Supa Boys To Watch: AW15

3 January 2015

Ahead of the looming excitement of London Collections: Men AW15, we caught up with SUPA Models newest faces, to find out which elfin ears, fresh blue eyes or ruffled hair will be gracing the catwalk this season.

Photographed by Hayley Louisa Brown and Sam Copeland, the girls capture the boys in a no-fuss, raw and enigmatic style. As the day unfolds we begin to chat to each of the boys, learning cheeky anecdotes and quirky facts about their newest adventures into the world of modelling.

Vincent Pons styles the boys in an effortlessly classic vibe, seamlessly pulling together brands such as Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane, Nicole Farhi and Pringle of Scotland. Hayley and Sam capture the 11 boys monochromatically, letting the tones and framing speak volumes about our boys to watch, who are akin to loving football, music and have some (slightly funny) scouting stories too.

What was your favourite part of the SUPA shoot?
Favourite part was probably getting to meet all the models/photographers and trying on all the different clothes!
