The Fall/Winter 10/11 shows kick off in Milan with the men’s shows starting Saturday. Burberry gets our nod for most media savvy with their live stream of the show. You can check it out at live.burberry.com. The collection, with arguably one of the most coveted lineups of coats ever seen, was a huge hit with the fans who were able to comment as the show livestreamed. Many of the brand’s favorite faces, former MOTW’s Lasse Pedersen,and Albert Krarup, Tom Nicon, Jeremy Young, Charlie France, Robert Rae , James Hampson made their requisite walks but modeling fans enjoyed seeing the the next generation of male faces on the Burberry catwalk.

Alex Dunstan opens and closes the iconic brand (you can check out Alex’s OTM interview here). Expect Benoni Loos, Robbie Wadge, Mathias Bergh, Mark Cox, George Barnett, Bastiaan Ninaber, William Eustace, Jonas Kesseler, former MOTW Alexandre Imbert and Jakob Hybholt to continue to dominate for the next 2 weeks.

After looking at thousands of pictures of young men for the past several weeks, we thought we’d throw out some of the faces that stood out to us from the men’s shows.

Clement Chabernaud, star of this season’s Roberto Cavalli campaign by Steven Meisel was our pick for the top most versatile model of the season with 20 plus of the top shows, including Roberto Cavalli, Jil Sander, Versace, DSquared2, Hugo by Hugo Boss, Louis Vuitton, Thierry Mugler, Raf Simons and closing Prada, Giuliano Fujiwara and Missoni. See our interview with the beautiful Frenchman!

Last season’s set of MDC top newcomers: Benoni Loos, Charlie France, Danny Schwarz, Francisco Lachowski, Johannes Linder, Jonas Kesseler, Lyle Lodwick, Mark Cox, Nick Rea, Nate Gill, Nicolas Ripolll, Robbie Wadge, Thomas Hoefnagels, Vladimir Ivanov andJakob Hybholt all had tremendous sophomore seasons. Mr. Hybholt and Mr Linder had monster weeks racking 17 plus shows each.

Former MOTW’s to keep your eye on from the shows: Callum, Albert, Douglas Nietzke, Philipp Bierbaum, Isaac Carew

Some familiar faces who are not only looking better than ever, some had their best week ever: Bastiaan Ninaber, Gen Huismans, Gordie Walker, George Barnett, Guy Robinson.

Bits and Bytes: New London

May 29th, 2009 |Posted by Betty


Dazed and Confused highlights their picks of the new crop of London boys in this video. Robbie Wadge (above pic), Daniel Hicks and former Model of the Weeks Isaac Carew and Gavin Jones all make an appearance. Just ignore the strange robotic voiceover.

—————————————————-

More tidbits from the September Issue. And it’s juicy. This is one fashion documentary we cannot wait for.

FYI, Mango replaces Penelope Cruz with Scarlett Johansson. At least in this case it’s a celebrity replacing a celebrity and not taking the few bookings left from the poor models!

Check out this half Japanese, half Italian male model from Brazil; we love how diverse and gorgeous the Brazilians are.

More sad recession news. Following on the heels of Christian Lacroix filing for bankruptcy is reports of Veronique Branquinho folding her  line.

Maybe this will stay the heavy hand of the fashion retouchers (see Gwyneth Paltrow’s different jawlines in the link).

If you haven’t seen it already, Forbes has their list of new top earning models!

Miuccia Prada, the reluctant fashionista, gives her first interview in 3 years.

Frances Grill, founder of Click Models and discoverer of Uma Thurman and Whitney Houston, talks about her years in the business.

There’s a new rock-n-roll kid in town and Production is into him.

Check out the models and stars on Burberry’s night. See Helena Christensen, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Molly Sims.

Gisele Bundchen‘s in Versace for F/W 09. By Mario Testino. Against a wall. Again.

The Ones2Watch has 2 especially gorgeous newcomers: Moldova’s Xenia (just signed with IMG) and Rami from Argentina.
