FROM PUNK TO ROCK THERE ARE MANY SOCIAL AND CULTURAL FACETS THAT LIE BEHIND THE EXPRESSION "COOL KID". BEING IRREVERENT, AGAINST THE RULES AND HAVING A SOMEWHAT DAMNED ASPECT ARE THE BASIC FEATURES.
From Paul Hameline, Vetements and Balenciaga’s icon, to the young upcoming William Allen, a cross beauty, with blond dreads and kind lineaments. William, in fact, has already walked the runway and posed, among others, also for brands such as Neil Barrett and Etudes. Again from the “team Vetements”, there is Lotta Volkova’s boyfriend, Adrian Hurtado, from Spain with long curly hair, a scruffy air and a transgressive attitude. Just a cool couple.
Different styles, opposite attitudes and unique features define the expression of “cool kids”. Jack Kilmer, a Californian young skater boy before than model (for brands such as Saint Laurent), is an actor, in fact we saw him playing in Gia Coppola’s Palo Alto starring with Emma Roberts.
Coco Capitan, is a young and talented photographer and artist with a unique and personal style. His “Coco Capitan writing” has also been the protagonist of the preparation of the Gucci’s show set design.
Ernest Kilmko instead is a new rising star who has already made go crazy a lot of brands for him and played in the Dior’s video campaign “Let us rave” directed by Nicolas Santos and Mauricio Nardi. His shaved hair and his sunken facial features and big eyes, give him a great screen presence.
Clara Desheyles, Demna Gvasalia’s and Jaquemus’s muse, is called “girl 3000” due to the fact she is extremely contemporary and modern. The son of American supermodel Stephanie Seymour instead is Harry Brant, a young model who posed for Givenchy along with Anna Cleveland. By bringing his extravagance, elegance and beauty with simplicity and freshness, Harry has soon become a style icon.
