With his close cropped hair, more ink than News of the World, and fierce scowl, it’s plainly evident that David is another one of those boys we like to call ‘high fashion hooligans’. London born, but based in the heart of hip Berlin, this Sartre-loving Brit has just walked for Lanvin. Scouted when his friend, another model with Izaio, took him into the agency, just a week later David was signed with Bananas. Two hours after that and Paris was calling again – Dior Homme wanted to meet the kid with the Nietzsche tattoo pronto. On the plane to France the next day, it’s been non-stop for David since, with all the A-list avant guardians showing interest, and plenty of super editorial options. And while David’s appeal probably doesn’t make much sense to fans of the classic male model aesthetic, his anti-Adonis look is precisely why he’s so intriguing.

    News of the World, has no ink at all, having been closed down permanently last year following a phone hacking scandal and destroying Murdoch’s BskyB takeover bid for good.

    I completely refuse to make a comment to a “hooligan-look-a-like” guy who you could find easily in a Manchester United soccer game…

    wait a second, I just did!

    Well, that proves my point.

    Wow, I love him, and his tattoos are so gorgeous. Beautiful british boy.

    He’s probably a very asked catwalk model. I also only see him on catwalks or maybe also as a kind of catalog model in online shops.

    His head is always angled downward (even on the runway!) except when his back is to the camera. Very one-note.

    Let’s hope some of these editorials he has coming out helps him to emote and learn his angles! Good luck to him!

    It’s a big joke isn’t it ? This guy’s a really slappable face !!
    He owes everything to his tattoos.
    Now it’s like this in the fashion industry, if you have tattoos you can be model… Stupid !
