Out of Milan/Paris this past January stampeded a number of fantastic breaking faces. We are not going to lie, it wasn’t easy to compile the following list of our favorite faces of F/W 10. We excluded young men who have top tier campaigns out like the new Brit pack Alex Dunstan/Charlie France/Isaac Carew/Sebastian Brice and the young Swede Alexander Johansson;Â young men around whom clients have already been buzzing ferociously. Because these premium clients and those influential casting directors exert such a profound influence on the entire industry, we’re adding a honorable mentions section to come as a special bonusÂ (after NY fashion week). Only time will tell which of these 10 young men below are in it for the long haul. NY Fashion Week begins today, you may not see a lot of these faces here in snowy Gotham, but count on them for the F/W 10 season.
