Meet our models:

Posted by on

It’s hard to believe that we started our little vintage clothing business back in 2011 and have gradually over time organically moved to designing our own vintage inspired luggage, bags and accessories. As we approach the 10 year anniversary of Vintage Child we thought we’d have a look back over the best photo shoots we’ve done over the decade.

VINTAGE CHILD X SUGSEAN "DRAKE" LEATHER WEEKEND BAG WITH 2 END FLAP POCKETS

Sugsean is an influencer who’s been on our radar for many years, we’ve watched his following grow with admiration of his style and ethos towards fashion. When the opportunity came up to work with him back in June 2020 we jumped at the chance.

Sugsean was born in Anguilla and lives in London but we first met him in our home town of Tunbridge Wells where he spent some time growing up, he promotes ethical fashion and we’d describe his style and a classic English gentleman. We were so pleased with the images he turned out for us, perfectly styled in his beautiful London apartment.

We love working with models who have a personality that really fits with our brand, which is why we tend to go back to the same people time and again. James has modelled for Vintage Child for years, we are lucky that he’s local and we are able to shoot with him whenever we like, we often shoot with him in and around Kent and Sussex but decided it was time to travel a little further afield.

VINTAGE CHILD "EXPLORER" ECO FRIENDLY LEATHER WEEKEND BAG

We love all our photo shoots with James but the day we spent at Dungeness beach in July 2020 was a real highlight. Dungeness is a very unusual place with a rugged beach, rustic houses and plenty of beautiful old boats and beach huts dotted around. The beach is about an hour from us and the whole place fits so well with our style that it was only a matter of time before we used it for a shoot.

Josh is one of the newer models to the Vintage Child family and his friendly, chilled out attitude made him a joy to work with, we fell in love with his vibe instantly and keep asking him back. Josh is from London but his family lives close by in East Sussex so we often do our photo shoots with him around that area.

We usually ask our models to bring some of their own clothes to bring a sense of their own style to the shoot as we feel this really gets their personality across in the final images. One of the first things we noticed about Josh was how well put together he is and we are lucky that he has a very stylish wardrobe. We are always so happy with the images from shoots with Josh we keep asking him back for more!

VINTAGE CHILD "WATKINS" LEATHER TWIN HANDLE ZIP TOP WEEKEND BAG

Richard was one of the very first models we ever worked with right at the start of our journey and his outgoing and eccentric personality was something we would never forget, so of course we kept in touch and he is always super enthusiastic to come and work with us again. Richard is actually a brilliant chef from New Orleans and also does acting and modelling, so he’s a very interesting guy to have around.

VINTAGE CHILD "GLOBE TROTTER" LEATHER WEEKEND BAG

He now lives in London, so not too far away and easily accessible for the odd photo shoot. Richard has a great look, his unusual face and flowing locks are something we always love to shoot and we feel like his personality shines through in all his photos. The last shoot we did with Richard was in a place called Lake Wood in Uckfield. As the name suggests it’s a wooded area with a beautiful lake in the middle and we think the images came out perfectly.
