Mason & Stirling Heart Style Voyeur

WELOVE

Mason & Stirling are two regular jokers from Perth, WA who just happen to be top international male models and complete legends taboot.

Being touched by Mr Armani, walking for the likes of Fendi, sketching masterpieces to stay zen, chilling at Lake Como in Lombardy, Italy, Zoolander-ing it up and designing a new headwear label are just a few things these boys call normal at the moment. The boys virtually caught up with Style Voyeur to bring you this exclusive interview direct from from Milan.

Where do you like to go out in Milan/Paris/wherever you are mainly…?

M&S: We go out for aperitivo often in Milan… Which is pretty much you buy a drink for 10 euros and get a buffet of all you can eat Italian food… MAMA MIA!!!! 😀 Other than that, we just go down to the park down the road to work out and relax!

Favourite City…?

M&S: PERTH!!!

Why do you live together…?

M&S: We were forced to, but it forged a great friendship… we are not quite best friends yet, but we are taking each day as it comes and seeing where it leads us!

How did you two meet…?

M&S: Well ever since the beginning we both have been in competition. At the tender age of 3 we both entered into Perth’s most prestigious runway classes. Mason was actually 3 years older than the other kids but his parents lied about his age so he would seem more advanced than the other children in the class. Stirling was taking steroids in order for him to even compete with the other baby models. The officials caught us both and we were banished from the Perth Modeling Scene for 15 years. 15 years later we met at Perth Fashion Festival.

What do you like about eachother…?

Mason: Oh my, where do I start!? He’s just such a lovely, caring human being and a philanthropist at heart, not to mention he is a zen master! Nah, I’m pretty much forced to be his friend because we were put in a room together… awkward! DOUBLE JOKE… He is just pretty cool and ok and good!

Stirling: I like Mason’s massive….voice…. He also brings good value to our Milano crew with his witty humor, superb freestyle rapping skills and endless amounts of energy. I’m also jealous of his facial hair.

How do we know each other….?

M&S: Well back in the day when we were just baby models, Marcia adopted us… raised us to be child stars, but the fame went to our heads and we lost everything and bailed on Marcia… But when we came crawling back, Marcia (being the lovely girl she is) took us in again and now we are all the three best friends that anyone has ever had! 😀

What’s some of you most recent work…?

Mason: I recently walked in Giorgio Armani’s ‘One Night Only’ in Rome and Emporio Armani in Milan Fashion Week. I also recently did a shoot for ‘IT Magazine.’

Stirling: I  did shows for Tom Ford, Kaushal Niraula, Sibling, Fendi, Ermenegildo Zegna, John Varvatos, Francesco Smalto and Berlutti between London, Milan and Paris for Spring 2014.

What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s happened backstage at a show or shoot…?

Mason: I had to go up against Stirling in a walk off at PFF and lost…

Stirling: Mason having the audacity to challenge me to a walk off was pretty embarassing as he’s a pleb model!

What’s the coolest thing…?

Mason: Pretty much every shoot I just muck around and try get some funny behind the scenes footage and that’s pretty cool, because… I’m cool… COOLl!

Stirling: The location shoots are the coolest, being able to travel to the Alps, Florence and Italian towns by the sea.

Best modelling experiences to date…?

Mason: Honestly, the best experience so far was my first big shoot in Perth for ‘LIVE Clothing’, I met some amazing people during that time in my life who I cherish and will never forget for all the amazing times!

Stirling: Meeting Caris in Milan for the first time was probably the best experience

Favourite Cartoon…?

Mason: Pokemon

Stirling: Deathnote, watch it on Youtube and you will lose 3 days of your life!

When did you start drawing…?

M&S: Ever since we can both remember!

Why do you love to draw…?

M&S: We both do it as a form of relaxation. When we draw, it’s a form of mini-mediation, as we aren’t thinking, just being…and we get lots of likes on instagram. hehe

The boys recently collaborated on a drawing of The Avengers that they are going to offer up for charity as soon as Stirling finishes his characters. Mason below sketching at home in Milan – his only reference, looking at a picture on his computer. Amazing!

What do you do aside from modeling & drawing…?

Mason: Me and a few mates back in Perth run a Graphic Design business called ‘Two Of Three’ (www.twoofthree.com) which has experienced so much growth since its inception, so we are looking forward to the future. I am also in the process of starting a headwear brand called ‘Imperial Swag’. I am going to design and manufacture limited edition high fashion snapback hats. Stay tuned folks!

EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK! Mason shares an exclusive look at his upcoming designer headwear for Imperial Swag with Style Voyeur readers. He told me the cap brim is inspired by brogue shoes and made of brown leather, WANT one when they’re ready thank you!!

Stirling: At the moment, I’ve deferred from Graphic Design at Curtin, to just use modeling for free travel and new experiences whilst im still young. To keep myself occupied I stay creative by writing and drawing, so I think I’ll pursue something in that field in the future.. Or i’ll just be an entrepreneurial bagillionair!!! 🙂

What’s your personal style…?

Mason: Mixture of street wear and high fashion… IMPERIAL SWAG

Stirling: I’m like a fashion Frankenstine… Get inspired by anyone with good fashion and piece it all together myself!

Plans for the rest of the year…?

Mason: I just got signed to Storm in London, so after Milan I will go there and check it out. But my main plan for the rest of the year is to go to either China or Bali to source manufacturers for ‘Imperial Swag’ so I can finally turn all my sketches of hats into real products that I can sell. I can’t wait! 😀

Stirling: I live day by day, so no real plans… but my intentions are to travel around Europe with my beautiful girlfriend Caris later on in the year!

Do you have a message for Style Voyeur readers…?

M&S: No… haha YES… WE LOVE STYLE VOYEUR and if you don’t then something is seriously wrong with you and should get checked out! ALSO, follow us on Instagram! haha
