We do enjoy presenting you with new boys, and 17-year-old Tom is one of our recent favourites. He appealed to us so much in front of the camera and considering how new to modelling he is, worked incredibly well with our photographer for the day, Cecilie Harris. Tom was the kind of model that we were intrigued to shoot, we can think of never ending possibilities to explore and would love to shoot with him again.
Stylist Kristine Kilty dressed Tom in some beautiful menswear including garments by designers such Christopher Shannon, Topman, Coeur and Tim Labenda, suiting him very well. We are especially in love with Cecilie’s shot of the nape of his neck highlighting the striking detailing on the back of the Coeur jacket collar. With the stark contrasts between the red and white clothes, especially the all the white look featuring a cool white collarless jacket by Bodybound, the portaits really bring out the innocence and purity in Tom. Not only did we get some great images of Tom, but he also left that day with a lovely, new, specialty Boys by Girls haircut. Yup, that’s right, do a shoot with us and leave with a whole new you!
On learning that Tom could play every necessary instrument for a band; it was only logical for us suggest that he form his own one-man band. On top of that he also reminds us a bit of a blonde Matthew Bell, which can only ever be a good thing in our minds. In fact, never mind the one-man act, we strongly suggest that these two lovely boys combine their musical skills and form the world’s most beautiful musical duo. When this inevitably happens, we fully expect a credit for our discovery!
