Introducing the breakthrough Japanese male model

  • Text by Emi Kameoka

Moving up to Tokyo from the Nagasaki prefecture at the age of 18, Shohei Yamashita started to study at Bunka Fashion College. Soon he got scouted by one of the most famous Japanese stylists, Tomoki Sukezane and first modeled for POPEYE magazine. Since then, even without an agent, he has modelled for countless publications, including some visuals of Yuima Nakazato, the new star Japanese fashion designer. His androgynous look and personal style engages people’s hearts and minds. Here for Satellite Voices is shot only in local Japanese labels.

Satellite Voices: What is your most memorable shoot?
Shohei Yamashita: With Thomas Maier, designer of Bottega Veneta. And it was very inspiring to work with Matthew Stone and Yuima Nakazato.

SV: What kind of clothes do you like to wear in your daily life?
Shohei Yamashita: I like like suits.

SV: What are you thinking while you are modeling?
Shohei Yamashita: I think about the aim of the shoot and put effort into my presentation. I try to see myself objectively.

SV: What do you think is the Japanese male beauty?
Shohei Yamashita: Frame.

SV: Do you want to push for Milan and Paris men's fashion collections?
Shohei Yamashita: I would love to, I want to know how far I can go.
