Meet The Crew Family
Our models are as much a part of Crew life as our clothes are. The last few years have seen us travel the world from Cape Town to Iceland in pursuit of the perfect shot. We caught up with Benj, Amanda and Sacha to talk fond memories, inside tips and favourite things from the collection.
How long have you been working with Crew?
Over five years now and I can honestly say it’s been such fun. We’ve had some great adventures around the world together; from sailing through tropical storms in the Caribbean to swimming in icy waterfalls in Iceland.
What’s your favourite piece from the new season?
The Padstow piqué sweats are always a favourite of mine. They instantly feel like you’ve owned them for years and are a perfect warm and versatile layer for an escape to the coast.
What’s your favourite British coastal destination?
It would have to be the southwest coast of Ireland, I’ve been going there all my life. In fact, my parents met there as teenagers and have been going ever since. It’s rugged and often deserted, but there’s always a cosy pub not too far away to tuck into a Guinness and a good conversation.
Describe a fond memory from a Crew shoot.
Our recent Cape Town shoot was a blast! It’s such a special place and we had a wonderful team – especially production. By this point, it felt like a family trip. We work hard but we all enjoy each other’s company. It doesn’t feel like work!
Top tip for smart. casual. style?
Don’t try too hard and wear something that makes you feel comfortable. Invest in classic pieces and great fabrics. Classic never goes out of style. Neither does a smile.
What’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not modelling?
Be with my dog! And my loved ones, preferably on a beach with some rosé!
Pick an item from the new season and tell us why you love it.
The new chino collection is great – the fit is perfect for me and the fine touches (stitching etc.) is real quality.
Tell us about a Crew shoot that you’ll always remember?
The first time I shot with Crew was in Colombia – what an incredible country with breath-taking scenery. Not only was it a lot of fun, Crew immediately made me feel like part of the family.
