Otis Carey’s come along way from packing boxes in the Insight warehouse (where he was first discovered by the company). This morning he was shot wearing a Tommy Hilfiger suit jacket, shirt and tie, as well as a Gucci outfit and a Dolce & Gabbana get-up. The shoot was for GQ Japan and Vogue Europe – two of the most high-end men’s fashion magazines in existence.
Otis scored the gig through a photographer buddy and, though he said he had an absolute ball, the jacket was a little restrictive and felt like an extra 50kg on his back. He still managed to nail the neat air-reverse you see here. Forget the easy Zoolander references, a foray into high-fashion at this level by a surfer is unprecedented.
