 MODEL: REECE KING
                                                                                                                                                                     PHOTOGRAPHER: HANNAH MILES

How did you get into modelling? It all happened very quickly, I posted a picture on Instagram wearing a septum ring from LAMODA and they reposted the picture and it blew up like crazy, within 2 weeks after that moment my now mother agent (MUTHA) found me also on Instagram and then introduced me to my now agency Supa Models.

Was it always a career ambition? No I never thought of it as an ambition of mine. I saw it as an opportunity that came to me that would allow me to help me support myself and my family a lot more but not a long term career, but maybe who knows now.

What do you think you’d be doing if not modelling? Most likely I would still be doing visual merchandising as I was before.

Dream brand to collaborate with? On a level of making clothes together as a collaboration definitely Adidas, but just working together for modelling I have luckily already done that on more than one occasion.

Who’s your model idol? I don’t think I have a male model idol and I personally try not to idolise people and stay on my own individual path, but for sure my female model idol is Slick Woods, I think the industry needs more people like her.

What do you do when you’re not modelling? Usually I relax because this job does the opposite with non stop traveling, other than that I hang with friends, skateboard, read wisdom books you know just normal stuff.

Favourite piece of the AW16 collection? Loved the black fur fleece that I also wore on the shoot.

How did you get into modelling? Was it your first career plan? Modelling was never something I set out to do or believed I could ever do, my friend a few years back started making tshirts and I was with him the one day he asked me to pop one on so he could take a picture then just started using me more regularly then after starting to put the pictures on facebook I got scouted online and it kinda went from there.


What would you want to do if you weren’t modelling? I’ve always been into fashion and being creative so I think something to do with design would have been great even though the young boy in me still wants to be a fireman.

What is your dream brand to collaborate with? I think it’s either between All Saints and Vivienne Westwood


Is modelling a full time gig for you? / What do you do in your spare time? At the moment it isn’t, I’ve just recently got a job in a juice bar and In my spare time I like to draw and paint, Also love going to gigs

What is your favourite piece of the Autumn Winter collection? The No Noise Long Parka. A good parka is always a wardrobe necessity!

– How did you get into modelling? Was it your ambition from when you were little?

I was first scouted whilst I was at university but was too busy back then, so I went back after I’d graduated. When I was little I wanted to be a footballer by day and Spider-Man by night, but I was quixotic and immature. Now I just want to be a Hollywood superstar…

– What is your dream brand to collaborate with?

Calvin Klein, cool campaigns!

– What do you like to do in your spare time / You like to keep in shape, is it just the gym you do to keep in shape?

I like to watch movies, read books, attend anything to do with live music, chill with friends, nothing special. I try to eat healthy, go to the gym and do a lot of running, I’m going for that Forrest Gump body. 

– What projects have you got lined up for next year?

Next year I’m looking to do more travelling so we are working towards that at the moment. There’s so many great cities in this world that I want to live in.

– Tell us something you’ve never told anyone in an interview before!

Stephen is actually my middle name.

– What is your favourite piece of the Autumn Winter 2016 collection?

Either the tan strike 4 symbols t-shirt for the Basquiat crown or the blue distressed denim jacket.

You’ve gone from the army to marketing, now modelling, how did this happen?

Aha yeah it hasn’t been quite as linear as that and there has been other roles and education in between. My life has been like a rather boring version of Forest Gump so far :) Well the Army was always where I saw myself from a young age (too many Action Men as a kid) and I really enjoyed my time in training and everything that I learnt from that. Unfortunately, I picked up a knee injury that made completing phase 2 of training unattainable and I had to leave as a result. After going back into education I was lucky enough to be given opportunity to work for a small marketing agency, working alongside marketers gave me a lot of valuable experience and I used this to progress within the company and eventually took a more senior role with a new agency and moved to London.

After a year and a half of working in London I found myself approached by some modelling agencies and decided to give it a go. Select Models offered to represent me and a year later here I am :)

Do you have a designer/ brand that you aspire to working with?

There’s to many designers and brands that I’d love to work with and there’s been some that I have worked with already that I was chuffed to have a chance to. I’d have to go with All Saints or Calvin Klein as they are both brands that I wear a lot.

Modelling is a full on gig- how do you like to relax?

Luckily living in London there’s a lot on offer, I like staying active with things like Gym, Basketball, Running and Muay Thai. I’m a big music fan so whenever I can I like to go to concerts and music events, I love festival season. In the quieter months I have a secret hammock on our roof terrace for general listening to tunes, cloud watching and reading.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?

Well by this time Jennifer Aniston and I should be official and I’ll relocate to the Maldives to run my several successful businesses from the comfort of our Villa.

Do you have any exciting projects coming up?

I do yes! But waiting to hear confirmation on a few things so watch this space ;)

What is your favourite piece in our AW16 collection?

I’m definitely feeling your no noise navy long parka, that’s my kind of style for sure and it’s just started getting cold enough for it. Need’s to come out soon!

How and when were you discovered?

My friend was a model, and she recommended me to her agency.

What are you interests?

In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my friends, socialising, travelling around the world and being at one with nature. I am a very spiritual person, I enjoy the simple things in life and enjoy making others happy.

Do you have any special skills?

I am a very energetic person, and thoroughly enjoy sports. Such as Basketball, Volleyball and Yoga. Being a spiritual person, my talents are based around this. I believe in spiritual healing and practice reiki and massaging daily.

Which languages can you speak?
Portuguese(Native), English, and I can understand Spanish and a little bit of Italian.

What are your favourite things?

I have grown up listening to a variety of music. I especially enjoy listening to hip hop and house music. I love all types of food, especially Japanese and Pizza. Although I love these, Brazilian food is my favourite. I am obsessed with Jean Michel Basquiet’s work. He is an inspiration to me because he has opened doors for many diverse artists in the industry. I am passionate about making others happy, and I am always meeting new people who inspire my daily life. I have a positive outlook on life, and it’s thanks to modelling that I have been able to experience so many exciting things at such a young age.
