為什麼你想要當一名模特兒呢?

在我12年的職業生涯中,我非常幸運並與很多厲害的品牌合作過,其中我很想和攝影師Boo George一起工作,因為我認為他的作品很棒。而在未來,我希望能夠成為對其他年輕有抱負的模特兒的導師。

哪一個品牌是你合作過覺得最愉快的呢?

我喜歡為Brunello cucinelli工作,因為我非常喜歡他們的品牌精神,他們以非常鼓舞人心的方式製作非常特別的衣服。而 Dolce&Gabbana 則是我合作的第一個品牌,我們對於對方都有極高的忠誠度。

你喜歡黑白攝影還是彩色攝影嗎?

我喜歡黑白的照片,因為它給人一種帶有神秘感的畫面的懷舊感。

在進行人像拍攝時,您是否有偏好角度?

我沒有偏好的角度,因為我覺得人像攝影是你和攝影師的互動。他會表達出不管鏡頭前或者鏡頭後的情感。

你真正喜歡什麼樣的風格?

我最喜歡的風格是高級時裝和英式風格的混合。

你認為西方時尚和亞洲時尚有什麼不同嗎?

我覺得西方時尚受傳統和商業的影響,而亞洲時尚則沉浸在文化中,充滿活力和展新時代的風格。我覺得在未來的十年內會有一個交叉點,而這對於時尚界來說是會產生巨大的創造性。

你在時尚界有遇過什麼挑戰嗎?你是怎麼克服的?

我覺得我模特兒生中涯的最大挑戰是在行業中保持 “存在感” 並且要持續的工作。我覺得克服這一點最好的方法就是享受你做的工作並做自己。

你的人生哲學是什麼?

有同理心的對待他人。

在經過這一次的訪問裡頭,我們更貼近了 Sam Webb 這一位英國超模,並且透過字裏行間知道他的成功關鍵並不是跟多少知名品牌合作,而是他謙卑且專業瞭解時尚的態度造就了他今天在時尚產業的一席之地。

Sam Webb, a British model; with a tall figure and perfectly body, he is a wanted model in this industry.

Since the VOGUE HOMME editorial, he has become the mega star in the fashion industry. Webb with a pair of brown eyes and a strong figure is a gentleman's model from any angle.

Webb’s popularity in the fashion industry is not limited to his hometown, United Kingdom, but also adored by the Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. He has appeared in the campaign of Dolce & Gabbana countless times, and in the spring and summer 2018 runway show. About his deeds can be said to mention til the end, but the exclusive interview is in TAIKER magazine.

What do you want to work as a model?

I have been very lucky and worked with a lot of great brands over my 12 year career. I would love to work with the photographer Boo George, I think his work is amazing. But in the future I would to become a mentor to young and aspiring models.

Which brand you've worked with that you really enjoy?

I love working for Brunello cucinelli. The brand ethos is incredible. They make very special clothes in hugely inspiring way.

Also Dolce & Gabbana as they were the first brand I worked with and have stayed hugely loyal to me.

Do you prefer monochrome or polychrome photography?

I love monochrome as it gives a nostalgic feel to the picture with a sense of mystery.

When you are doing portrait shooting, do you have a preference angle?

I don’t have a preferable side. I feel a portrait shot is an interaction with you and the photographer. It’s a shot that is an expression of both in-front and behind the camera.

What kind of style that you really like?

My favourite style is a mixture of high fashion and English style.

Do you think Western fashion and Asian's fashion are any different?

I feel that western fashion is influenced by tradition and commerce whereas the Asian fashion is steeped in culture with a vibrant new age twist.

I do feel that over the last 10 years there has been a crossover. Which has been great creatively for the fashion industry.

What's your most remarkable challenge in the fashion industry? How did you overcome it?

I think the biggest challenge for any model is staying “relevant” within the industry and working regularly. I feel the only way you can do that is enjoying the work you do and being yourself.

What's your life philosophy?

Treat people as you want to be treated.

Through the interview, we are closer to this British supermodel, Sam Webb. And know through the words that his key to success is not to cooperate with many famous brands, but to create a humble and professional understanding of fashion. His life is legendary and gratefully we can have Mr Webb in our industry.
