Another Man X Premier Men AW18
4th January 2018
Ahead of London Fashion Week Men’s, legendary casting agent Paul Rowland photographs five of our up and coming new faces to watch, showcased exclusively on AnotherMan.com.
Paul Rowland has made a considerable impact on the world of modelling. A former model himself, he represented Kate Moss in her teens and founded super-agency Women in 1988 before going on to start Supreme in 2000, which had a more “intellectual” idea of beauty at its heart. Off the back of his collaboration with Ellie Grace Cumming for the A/W17 issue of Another Man, here, Rowland presents five of Premier Model Management’s new faces – all of whom are set to hit the runway at London Fashion Week Men’s, which commences on Saturday.
Reimagined here as a gang of New Romantics, this group is just a portion of Premier’s A/W18 show pack, who represent a range of cultures and ethnicities. Alan – who is brimming with confidence, according to Rowland – hails from the Dominican Republic, while Finlay – who has more of a romantic vibe – comes from somewhere a little closer to home: York. Keep reading on to see photos of the boys, alongside quotes from Rowland about what makes each of them so special.
Alan, 20, Dominican Republic
Paul Rowland: “He was giving me very 60s, Black Panther, revolution vibes. He really has this strong personality and is super confident for such a young kid. He’s beautiful but his confidence was the thing that was so magnetic.”
Finlay, 19, York
“He’s the cross between a rock star and a guy you’d find in a romantic novel. He’s super English and charming, so charming. He’s very sexy and sensual but also super angelic, so there were a lot of dichotomies happening with that kid.”
Keenan, 18, Southend-on-Sea
“In person he’s like a young Nick Kamen. When you meet him he really has that vibe. Culturally he’s such a mix. He had so much flare that kid. He was the shit. Very cool and quite gorgeous.”
Louis, 18, Buckinghamshire
“He’s beautiful but really young. I don’t think he’d taken photos before. He is stunning though, beautiful.”
Sonny, 18, London
“He is very Oscar Wilde. From that era. Super genderfluid, incredibly sweet but stunning. He was really beautiful and I think you could do a lot with him.”
