It’s important to tell people you love that you love them - you never know, they might need it that day. Even if someone seems okay, they could be really sad and they need to realise someone actually cares about them.” It’s really that simple.
Montell Martin


Agency: Select Model Management

Location: London

Montell Martin at Select Model Management may be on the perimeters of Generation Z - but he’s an old soul at heart. At 21-years old, in facing the unfamiliar waters of adulthood, it’s easy to discard the beauty of the past. With his postcode carved into the fibres of his mind, our fashion cover boy recalls memories that dance in dusty yellow-tones; he retraces the same streets his feet have come to know; “I went to the school at the top of my road, so I’m very much from Kensal Rise.”

Find Montell in our Autumn Winter '17 issue cover story, where Cecilie Harris photographs the glory of Montell’s sunlit afternoons at home. Sheltered in the cocoon of his mother’s laughter, Montell is stripped to his natural state of wide-eyed grins. In his interview, Montell discusses the central moments to life growing up in London; like the humming of laughter between friends wearing their school uniforms with pride and the conditions of naivety within a metropolitan buzz. As a true voice of his time, Montell speaks up for the misunderstood with optimism.
