiejwise by @patinyaboonto

In an extremely competitive business of male modelling, flooded with attractive guys and fresh faces every day, you have to be able to stand out from the crowd to book jobs. Being a successful model requires more than just simply good looking but attitude and personality are the ultimate keys. Recently, three young British male models including Jamie Wise, Jed Texas and James Smith have caught my attention with their impressive editorial portfolios and their domination of the latest men’s show season.

In order to celebrate the British Invasion in the fashion realm, I created a project called “Triple J” (from their Initials) collaborating with Metorvelvet to explore these golden boys’ personal lives, career highlights and their thoughts about fashion industry through a “trilogy of interviews” which will be released monthly, kicking off with Jamie Wise then Jed Texas and James Smith.

New Faces Men S/S 2012, models.com by Saverio Cardia

Jamie Wise’s impeccable face with the well-defined jaw line, marvellously arched eyebrows, dreamy blue eyes, and alluring lips sets him apart from the rest and quickly brings him to the forefront of male fashion world. His classic English Gentleman look along with his charismatic charm swiftly enchants the fashion elite all over the world and has made him one of the most sought after new faces. With his short time modelling, he has landed his first campaign for Zara A/W 2011 and has graced the covers of 10 Men Magazine, Carbon Copy plus had an entire issue of L’ Officiel Hommes Germany with four different covers dedicated to him. His remarkable editorial records include GQ Style Germany, Dedicate Magazine, Hero Magazine, Citizen K, Idol, Velvet, and Wallpaper whilst making his debut at men’s fashion weeks Spring 2012 for Frankie Morello, Moschino, Daniele Alessandrini, Alexis Marbille, Mugler, Timo Weiland  and Loden Dager. Without a doubt, this young Brit’s career is in full bloom.

Super Six, models.com by Renie Saliba

With the popularity growing, Jamie hasn’t let the fashion industry gone to his head and is always true to himself. He still remain humble and tries to pursue his ultimate dream of becoming an actor/singer which I’m confident that he’ll be another example of successful model-turn-actor sooner or later.

In our interview below, our “It Boy” shares his views on the fashion industry and tells us about himself and his personal goal.

Patinya: Could you please tell us a little bit about yourself?

Jamie: I grew up in the small town of Whitley Bay, Newcastle Upon Tyne, England with my 4 brothers (of which I’m the 4th youngest), played Rugby from the age of 5 for 13-14 years. Decided I wanted to sing and act at the age of 13 and since then everything I’ve done has been to achieve that goal.

 

Patinya: How did you get discovered?

Jamie: I had just moved to London and was working 40 hours a week between merchandising and managing the cafe at Fulham Football Club when I got discovered, since then I’ve been out of England for 8.5 months of the year!

Digital Update from New York Model Management

Patinya: What’s your most marked characteristic?

Jamie: Physically people would probably say my eyes and my lips. But I’d like to say it’s probably my personality! I’m pretty much up for anything and I try really hard in anything I do.

 

Patinya: How did you get perfect pencil-thin eyebrows, do you tweeze or plug them?

Jamie: I never pluck my eyebrows and never will!!! I try to do as little pruning as possible aside from the particularly troublesome areas.

10 Men Magazine by Jason Kibbler

Carbon Copy by Ian Cole

Patinya: What’s your view on fashion industry today especially the male modelling?

Jamie: I find it pretty interesting. It was never something I thought I would ever be a part of, but there are some aspects I’ve really grown to love. I enjoy some photoshoots a lot as it appeals to my acting side, I love looking back at a picture and seeing that they caught a specific moment that we were trying to achieve, that’s what gives me some fulfillment. Sometimes it’s the most mind-numbing experience because it can be incredibly time-wasting, but I find ways to combat that by reading, playing music and watching films, so it’s not too bad anymore.

 

Patinya: What’s your most memorable modelling job?

Jamie: My most memorable job was when I shot L’Officiel Hommes Germany and Zara Campaign. I had to travel to 5 countries in 5 days. Started with 3 shoots in NYC, then flew to Copenhagen where I did another then jumped directly back on the plane to London where I shot 2 more, then I went over to Hamburg to shoot the rest and as soon as I finished those shoots I flew to Spain to do the fitting for Zara! Was Insane! And then directly after that I had my first season Milan/Paris fashion week! Needless to say I was pretty run down!

Zara Young A/W 2011 campaign by David Sims

 

Patinya: Do you prefer shooting in a studio or on location?

Jamie: It really depends. I love shooting on location, especially if the landscape is beautiful, but sometimes studio shoots can be really interesting to see what they do with the lighting. Just really depends on the clothes, photographer and the feeling of the shoot.

 

Patinya: Are you comfortable being naked in front of the camera?

Jamie: Yes I am. I thought I wouldn’t be comfortable, and before I get to a shoot I get a bit nervous not knowing how I’m going to react, but as soon as I start shooting I go to a different place so it’s not like I’m really there. Not that I’m schizo or anything, just my way of shooting!

Patinya: Any interesting backstage moments for your first show season?

Jamie: Haha yes, Frankie Morello was such fun with Leebo and Sebastian. We were pretty much encouraged to get really hyper and be stupid. It was great fun, don’t really need to describe it, you can watch the video!

 

 

Frankie Morrello Spring 2012, Milan Fashion Week

 

Patinya: Do you have to control your diets? What’s your work-out routine?

Jamie: Yes I do, although nature took its toll with me so I can’t eat anything with Gluten in it, which is a bit shite because I just end up eating fruit and salad most the time when I’m running between castings because anything else mucks me up! But I eat very healthily anyway. I eat pretty much what I want. My work out is incredibly minimal. I try and find ways to exercise in everyday life so it’s not such a chore!

 

Mugler Spring 2012, Paris Fashion Week

DKNY Spring 2012, New York Fashion Week

Patinya: How do you balance your personal life and modelling career?

Jamie: It’s impossible, especially considering I’ve travelled for the majority of the year. I told my family and friends that I wouldn’t know if I’m available until the last minute and they all know not to expect anything from me because it’s a bit difficult if I have an important job and I have to miss something. But I still have a strong social life when I’m in other countries with great people I’ve met, and I still manage to have close-people in my life.

 

Patinya: What would you be, if you weren’t a model?

Jamie: My ultimate goal is to be a Singer and an Actor, still is and always will be. I’ve trained hard in both aspects to get myself to a good standard, finished University, finished training and I never miss an opportunity to promote that.

 

Patinya: What’s your personal style?

Jamie: My personal style is anything that’s comfortable and I’ve owned for a long time! I don’t particularly seek out styles or brands or anything like that although I definitely have been influenced in my time as a model.

U Mag by Renie Saliba

Carbon Copy by Karl Simone

Patinya: People would be surprised to know that you…..

Jamie: I love to Act, Sing, Dance and Bake but I’m not gay? Hahahah

 

Patinya: Can you play any instruments? And what sort of music do you play and listen to?

Jamie: I play Guitar mainly and I play all sorts, I’m particularly interested in songs which you don’t hear often on acoustic Guitar like Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole etc, then i play the usuals like Coldplay, Radiohead and the Beatles. I play enough Piano to train my voice and sing my favourites from Les Miserable and Phantom of the Opera!

Citizen K by Harley Weir

L’ Officiel Hommes Germany by Sune Czajkowski

Patinya: If you could be an animal, what would you be? And why?

Jamie: A Killer Whale 100%. Those things are bad ass! The can swim really deep, they’re super-intelligent, super-beautiful, can survive freezing temperatures and their smile is pretty infectious!

Idol by Jeff Hahn

Patinya: If I give you 100 million dollars, how would you spend it?

Jamie: I’m not sure….. It’s a lot of money! I’d definitely invest it into something sustainable and that I could have some sort of effect of people with. I’d probably concentrate on somewhere close to home in Newcastle or London and it would definitely be performance based. I’m a great believer in the idea people don’t get an opportunity to sing and act as much as they should and I think it’s incredibly beneficial to people and society, so I would invest it in doing something along those lines!  I know that sounds like a Miss World pageant answer, but I would legitimately do that.

Velvet by Matthew Brookes

 

Patinya: How do you see yourself in 5 years from now? What’s your future plan?

Jamie: If all goes to plan I’ll be singing and acting in the public eye. After that maybe I’ll revisit university and write a book and have my own experimental performance group! Will have to wait and see!!

Interview with Top Model @SebastianSauve by @patinyaboonto

            Half American half German Sebastian Sauvé’s modelling career has rapidly climbed up since he started in late 2009. His unconventional beauty with the crystal blue eyes and massive lips joined with his upbeat personality has caught the eye of the influential figures in the fashion industry. Since his debut shoot for Attitude Magazine, he has become a highly in-demand model. Sebastian’s highlighted magazine covers include Fiasco Magazine, Schön Magazine GQ Style Russia, Tendencias, Carbon Copy, L’Officiel Hommes Germany. He has also shot several editorials for the major men’s fashion magazines such as, L’ Officiel Hommes, Vougue Homme Japan, GQ Style, Client Magazine and i-D Magazine. Furthermore, he’s recently appeared in campaigns for Frankie Morello SS11 & FW11, Stone Island SS11, and Zara Young SS11. 

          In the interview below, Sebastian shares with Patinya about his views on fashion business and a little bit about himself.

Fiasco Magazine by Anthony Meyer

Patinya:  How do you feel to become an in-demand model? And how do you balance your personal life and modelling career?

Sebastian:  I have to say that I feel pretty awesome. Who wouldn’t?  Important people that know what they’re doing want to take my picture, spend the time editing it and want to show it off to the world. That’s awesome!

My life and modelling are actually quite separate since I live outside of the city, nice quite town where people have no idea about the industry. So yeah they’re separate which I like.

 

Patinya: What do your family and friends react when they see you on magazines or adverts?

Sebastian: Everyone supports it, enjoys it and likes talking about it, especially my mum. My friends and girlfriend joke about it but that’s what I like. We grew up making fun of each other, I’m glad modelling didn’t stop that.

Frankie Morello FW 11 by Mariano Vivanco

Frankie Morello Sexywear FW 11 by Luca Finotti

Patinya: How can you describe yourself?

Sebastian: Stretched 10-year old.

 

Patinya: Do you consider yourself American or British now?

Sebastian: Always American! For sure. Damn straight!

 

Patinya: What’s your most memorable modelling job?

Sebastian: My most memorable job… Hard to say. Maybe my first editorial because I discovered my look. (sun in my eyes, little bit sad). My first ever show was CK, that was hectic so that was a milestone for me and very memorable. They’re all pretty unique to be honest, they’re all memorable.

Zara-Young SS11 by David Sims

Patinya: You’ve done some photo shoots with nudity, are you comfortable being naked in front of the camera? Would you do a full-frontal editorial?

Sebastian: It doesn’t really feel any different fully dressed or with my Wang out. The jobs still the same right? I’ve never done full frontal though I wouldn’t mind except that’s something that needs to be done in style and for something big the first time like with Steven Klein or for Mariano Vivanco’s book

 

Patinya: What’s the most difficult shoot you’ve ever done so far? Have you ever refused to do what the photographers ask?

Sebastian: Difficult would be shooting outside advertising summer clothes in the middle of a windy British winter. Thought I was going to get frost bite! My hands clamped shut for ages.

I’ve had to put a photographer in their place a couple times, nicely of course. Sometimes they try and get you naked, you’re not allowed so you say no. Sometimes they want you to do something really stupid but I know the pictures gonna look crap so I just explain to them why it’s a bad idea. Mostly it’s fine though. They know what they’re doing.

Schön Magazine  by Dimitris Thecharis

 

Clash Magazine  by Christian Oita

Patinya:  What’s your most marked characteristic?

Sebastian:  My left foot second little toe, it’s a toe to die for. lol I don’t know, I guess my lips because they look like they belong on a black guy.

 

Patinya: Have you ever been mocked for your massive lips? What’s your response?

Sebastian: Sure I’ve been mocked. But I enjoy being made fun of when the jokes are funny. In school my older brother was called DSL (Dick Sucking Lips lol) and I was mini DSL or kipper lips or fat head Seb. Loved it!! My response is a laugh then I’d think up a nickname for them

 


PF Magazine (Ukraine) by Saverio Cardia

Patinya: What are the best and worst comments you’ve ever heard from the clients?

Sebastian: The best: we love you because you’re the only one that looks like you. Everyone else looks like each other

 The worst… Nah it’s only good comments, lol. I’ve been told I was fat once, I couldn’t stop laughing at them. Lost that job lol.

Fiasco Magazine by Aline and Jacqueline Tappia

Patinya: What’s your opinion about fashion industry today? What’s the best part? And what’s the worst?

Sebastian: My opinion is they’re all crazy, the whole things are insane! But it’s so much fun and constantly changes. I can hardly keep up. The best part is the wow factor and the worst part is fashioning summer clothes in winter outside and winter clothes in summer in boiling hot rooms with no windows.

 

Patinya:  Do you think male models should be paid or treated equally to the female?

Sebastian:  No, female models deserve more for sure. It’s a tough world for them so they should be paid for the amount of shit they go through. I think us males as a whole could do with a bit more though to be honest.

L’officiel Hommes Germany FW2010 by Adreas Larsson

Fiasco Magazine by Anthony Meyer

Patinya: What’s your view on a stereotype of a ‘male model’ that they’re dumb?

Sebastian:  Depends I guess. Some of them are but not much more than any other “young adult” any male 16-24 should be considered dumb really. Male models could be considered smarter than average on account of all the cultural knowledge we gain visiting all these places around the world.

 

Patinya: You’re currently in a relationship, how do you guys deal with the long distance?

Sebastian: We deal with it well. We were already together 3 years before so had established a strong relationship before any of this happened. Trust and openness and joking are being a key always. And being extra close when we’re together.       I probably would have driven her crazy by now anyway if I was home all the time.

 

Fiasco Magazine April 2011 by Renie Saliba

 Carbon Copy by Joseph Sinclair

 Patinya: What’s your dream destination to take your girlfriend to?

Sebastian: My pants. lol Brazil I’d say. Somewhere awesome, fresh and exotic with monkeys!

 

Patinya:  What turns you on and what turns you off?

Sebastian: Eeew, I get mega turned on by old people having sex with aliens. lol. My girlfriend turns me on of course, that’s one of the main reasons I’m going out with her.

Turn off… Super skinny or super large. I like curves but don’t like mountains. Basically a healthy girl

 

Patinya: What do you wear in bed?  And what’s your underwear of choice?

Sebastian: Bed:  comfy clothes. Sweat shorts and a 5xl t-shirt

Underwear:  fruit of the loom boxers are literally the most comfortable.

Les Hommes SS11 lookbook by Jacqueline and Aline Tappia

TO2W by Duane Nasis

Patinya: Any bad habits? And what’s your guilty pleasure?

Sebastian: Damn there’re a lot of questions!?! lol Bad habits:  picking my nose, farting in department stores. Peeling scabs, eating everyone’s left over, you name it. These are also all guilty pleasures.

 

Patinya: People would be surprised to know that you….

Sebastian: Have 5 nipples randomly placed all over my body and a tail which is called a nuben. Lol not really, I’m pretty regular. Ooo, I can pick my nose with my tongue!!!

Schön Magazine by Dimitris Theocharis

 That Magazine by Jessie Craig

Patinya: If you’re in Jersey Shores, what should be you nickname?

Sebastian: Never watched it. How about “super turbo awesome mega cool Sebatron”?

 

Patinya: If you could be a super hero, who would you be? And why?

Sebastian: Well, Super Man because he’s the best in terms of invincibility but he’s a bit of a loser in real life really. I’d go someone cool like the flash or green lantern. I think I’d be venom actually, he’s Badass!

 

Patinya: What would you like to find in a FedEx parcel if you were stranded on a remote island?

 Sebastian: The Internet for entertainment reasons. Or maybe a comedian with a never ending supply of good jokes.

Twist Magazine by Lionel  Guyou  and Birgitte  Mahrt

Rollacoaster by Alastair Strong

Patinya: If you could be an animal, what would you be? And why?

Sebastian: A lynx because their badass. Live in trees and never fucked with. Chill all day everyone’s tour friend, go where you want eat what you want. Chillin!

 

Tendencias July/August by Marcelo Capizzano

Patinya: What’s the best thing you’ve ever bidden on eBay?

Sebastian: 100 sponge bob stickers for 35 pence.

 

Patinya: How do you see yourself in 5 years from now? What’s your future plan?

Sebastian: Rich and famous of course. Not really though a bit rich would be cool. I’m a business man though so there’s any o a 1000 possibilities. I’ll be running a few businesses on the side an maybe playing evil villains in some movies.

Out Magazine by Thomas Giddings

           Sebastian clearly doesn’t seem to take a bad photo. His impeccable features, boyish charms and fun attitude always please the elite clients and everyone involved. There’s no doubt  that he has got what it takes to become a new wave of male modelling industry  proved by getting booked back-to-back for editorials, campaigns and shows. With all the success and fame he still remains humble and fun to be around. It’s obvious that his modelling career is unstoppable so we can only expect great things from him in the future.

Patinya: To kick off the interview please tell us a little bit background of yourself

Marcel: My Parents were born in the Netherlands. My Father came from a Dutch background and my Mother with a mix of Indonesian and South American background. After Marriage they moved to the Canadian Province of Alberta. I was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1986. My younger Brother was born in 1988 and my parents decided to move to British Columbia, where I was raised to the age of 18. I studied at a High school in Coquitlam and after graduation applied and was accepted at the Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design in Vancouver.

 

Patinya: How did you get discovered?

Marcel: In 2007. I was arranged an appointment to visit DNA through the photographer Ryan McGinley.

Patinya: How do you balance your personal life and modelling career?

Marcel: There isn’t a real need to balance anything. Modelling is very easy career. My personal life consists of 80% of each year and only several weeks are devoted to shows or shoots.

 

Patinya: What do your family and friends think about you being a model?  Do they treat you differently?

Marcel: My Family is very happy I get to have an opportunity to travel & network. I’m not treated differently, they are happy I managed leaving my hometown for New York City and I believe my family & friends understand how this temporary career helps to me eventually achieve certain goals.

 

Patinya: What do you have to sacrifice to become a model?

Marcel: Not very much. Dating is the hardest. When you travel 1 to 3 months straight and occasionally on-call then having a girlfriend in New York City can be difficult. It’s even harder if they live in a different City than your home base. Not to mention if they are also a model who does the same.

Patinya: A stereotype of a ‘male model’ is that they’re dumb, what’s your view on this?

Marcel: Sometimes it’s true. It’s the worst stereotype. I can easily find myself avoiding the words “Male Model” when I am asked what I do.

 

Patinya: What do you think about fashion industry nowadays? What’s the best part? And the worst?

Marcel: I don’t really follow fashion so I don’t really have an opinion :)

 

Patinya:  What’s your opinion about designer’s obsession with skinny models?

Marcel: I understand why models are skinny and tall, most designers worry about sizes after the work they do in the drawing room. It’s easy for them to work on their art and design when they stick to the same measurements. Although discrimination towards people who are different proportions is not acceptable, I try not to let most of fashion industries requirements bother me. It’s like how in the past the rich were known to be very well fed and larger than what now seems to be an average weight and size. But I’m sure it was difficult then for weak, tall or skinny people during the middle ages.

I feel lucky my parents have passed on genes where I am the size I am but it’s just the way it is. I would be just the same if it were different only maybe not being interviewed by you haha.

Vogue Hommes Japan by Josh Olins

 

Patinya: Do you prefer runway or shoot?

Marcel: I would say runway because it’s very simple, although it can take a lot of downtime. The week of running around for castings before shows start become the difficult part of runway. Shoot can be fun on and off depending on how the photographer works. If they don’t know what they want it can take a long annoying time.

 

Patinya: What’s your most memorable modelling job?

Marcel: Going to Tokyo for a 2-month contract.

Pen Magazine by Kiyotaka Hatanaka 

Patinya: What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever done on set?

Marcel: I’ve jumped onto a wild horse while completely naked and rode it for a couple seconds before falling off.

 

Patinya: Are you comfortable being naked in front of the camera?

Marcel: Yep. (Prefer nude outdoors than in a studio)

 

Patinya:  Since you’re in a competitive industry, how do you handle rejection? What’s the worst comment you’ve ever had from the clients?

Marcel: It isn’t my goal to succeed as a model. I do this for financial gain but not for personal enjoyment. Being rejected by Gucci vs. Prada has no difference and almost no impact on me. Especially since jobs come and go every day.Clients don’t ever comment badly and if they had I can’t remember it happening.

Patinya: Has anyone asked you to cut your hair? Would you do it?

Marcel: Not at all. Yes I would.

 

Patinya: What’s your definition of beauty?

Marcel:  I can find a dirty, hot summer day in Brooklyn a beautiful sight. But also appreciate being in the woods on a rainy day in British Columbia. If it seems real it is beautiful. Although I’ve been in a suburb that seemed very unnatural and it also struck a chord. Life is beautiful and so is Death and all that come in between.

  

Slurp Magazine by Saverio Cardia

Patinya: What’s your most marked characteristic?

Marcel: I’m very easy going and kind, I don’t really have much to get angry about and even if I do I almost never let it out.

Patinya:  What is your personal style?

Marcel: Discrete.

Patinya:  How do you kill time during the shoots or the shows?

Marcel: Reading.

Patinya:  Please name things that you can’t miss when you’re travelling

Marcel:  There is not much I need to bring except essentials and my camera. I can always find an English book when I’m in a major city and film is still easy to find for my camera. When I am traveling I try to send a postcard, that’s very important to me.

 

FHM Collections Germany by Jonas Kesseler

Patinya: You’re currently in a relationship, how do you guys deal with the long distance while you have to travel a lot?

Marcel: With traveling the situation always seems to be worse for the person not traveling. But New York City is a fun city and we basically have to keep ourselves entertained by friends while one another are away.

Patinya: Any bad habits? And what’s your guilty pleasure?

Marcel: I’m working on my bad habits such as smoking. My guilty pleasure is whiskey.

Huge Magazine by Kiyotaka Hatanaka

Patinya: What would you be, if you weren’t a model?

Marcel: A student.

Patinya: People would be surprised to know that you……..?

Marcel: I have to wear prescription glasses :)

Patinya:  why did you deactivate your twitter account?

Marcel: There was nothing much to say and I would like to spend less time looking at screens.

Lithium M by Gil Inoue

Patinya: If you could be an animal, what would you be? And why?

Marcel: A Fox because I adore wolves but they are too tough and I’m more of a sneaky creature anyway.

Patinya: What would you like to find in a FedEx parcel if you got castaway?

Marcel: If I was stranded on an island the best thing to find in a FedEx parcel would be a towel haha.

Patinya: Please describe yourself in three words?

Marcel: Emotional, Passionate & Patient

Patinya:  What is a successful life? What makes you happy?

Marcel:  A successful Life is one where you are happy. You can set goals but always whatever the outcome you are satisfied. Always know where you want to live and who you want to be around. And adjustment is very important, if financially I cannot continue my life style I have now I will adjust to whatever I will be doing or wherever I am.

Patinya:  How do you see yourself in 5 years from now? What’s your future plan?

Marcel: I will be living in either New York, Amsterdam, Berlin or Tokyo. I will either have gotten my masters or not but would ultimately have a career that has some kind of connection to visual Art.

                      Although Marcel’s career is inexorable and with all the attention he’s still very down to earth and can enjoy simple pleasure. He’s strongly passionate about visual arts and photography. In his leisure time he likes to experiment some art projects with his friends and lately his collection of photographs have been published and exhibited at some galleries. Apparently modelling is not his ultimate goal to achieve however we would expect to see him having a career related to that in the future.
