New Face: Axel At Nevs Models

2 January 2013

We’ve been spoiling you recently at Boys by Girls and with all of our New Faces we have shown you and here is another! Meet our beautiful German boy… 21-year-old Axel at Nevs Models. He loves art, is studying Philosophy, Politics and Econimics and has been classically trained in dance (plus some “Gangsta” moves on the side), what more could you want?

We went down to Cecilie Harris’ underground car park for the shoot (her studio environment of the moment), as we do with many of our new boys. We all know that anyone who’s anyone has been photographed in said car park.

Axel is a classic beauty and one of those boys who is completely transformed when he has his hair slicked back. Add on top of that the styling of wonderful Kristine Kilty and he really did look great. We loved him in the red leather coat by Breaks London. He managed to look great and really suit both the casual and smart looks, including the red and white checked shirt by Paul Costelloe, which he looked very dapper in indeed!

See below for Cecilie’s full and exclusive portrait series of Axel for Boys by Girls, and do not fear, we will be posting our interview with the lovely boy very soon!
