Alexander Cooper | MODEL

We feel pretty lucky to have met Alexander. The team had been looking for a special someone to feature as our Mr Palas for a while but hadn't really found the right fit.. and then, along came Mr. Right.

Known affectionately as Cooper or Coop to all of his friends and family, our new Mr Palas is one laid back individual. Very quickly we felt at ease asking Cooper if he would like to be involved in our Mr Palas campaign and his answer was a simple 'Yeah..Why not!"

Cooper's always up for an adventure and his personality and style fits the Mr Palas aesthetic perfectly.. relaxed, care free and down to earth. We have loved every minute spent taking amazing photos down at Adelaide's beautiful Brighton Beach with Cooper and we have been charmed to meet him.. x


Country of origin… Australia
Currently living… Adelaide, South Australia
Friends describe me as… Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up
Dreaming of… An endless summer
Guilty pleasure… Adding new plants to my home jungle
Finding inspiration in… Ocean, 1950's film & music
Plan for the future or live in the moment... A bit of both


Are you an early bird or night owl?
Kookaburra.. As long as the day is filled with laughter I'm happy

What are the three things you can’t live without?
Obvious ones are friends & family and the beach.. but that's a given!

Where did your passion for surfing come from?
The vibes, the culture and the fun! It quickly became an addiction..
Being out in the water completely takes you as far away from reality as possible. I like the fact I can escape my everyday stresses and feel at ease afterwards. Give me any type of board to surf, skate or snowboard on and I'll be happy.

What would be your favourite inspirational quote?
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
- Dr. Seuss


What do you do?

What do you do in your downtime?
I love anything out doors.. Surfing, skating, hiking. When I'm at home I tend to my jungle of plants and hangout with my mini lop rabbit named Rupert.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Feet buried under the sand.. watching my puppy playing tag with the rolling waves surrounded by a pink and blue sunset after a long day renovating my future home. Oh... and my girlfriend (future wife to be in my arms).

What do you love most about the Mr Palas collection?
I love the beaten, rustic look. The rough hand made aesthetic of the charms and the natural leather bracelets are understated. I feel like I can wear my pieces with anything and dress it up or down. I like wearing my collection with earthy coloured outfits most.

What is your favourite Mr Palas piece?
The natural leather lariat with the Mr Compass charm would have to be my favourite combination to wear day to day.

How would you describe your family?
Very loving & caring.. serious golf enthusiasts!

How would you describe your friends and what is your best memory with them?
Loving, caring & smart but very cheeky and always up for an adventure and a laugh. My best memories are of our travels.. Surfing the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia, hiking in Hawaii and exploring European beaches.

What’s the one piece of advice your parent's gave you that you’ll never forget?
Back straight, feet planted, arms strong and eye on the prize. (This was some golfing advice, turned into some good old fashioned life advice, thanks Dad)

What makes you most proud of your family & friends?
Their kind nature to everyone and everything.

Who or what inspires you?

Who would you be charmed to meet, and why?
Leonardo DiCaprio.. His insight into pollution, animal welfare and nature is incredible. If we all listened to the information he provides us we could completely change our impact on this world.
