New Face: Sam At Premier

10 October 2013

It is our absolute pleasure to present this beautifully diverse image series by the über-talented Paola Vivas. She depicts Sam Mellen, a new face at Premier Model Management, in a relaxed domestic environment, which effortlessly emphasises his gracefully youthful look. This artistically spirited collection showcases Sam in a variety of contrasting yet complementing lights, as he exhibits an array of stunning expressions, giving a new feel to each photograph.

Dressing him in a variety of truly unique pieces, Sam wears styles from a mix of some of the coolest brands, including Sorapol, American Apparel and COS, to name a few. The selection of quirky pieces add interesting edge and details such as mirrored crosses and contrasting collars inspire a discreetly kooky quality to the fashion aspect of the shoot.

Sam and Paola play around with a selection of props including mirrors, furniture and a potted plant, which softens the feel of the photographs and ties in well with the homely theme that transpires throughout. Whilst we could go on for pages and pages about Sam’s angelic look and beautiful cherub-like features, we think it’s best that the images do all the talking for now.
