I recently posted the new Leather Line from Modus Vivendi. Now, for a deep dive into the minds of the models, Ale and Adrian, who wore it so well ...
Q: In ancient Greece, people believed that you had to take care of body, mind and soul: What are your own habits to support and evolve?
Adrian: Fill myself with positive energy, with good actions, with things that make me feel connected with myself, especially taking care of the soul and mind.
Ale: My diet is nothing special, I think. I always like to eat well, eat a balanced diet in general, train at least five days a week and always rest as much as possible.
Q: Do you think that people can change?
Adrian: I believe that everyone can change with motivation; in my case, the change began thanks to that motivation that made me want to feel better about myself.
Ale: Of course, everyone can change their habits; it is just a matter of trying, and having a good predisposition and willpower.
Q: Who is your favorite person of all time?
Adrian: My favorite people of all time are my parents, both father and mother. I think they are two exceptional personalities. Their way of living, loving and respecting each other every day is what makes me want to be like them.
Ale: If I had to highlight someone who has inspired me in my life, I would say my mother, who I consider my best friend and the one who supports and advises me on a daily basis.
Q: Is family important to you? Do you spend time with them?
Adrian: Family is very important to me, I try to spend as much time as I can with them, telling them everything that happens to me without taboos.
Q: Which causes do you support?
Ale: I am very much in favor of adopting pets, especially dogs and cats, and to stop compulsive buying of them, which often ends in abandonment.
Adrian: I work in an NGO, called Fanvencion, it is a nonprofit organization that is responsible for helping children in hospitals, [with people like me] dressed as superheroes and princesses. I think that simply listening and being empathetic to others is the best way to help.
Q: Do you like cosplay?
Adrian: Cosplay helps me to become everything that I wanted to be as a child. Above all, when I become Spider-Man, it brings me joy.
Q: Have you changed your daily habits to support the environment?
Adrian: Since I was little, I have been raised with nature and with trying to take care of the environment, so it is something that is innate in me.
Ale: Yes, a few years ago, I started recycling all kinds of packaging and waste, a custom that I have implemented in my house and in my family as well.
Q: Are you currently in a relationship? What do you value in a person?
Adrian: I'm single, and what I value the most is the sincerity and the sense of humor. If a person makes me laugh, he has won me. I am a fairly open person who understands everything as long as it is spoken sincerely.
Ale: I am currently in a three-year relationship. For me, the most important thing in a couple is trust, respect and mutual admiration.
Q: Favorite movies, books or music?
Adrian: Avengers: Infinity War is the movie. I am more about reading comics than reading books, but my favorite comic is The Last Song of the Phoenix. My favorite music is always Green Day.
Ale: I'm a cinephile; I usually go to the movies weekly, and although it sounds cliché, my favorite movies are Titanic and Moulin Rouge. I think I like almost all types of music, Beyoncé and Luis Fonsi are some of my best.
Q: What do you do to stay connected with others?
Adrian: I try to take care of those who matter most to me on a daily basis, either by making them laugh or looking for a place to go to dinner to try something delicious.
Ale: I love staying connected with others, especially via WhatsApp, which is currently what we all use.
Q: How did COVID-19 change you?
Adrian: I am quite a sedentary person, so the change was not so great. I was used to being at home, playing online with my friends, and it is something that I have continued to do or even more. I have had more time for myself to think about everything. Now, I enjoy the little things more knowing that everything is ephemeral and that one day it may end.
Ale: COVID-19 has changed my life a lot. Fortunately, I have been able to work this summer, although not as much as I would have liked. As for my daily life, I have had to go back to the Canary Islands, and leave Madrid.
