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.

VMan is dedicated to pushing mens fashion forward. The Summer 09 edition gives us a taste of what’s to come for fall and focuses on the designers committed to bringing menswear into the forefront – Rick Owens, Riccardo Tisci, Rei Kawakubo and  Raf Simons, just to name a few. Terry Tsiolis creates an edgy portfolio celebrating fashion on the fringe and models Joseph Culp, Kyle Saunders, Julian Hennig, Andrey Ivanov, Devin Childers, Tomek Szczukiecki, Danny Schwarz, William Eustace, Mikus Lasmanis, Keith Browning & Ludwig P are all enlisted to add attitude. The clothes may be designer but Jay Massacrets savvy styling is all about the youthful eccentricity of street culture.
