We spent the afternoon with California’s Caleb Trent, one of Premier’s men about town…
How and when did you become a model?
I was partying in a club in L.A, at first I thought I was being hit on. At the time I just had a regular day job, so liked the idea of getting a chance to travel.
What were you doing before modelling?
What do you like to do when you’re not modelling?
I do a lot of outdoor stuff back home in California. In winter I like snowboarding and in the summer I surf and ride my bike.
What type of music do you like?
I like a lot of different kinds: hip-hop, punk, classic rock. I grew up listening to Modest Mouse, they were a big influence on me when I was in my punk band. Music has definitely had a big influence on my life.
What’s your favourite film?
I’m really into films. I love Guy Ritchie films like Snatch and Lock Stock… I’m also a big fan of Quentin Tarantino.
What shows did you walk in last season?
Dior, Kris Van Assche and some more I can’t remember! I prefer the shows to editorial shoots as everyone knows each other from all the castings so it’s fun to hang out and there is so much energy.
Do you have a particular photographer you would like to work with?
Paolo Roversi was really cool, he’s really real and focused but is also there to make you relaxed and have a good time. His studio is really nice.
What’s your favourite item of clothing?
My boots and leather jacket.
What’s been your favourite fashion moment so far?
The Dior shows; the people are great so they are a lot of fun to do.
What would you like to pursue, career-wise, in the future?
My end goal is to become a filmmaker. I’m going to see how modelling goes then try to move into acting and filmmaking. I would like to spend some more time in New York and London, but California will always be my home.
