Hailing from the sun-drenched, babe-lined landscapes of Southern Brazil, 21-year-old Robert has the fashion pack raving, girls fainting and hairdressers defying gravity. As he strutted his stuff in his socks and his Sunspels for The Royalty Issue, i-D online scooped a couple if quick questions with the heart-breaker.
When did you start modelling? Last October. What one thing do you never leave home without? My iPhone. Boxers or briefs? Boxers and briefs. Who would play you, who would direct and and who would you cast as your love interest in a movie of your life? Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Ford and Angelina Jolie. Which one tack opens your soundtrack to SS12? ‘Fighting Fire’, Breakage ft. Jess Mills. What’s now? Carpe diem.
