Take a hockey player with a beautiful body, and place him on the catwalk of a super cool fashion brand: the result is a sure victory! Filip Hrivnak, 21 year-old- Slovak model, is building a truly remarkable career in the fashion world, but without abandoning his love for hockey, swimming and tennis. In 2013, this sportsman started dividing his time between playing and being on the catwalk, appearing at the shows of MSGM, Calvin Klein and Balmain.
This tall, dark and handsome man also attracted the attention of Emporio Armani, who picked him as testimonial for the Spring Summer 2016 campaign, while Versace chose him for its Spring 2017 campaign, photographed by Bruce Weber. His idol is is Canadian model Simon Nessman, and he dreams to become an underwear and fragrance model for Calvin Klein. He is very self-assured, and he declared in an interview that he is aware of his appeal thanks to women’s fascination with him. Still, he doesn’t like posing without clothes, he doesn’t like to go and there is a clear line he doesn’t want to cross: in the editorial “Love Machine”, in which he featured with Lara Stone for W magazine’s February 2015 issue, he thanked photographer Steven Klein for respecting his wish to not strip down too much. We can see his integrity in his gentle blue eyes, he has a gentleness to him that he doesn’t try to hide and that he openly expresses by talking about his wish for a family: he dreams of becoming the father of a future little football player boy. It seems he hasn’t found his soulmate yet, so, there is still time for us to win his heart!
