Serge Meets : Christopher Millington

/ 1

Describe yourself in three words?

Forever an amateur

How about your style in 3 words?

Very little colour

When did you first know you wanted to be a model?

I didn’t, I guess. I got told to try it out and I was quite hesitant at that stage, this was 2 years ago. It never really occurred to me that I’d be able to model in any capacity. I got scouted in London through a shop window and it’s been non-stop ever since, I’m extremely lucky!

Have you got any big projects coming up?

I’m just about to work at the GQ Man Of The Year awards for Hugo Boss, in Hollywood. (That’s pretty cool)
Aside from that, I’ve got some big things coming with DIESEL, Whistles, Jigsaw, Topman and REISS, over the next few months. It still blows my mind that brands with such prestige; appreciate my work and want to collaborate on content with me.

What would be your advise to an aspiring model?

Go speak to an agency, that’s the first thing you should do. They’ll set your expectations and be realistic with you about your prospects. If you’re lucky, they’ll take you!

What do you think will be happening with you in the next 5 years?

Honestly, I have no idea. I’ve been really enjoying my transition from modelling into menswear blogging, it’s something I’m really passionate about and I’m loving every minute of it. Aside from that, I’m a director in LA supply brand Saint Rita Parlor, so I’ll be doing things with those guys for a long time. Who knows! It’s all a big whirlwind but I think I’ve got it under control, I think.

What song would be the soundtrack to your life?

Great question! I’d probably say a mixture between all of the movie soundtracks that Hans Zimmer has ever produced. I absolutely adore all of his work and he’s forever going to be my favourite musical influence.

Who inspires you?

My Grandfather, he was just the perfect role model for me, he taught me everything about life that I carry with me today. I owe the world to that man.

Who are your style icons?

Johan Lindeberg, Dylan Rieder. Both effortlessly brilliant. Distressing, relaxed cuts, worn-out pieces and bold outfits. They always look great.

What is your favourite Serge DeNimes item?

I really love the block tee, it’s definitely my favourite!

Favourite spot in London?

I love the south bank, it’s super cool and a skateboarder’s paradise. Aside from that, I’m a big fan of the Queen of Hoxton, what a cute little pub that is.

Favourite spot in London?

I’d absolutely love to walk for Burberry, there’s something so prestigious and unattainable about their shows, especially as a bearded and tattooed model, I could never see myself doing it.
To shoot, I’d love to work for Prada, their campaigns are always beautiful and I’m a huge fan of their imagery.
