THE BLACK BOOK
This month’s names, numbers, events and addresses of note
F or this month’s fashion shoot, we travelled to the English town of Margate with London-based photographer Timo Kerber (who also shot last month’s story in Chefchaouen, Morocco) and French model Yassine Rahal. Born to Moroccan parents, Rahal is instantly recognisable for his mane of lustrous curls, and it was this hair (which, yes, is naturally that curly) that led to him being scouted six years ago in Paris. Since then, he has walked the runway for the likes of Tom Ford, Haider Ackermann and Yohji Yamamoto, as well as appearing in Vogue
Netherlands and American Vogue, alongside French and Brazilian models Cindy Bruna and Samile Bermannelli. Rahal has also been on the cover of Numéro magazine, starred in Adidas campaigns and, this season, is the face of Missoni, alongside Gigi Hadid, in a campaign that was shot by famed fashion photographer Harley Weir.
