Celebrity kids are having a major moment in the world of modeling. Case-in-point: Jane Birkin‘s 12-year-old granddaughter scoring a role as the fall face of Comptoir des Cotonniers, Cindy Crawford‘s daughter Kaia Gerber, 13, in Vogue Italia, and 16-year-old Lily-Rose Depp landing a gig as a Chanel model. Now, there’s another name to add to that list of child models representing adult brands: 11-year-old Frasse Johansson, a.ka. Acne’s face for Fall 2015.

Frasse is the son of Acne Studios’ creative director, Jonny Johansson, and was snapped in the line’s womenswear collection—in one look he rocks a pink coat, fierce metallic heels and heavy jewelry.

“I’ve seen this new generation’s attitude to fashion where the cut, the shape and the character of the garment is the crucial thing, rather then seeking approval from society or to follow set norms,” Johansson said of the campaign in a statement. “I immediately pictured Frasse, since he embodies this new breed to me. I asked him and I’m happy that he wanted to be a part of the campaign.”

Frasse may have been happy to appear in the campaign, but he did have one issue with the shoot: “Walking in high heels is so hard, and I don’t understand how anyone can walk in them,” he told WWDWe totally feel you on that one, buddy.
