In His Own Words: Supermodel Alton Mason on Style
If you don’t recognize his name yet, you might very soon.
Alton Mason, dubbed by GQ as the hottest male model in the world and a supernova in the fashion universe, is the star of South Coast Plaza’s new fall men’s lookbook. No stranger to the European and American runways and campaigns of fashion powerhouses, Mason, a dancer/singer/songwriter/filmmaker, brings his own brand of grace and dynamic movement to the latest looks from South Coast Plaza’s major luxury menswear boutiques, including Thom Browne, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Dior, Fendi, Versace, Berluti, Dolce&Gabbana, Zegna, Canali and Boss.
Modeling may take up most of his days at the moment but he’s heading for the biggest pop culture spotlight of them all – Hollywood. Earlier this year, director Baz Luhrmann cast Mason to play Little Richard in an “Elvis” biopic. Before preparing to inhabit his first big film role, the Los Angeles-based multi-hyphenate shared musings on style with us:
“Clothes that are comfortable, clothes that are fly silhouettes, clothes that represent past, present and future. That’s what I look for.”
“The way clothes fit definitely influences my mood, my energy.”
“Something really flowy, sometimes I feel flowy and loose and easy.”
“I really like to dress the way I feel and I can be different from Monday to Tuesday to Wednesday, Thursday”
“My personal style is reflective of how I feel on the inside.”
