Meet James Gatenby.

He’s a high-profile model who’s walked for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten, and everybody in between. For the month of June—or what has been rightly re-appropriated as the reign of menswear—James will be sharing his most intimate, #filterless moments from all four European Fashion Weeks exclusively on Outfitted with a cellphone and heaps of designer fashion, James invites you to join him on his selfie-filled journey abroad. First stop? Pre-PFW castings last week.

“Boys outside. Casting line inside is an hour so they escape for a quick cigarette.”

“Taking a break to read and goof in the park. Albert Camus’ literary work is getting me through these long lines, and in fact, I’m staying with a French literature professor in Paris! ”

“Chilling by the river after a long day.”
