An Afternoon With Haakon

7 January 2015

As this feature begins you are greeted by a boy, slightly hard on the exterior, his gaze discerning and powerful. But as you progress the softness and beauty of this boy takes over a little bit; you are let in more intimately and you come to notice the sculpted jawline, the feminine pout, the deep storytelling of his eyes. This is Haakon.

"We're all atoms, pieces of stardust."

Illustrated in a mixture of monochromatic and colour images, photographer Sophie Mayanne, creates a narrative around Haakon, light spilling through the panes of glass, moving from room to room, slowly revealing Haakon layer by layer.

Haakon (Elite Model Management and Heartbreak Management), really is the epitome of the contemporary young man. Stylist Dasha Kova tremendously captures this, styling him in the likes of Kit Neale, Majestic and CMMN SWDN, including some amazingly futuristic looking trainers by James Long X Kurt Geiger.
