New Face: Jasper At Elite

8 May 2013

Jasper Harvey at Elite Models is the cool new face this week, photographed in the studio by Cecilie Harris for Boys by Girls. Jasper was scouted by awesome fashion designer Katie Eary, and walked for her AW13 menswear collection at the London Men’s Collections earlier this year.

As a fun fact for you Jasper's scouting story includes having temporarily dyed his hair platinum blonde for a Halloween costume, and that's exactly what got him spotted and his modelling career started. The spontaneous image change alone says a lot about Jasper; he is clearly a boy who does what he likes and makes his own rules. He’s also a loveable character alright!

The quirkiness of his youth is something that immediately catches the eye, and something that Cecilie was also drawn to. His sense of humour and easy going personality instantly makes him delightful company. The photos of Jasper are gentle, soft and show subtle beauty and vulnerability - everything about his youth is held within the series of pictures. It's lovely to see a studio based series from Cecilie, and Jasper was the perfect boy to bring a unique edge to the images.

As well as his own clothes, he sports a “Broke But Happy” tee by new menswear designer Robin Tabari. We are very excited to see what the future has in store for Jasper.
