Having been scouted in 2013 at the tender age of 14, British model Sam Harwood has gone on to become something of a ‘model of the moment’. From fashion week shows in Milan and Paris to campaigns in Tokyo, LA, London and New York, Sam’s is a star which seems determined to rise. Along the way, he has modelled for some seriously heavyweight names, perhaps most notably Balmain, Ferragamo and DSquared.
Sam’s achievements as a model, alongside his boyish good looks and easy charm, have also seen him become a successful Instagram influencer — with 30k followers to his name and counting. Here we fire a quick round of culture and style questions at him during a Clements and Church suit fitting to get a true sense of the man behind the handsome images…
