Models so Hot They were Featured More than Once! | Paddy Mitchell...

Nothin' going on but the look...
He is one of the most interesting models to have ever appeared in an HCo marketing campaign. You see, he has this very unique, one-of-a-kind look to him...admirers - HCo fans no less - have called him "hot" and "cute," even. Yeah. He is a very attractive guy, but perhaps "handsome-as-hell" fits the bill.

Our man Paddy Mitchell has played the lead modelling role in two Hollister Co campaigns that have brought his image to audiences worldwide! The dude gave game in his first HCo appearance for the Spring-Summer 2011 season. That photography itself was the most alive and rich collection of shots for Hollister, and Paddy ruled it! The photos lasted from 2 February 2011 until 15 July in stores...a pretty long time! During that time, he also appeared in Numéro Homme issue #19 and in the Fiasco April issue. Although not as "wow!" as Spring-Summer, Christmas 2011 brought Paddy back for a "so chill" holiday season which gave him further exposure on the international scene. Not only has Paddy been featured in the stores, but his image is also used to promote various Hollister store openings around the world...This guy's face has been across America, most of Europe, and in China!

Thanks to our reader Oliver for this shot!

So as you can imagine, life's pretty sweet for Paddy - an Englishman, originally from London. He first began modelling in about 2008 and was featured on the cover of Hero Winter 2009/Spring 2010 as a part of its "The faces of tomorrow's fashion" highlight. Reportedly, Paddy was 17 years old in an October 2011 interview (see below). Furthermore, at 6'2'' (188cm), he's into good ole rugby and has had himself some cuts and minor injuries, of course, because its quite a tough sport. Oh, and he is trying to "find his inner geek" since he is already great in math. LOL.

Back in October 2011, the Norwegian-English fashion photographer Cecilie Harris sat down with Paddy for an interview and took some shots. Here's some from the book, Closer, by Harris. The grayscale photos were shot in his room, while the two color images were elsewhere in his home. Click to enlarge on of the three images and read the excerpt...






We definitely wish him the best at his career! And perhaps, who knows, maybe he'll return in the near future as a new face for Abercrombie & Fitch! Now, wouldn't that be totally awesome?!
