Henry Smith For Issue 6

16 May 2014

Henry Smith at Elite Models London and his adorable little brother George (Boss Model Management) were photographed by Cecilie Harris in this country-esque series for Issue 6 “The Truth About Boys”. Cecilie used a natural lit outdoors setting to catch Henry’s perfectly chiselled face in the crisp morning sun.

“Stories From The Countryside” beautifully captures the passions of Henry as the model and his passion for polo. To say Henry is a huge sports enthusiast would be an understatement to say the least, as he also has a keen interest in wakeboarding and skiing. For his issue 6 editorial, it is his polo passion and his country side home that bring a youthful energy to this classic series. Accompanied by his youngest brother George, this brought a new element to the story - showing the connecting between brothers, and how in our younger siblings sometimes we see ourself, and being a role model for them.

Stylist Chris Benns selected designers that flawlessly complimented the very British countryside theme of the shoot, using brands including Hardy Amies, Tommy Hilfiger, Hackett, Levi’s, Ralph Lauren, Kent and Curwen and Paul & Joe. Carl Stanley kept the grooming simple and slick using Paul Mitchell Luxury Haircare to channel Henry’s inner English gentleman.

This Issue 6 editorial makes us wish we lived in the countryside, watching the beautiful fields and horses run around. To see the editorial in full, click here to get your issue 6 copy "The Truth About Boys".
