Hip hop head Axel was discovered when he was performing with a dance crew in his island home of Martinique, French West Indies. Already a veteran of the latest mens shows in London, where he walked for Astrid Andersen as well as appeared in the Pringle of Scotland presentation, Axel has also shot for Schön! magazine. Like a cool breeze on a hot summer day, Axel’s look is both street and sophisticated. With more editorial due out any day now, it could be a while before Axel is back in his island paradise…

    For once, agencies are not afraid of the difference. An edgy handsome grungy black model. Maybe he needs more of a NY development. But great base. Congrats martinique

    Ppl gon talk as usual.I think he is stunning you can not deny that. People need to get over this whole look thing he is different why should he have to conform as another stereotypical black model without Xfactor. A black hipster lol. his features are striking anyway. Wanna see more

    Nothing special about him. He looks like the average African American on the streets. When will the industry get it that there are many different looking AA men and women. I’m sick of seeing them all look like David, Ger or Grace. It’s getting boring isn’t fashion suppose to be innovating.

  12. Sam says:

    Not my type, but I can see a bit of potential. Nice height, nice cheekbones but not loving the nose, especially with the ring.

    I’m black and I’m very different looking. Can I be a model please??! I know this industry ISN’T racist, not by choice, but by marketing benefit. I always see the THUG black guys or raw Africans killing it. So why can’t I?
