Before you start wondering where all the weird boys have gone, we bring you Kane. This NZ ex-pat (he’s been living in Australia since the age of 14) has an idiosyncratic look that is unique. Formerly an apprentice chef, Kane is very Brit pop, very editorial. We love the quirky beauty that resonates from his shots, and so on January 26th, the day that Australia celebrates its national day, we celebrate the arrival on Kane onto our Daily Duo!

    Hey guys, Im sorry I know you are not going to show my comment, coz negative comments you just dont let be here, BUT…. Im really not fan of this new wave how the guys looks.. this is small boy, not a MAN! well i dont need super muscular bodies, but this is too much, he looks like 12 and even his face is really not good, really not interesting.. i dont know, if its only me.. but this definitely NOT.

  • J

    Amazing potential

  • Aiste

    i like! he isn’t very handsome but he is very intresting :))good luck

  • kic

    i see him as a giraffe, plucking berries off trees….

  • Not on the guest list

    He look interesting, I think that people thinks that a male model is basically a greek god BUT modelling is not about “obvious beauty” that’s why boys and girls like Kate Moss, Cole Mohr, Freja Beha, Stella Tenant are or were succsessful, I totally see him in Burberry, Jil Sander or even Dior Homme. The only thing that bothers me is the forth picture because it looks like something that humans do in the bathroom Lol!

  • anonymous

    … some people are very delayed with the times and want 1990s “manly men” its changed get over it … this is what clients want and what majority of people enjoy to flip through the pages looking at… kanes good and he will do well and make money and im sure the last thing on his mind is you 32 year old blogger constantly checking the new models of the week to have your input on the models looking to “young” and make yourselves feel better.

  • guilherme

    i dont agree with barbora but i really dont like him either.

  • SAK

    Its good to have variety, he is not conventionally good-looking, but his quirky appeal is interesting, will do well,

  • Lily

    With make-up & retouching he’s quite presentable, a mix of Cole Mohr & Nina Porter. Without, however… His go-sees will be awkward.

  • Nic

    The only new wave I wanted to see so bad is small size (short) male models!

  • I like his editorials but he has an intersting look, not manly but then again you need someone who has a different look… looking forward to seeing more of him ^-^

  • Loolga

    Mhm…is he always that melancholic?
    I mean…some looks are really interesting(but thats probably more because of photographers` skills) but the boy seems a lill dull and boring. The face is interesting though.

  • ESkinny

    Love how sad look his eyes, can become one of the greatest!!!

  • Laura

    wow he will do well he looks very interesting

  • Young face!
    I like him!

  • meandme

    forget the “indivdual” comments lol. yeah he has a good look imo but he does look like too much of a child…not 1 I would be attracted to in that way! Hope to see him in a few years however!

  • queenie

    I like him a few of the shots – almost a (little) bit Ash Stymest in a couple, but the best shots are the ones that have been kind as far as lighting and make up is concerned (such as the ninth picture). The last polaroid at the very end is slightly worrying, but then I could imagine reading Arena Homme + and seeing that image and not bat an eyelid.

  • unusually attractive. Lovely lips and sad puppy eyes. Definitely not your typical model, which makes him ever better.

  • Sam

    he is not the most conventional looking male model but I see a lot of potential. I love the 3rd picture!

  • Clarence

    to me he looks very interesting, moreover i can already see him in shows like Burberry, Saint Laurent and many others..

    I don’t really know what to say to those who keep critising..

  • Laytowaste


  • RRRaul415

    Although he doesn’t look like her, I think of Erin O’Connor when I look at him. He would need some definite backing in the fashion world for a sustainable career just like EO.

  • I think he has an amazing face, and so much potential. A bit melancholic, but that can be worked on.

  • jessi

    very unique face!!! love his editorial!!! he reminds me of the movie The Reader…

  • Simbli

    Hey, I also love different looking models… but I think this guy is on the boarder….

  • Ash

    he looks similar to Thomas Penfound in his Polaroids without the bleach blonde hair! he definitely has a look

  • I had the pleasure if shooting Kane in some of these shots. You can’t get a more down to earth guy and he was a pleasure to work with!!

  • I think he really does have a lot of potential! By some of these pictures I was very impressed, as far as his expression went! On some photos he looks kind of nerdy and geeky and on others he is the coolest guy in school! Awesome! Truly great!

  • Zack

    I don’t know if I get it but it’s reassuring that if he can so can I.

  • Zack

    wait i wanna put my portfolio thing on here too:

  • Navaro

    Kane looks weiiird… Weird is cool!!!

    Oh and just a Q; can anyone name any plus size models, both female AND male? The only one that comes to mind is Crystal Renn, of course!

  • Bryan

    He’s definitely unique/different looking… he does only have the creepy-sleep look doesn’t he

  • Ediana

    MAYBE I’m crazy, but there’s this little boy at the ending of the movie Penelope with Christina Ricci, when her curse is cured and she becomes a teacher. She’s outside with her class telling them her story and a boy says “it’s not the curse, but the power you give the curse” or some shit. He looks JUST LIKE this little boy! Is it him? Maybe he grew?! The movie isn’t very recent either.

  • abbey


  • he look`s as young actor )

  • HH

    Peculiar but inspiring face!People can get something from his pictures.Depends on where he’s put I think!

  • his lips are beaky. but overall, he’s got a potential

  • ian


  • Andrew

    Wonderful features, he is really editorial. Very couture. People tend to think that the generic conventions of a fashion model is the same as commercial one. Commercial models tends to sell the product through ‘sex’ or how the consumers view beauty. Where as a fashion model sells the fashion as art rather than as a product.

  • Pet e

    Hi Kane I think you look stunning but then you always did :)

  • Tiffany

    He is pretty good looking!

  • Sabrina

    looks nice i like his hair :D

  • claude r. simard

    I like his « high school » shyness look. All models don’t have to be plastic. Too many of them are simply too beautiful to be true. Thanks, Claude

  • Marjolein

    i would love to see him smiling

  • sascha

    I LOVE his idiosyncratic and young look! I’m sure that many fashion companys are searching this look.

  • sascha

    Andrew I totally agree you. I think types like him are very important. Why do male models have to be very masculine and muscular, while many female models look like
    clothes rods and have no feminime body.

  • stripedman201

    I feel kinda late… But I wasn’t a big fan of the first photo. But in the photos of him in the white shirt, I thought he look pretty hot and manly. But I totally agree with the comment that people want male models to look like they did in the 90’s…. Which is completely irrelevant because we are clearly in 2 new freaking decades.

  • Mitchell

    I think that Kane is fucking rad! and he is sitting right next to me now. funny how people say negative shit… like so sorry i didn’t realize that you were all also models. bye bye from mitchell bridge and kane shearer :D

  • Rachael Mason

    Kane is an incredible young man, down to earth, and AMAZING. Unconventional Looks and great personality!
