Mariano Ontañon

Argentinian model Mariano Ontañon has been on our hitlist since the end of 2012, so when we had the chance to get him into the studio on a recent trip to London we didn’t waste anytime.

Fresh off his flight from Milan, Mariano popped in for his digitals in a surprisingly good mood given that the airline had misplaced his luggage!

Mariano first caught our attention modelling swimwear for American fashion label Charlie by Matthew Zink. In January 2013 he made his catwalk debut walking for Givenchy, going on to land their campaign for FW13/14. He can also be seen fronting the Just Cavalli and GAS Jeans campaigns for SS14.

For the FW14/15 catwalk season Marino opened for Dolce & Gabbana and closed for Ermanno Scervino.

Mariano’s editorial credits include Hercules magazine, Self Service, Vogue Paris and GQ Spain.
