Serge Meets Yann
We caught up with model Yann whilst he was enjoying London on holiday from Paris prior to lockdown! He owns his very own skatewear brand and possibly rocks pink hair like no one else.
How did you get into modelling?
Two years ago I was filming for a skate brand in L.A and during two of my best friends based over there told me that I should be a model, and new people I was meeting too. At first, I didn't want, but after I moved to Paris a model scout found me I wrapped my head around it and decided to sign with an agency.
Your wardrobe must-have?
A leather jacket
What is your life motto?
If it was easy, everyone would do it.
What does jewellery mean to you?
I'm born and raised in the Caribbean and wearing gold jewellery like big chains and rings are part of the culture, so I always had gold jewellery and I think it is a good way to express yourself.

Favourite piece from the Serge collection?
Silver Lyra Bracelet
Who is your dream brand to work with?
Fear of God
How are you finding quarantine?
If I was stuck in Paris I would find it very hard since I'm very hyperactive and it would be really hard for me to stay at home, but I was lucky enough to get a flight back to my island where I'm freer
