Serge Meets Oliver Florez
How long have you been modelling?
I started like 3 years ago, in Spain. A lot of things have happened since then!
How were you scouted?
I was working in my uncle’s hairdressing salon, where I met Fernando my headbooker from UNO. We were talking and he proposed me doing a test shoot. Fortunately things were good, and now I’m here in London.
We heard you were at university, what are you studying?
Yes, I study Communication. It’s not my passion but I think it could be useful in a future. When I was a child I dreamt about working for National Geographic or something similar so this could help me to work for them.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hard question haha, I dont know yet. You don’t know what will happen tomorrow. However I just want to travel as much as possible, so if I had to say something I would like to be far away, discovering new places and cultures.
What’s your favourite part of London?
Shoreditch. I live there and the neighbourhood is awesome , cool spots, bohemian areas with soul. Canary Wharf is cool, I discovered that place during a shoot. Also Tate Museum, of course.
What would be your dream brand to model for?
Yamamoto for sure. Nobody has known how to express and develop something so simple and at the same time so deep like black colour. He mixes street and elegance and his collaborations with Adidas are just incredible. He is the master. If I worked for him, it would be fantastic and unforgettable. I also like Marcelo Burlon , KTZ and OBEY.
When you are not modelling or studying, what do you do in your spare time?
Chilling with friends, drinkings beers, listening to music. I like to play sports such Basketball and Football, and a good book or film is always a great choice. And of course, clubbing.
Favourite piece from the A/W16 collection?
No Noise Denim Jacket is my favourite . Also any bomber is obligatory in my wardrobe. I like the design of the rings.
