Nicklas then shot editorials for AnOther Man and Interview Magazine followed by a busy fashion week in June.
His other editorial credits include Bon, DSECTION, VMAN, GQ Taiwan, Fashion For Men, TenMag, Tendencias and ****ing Young.

How were you scouted: I sent in photos to my mother agency 2PM after being turned down by two other Copenhagen agencies.
Best feature: I’d like to think I’m genuinely a nice person.
Favourite grooming product: Coconut oil – don’t put stuff on your skin you wouldn’t put in your mouth.
Favourite food: Everything bbq, anything spicy too…
Hobbies: I read a lot. I have this ongoing goal to read one book a week. I really enjoy coming up with strange dishes and lifting weights too. I used to play rugby and make my own music, but ever since I started modelling those things have kinda been down prioritised because of all the travelling, which is a huge pity. I’ll get back into it at one point.
Fitness Regime: 10 x 100m sprints. I’m a big believer in interval training. Weight lifting too.
Favourite Movie: Stepbrothers
What was the last track you listened to on your iPod: Of Monsters and Men – Little Talks (Bombay Bicycle Club remix)
Guilty Pleasure: Eating, a lot.
Dislike: Politics and television
Dream country to visit: Don’t really have any one place I want to go. I want to see everything and I’ve got plenty of time to do so.
If you got to relive one day in your modeling career it would be: The very first show I did I guess. Calvin Klein in January 2012. The buzz you get from runways are never the same as that first time.
Who are your idols: Tim Ferriss
What was the last thing to make you laugh out loud: This >> youtube.com
What was the last dream you remember: The other night I dreamt I was getting mauled by zombies. It kinda sucked. I really want to get into lucid dreaming though and learn to control my own dreams.
One word to describe yourself: Hungry. Not food wise, but knowledge and experience wise.

we are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams. wandering by lone sea breakers and sitting by desolate streams. world losers and world forsakers, on whom the pale moon gleams. yet we are the movers and shakers of the world for ever it seems
