We caught up with Swedish new face, Patrik Jonasson (Elite, Sight, Modellink), who has graced the pages of Style, King mag, the Fashionisto, and more. He spoke to us about where he was discovered, his first big job, his guilty pleasure, and more …
AGE: I'm 29 years old.
HOMETOWN: Gothenburg, Sweden
I WAS DISCOVERED … at 3am in McDonalds after a night out with my friends. The guy was a photographer and wanted to take pictures with me the next day. At first I thought he was kidding. But then we met up and took some pictures and it turned out very well. Then one thing lead to another.
MY FAVORITE SHOW … It was for Lee jeans. I really love their clothes and the rest of the crew on that show was great. We had a blast.
PERSONAL STYLE: I love to mix between second hand/vintage clothes and fancy suits. You can easily be mistaken for a hobo with this beard if you don't dress up!
WHEN I'M NOT MODELING, I AM … addicted to sports. I love to play tennis or football with my friends when I have time.
FAVORITE BRAND: I must say ACF (Art Comes First). Love those guys. The best looking hats and great looking suits.
GUILTY PLEASURE: I love Swedish cinnamon buns a little too much! Can't have enough of those.
DO YOU THINK YOU'RE HOT? It doesn't sound very humble to say yes, but of course I do. I think you must in this business. You have to feel good about yourself.
