MTM: CLAUDE MORGAN AT BENATURAL


10 QUESTIONS WITH CLAUDE MORGAN words Hugo Fernandes & Sophie Emmett - photography Som Nurarak - fashion Sophie Emmett

He is perhaps one of the coolest and most captivating guys we have ever met, and with a personality that shines bright like a diamond (excuse us, Rihanna) Claude Morgan at BeNatural Japan is our current boy-crush. His unique looks and boyish style make him not only a great model but an even greater guy to hang out with. He is into all things contemporary from Grime and Rap to analog photography and his Instagram account is without a doubt the coolest as the young model brings personality and uniqueness into every post. As a model, Claude has landed major modeling jobs such as a Moncler campaign and walking for Craig Green, Sunnei, and Chalayan Man just to name a few.
