We've been fans of this Dutchman's sharp features since his first shows last year, when we tapped him as the season's face to watch and we're glad to see the rest of the industry agrees. His countless runway turns have translated into his first campaigns this spring, for Paul & Joe and Neil Barrett, and major editorials in the latest issues of Vogue Hommes International and VMAN.

A former banker, this Canadian has come a long way in just a year, starting from a Prada exclusive last summer and a Fall 2014 show season where he was nearly ubiquitous, walking for most of the top shows. His first campaigns this Fall, for Y-3 by Cedric Buchet and Ports 1961 by Craig McDean, demonstrate the versatility of his sharp features.

The British brand obviously liked what it saw, booking him for the Winter campaign by Alasdair McLellan. This year, he has already made his mark in Steven Meisel's striking ads for Lanvin.

It’s not much of a shock that modeling should come easily to this gentle-faced Brit, a fashion-design student at Central Saint Martins. A common sight on the runways since walking for Lanvin and Dries Van Noten in his first season back in January 2012, he has popped up in major editorials for i-D,10 Men, and Arena Homme+ since then, as well as David Sims’ vibrant campaign for Jil Sander this past Spring.

Loyalty can be a rare sight in fashion, so when a brand as major as Burberry keeps rebooking, others take notice. Scouted at a music festival, this young Londoner has lent his classically British features to back-to-back campaigns for the historic house, and a third runway appearance in a row this past June proves the relationship is still going strong.
