New Face: Corentin At Bananas

26 February 2014

In this beautifully serene series, Jowana Lotfi captures Corentin Renault at Bananas Models. After bumping into Corentin backstage at Margaret Howell AW14, we were immediately mesmerised by his boyish charm and exquisite characteristics, and are even more pleased to feature this series by Jowana.

Jowana captures Corentin’s piercing blue eyes with soft coloured hues, whilst encapsulating his personality in quietly beautiful monochrome portraits. Stylist Marko Obradovic implements a classically modern twist with the styling. Although a fresh face, Corentin already boasts an impressive clientele, having previously walked for Christopher Shannon and Raf Simons, just to name a few.

With a vibrant and loveable nature, we soon learn that Corentin is more than just a pretty face; With a thirst for knowledge, he is currently studying business in Paris and aims to create a balance by delving into the culturally enriched world of Art History.
