Sang Woo Kim
Select Model Management (London)
Place of Origin:
Someone told me to go in [to Select]
Meeting people, throwing shapes, travelling, going to galleries, making my own work and of course my 80’s Burberry Bucket. I rep that bucket hard.
Favorite music, band:
Currently I’m listening to the album ‘Darkside – Psychic’ which is Nicolas Jaar’s partnership with guitarist Dave Harrington which is so sick. All time favourites consist of A$AP Mob, James Blake, Mount Kimbie, Bon Iver, Nicolas Jaar, Drake and Andre 3000, Outkast are the best.
Favorite movie, tv show:
Goodfellas, Enter the Void and any Wes Anderson film.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I’ve always loved PRADA’s men’s collections and currently I love the collections of Craig Green, such tidy garms. I use Mont Blanc Legend Intense as a fragrance. Calm.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I currently study Fine Art at Goldsmiths University so studying I guess.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
My Burberry bucket hat and Yung Lean.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
Working with Dolce & Gabbana for their catalogue was something I did not expect and was an incredible experience so early on in my career. Walking for Burberry Prorsum aw14 in my first season in London was mad.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
London is the best, that is all. The sickest vibe.
Which brand would you really love to model for?
PRADA and Kenzo
Place you would love to visit:
I love travelling so there are too many places to mention. Basically everywhere.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
My Burberry bucket hat.
