You may have seen many of these men all over town this past February but which one of these will take that exposure to the next level? See our picks of the fabulous faces you’ll be seeing this fall. (with additional reporting by Jonathan Shia)
Christoph Ribbe (left image). Duckie Brown, Siki Im, Tim Hamilton, Rag & Bone and Richard Chai. All the coolest shows booked Christoph. We love his edgy appeal.
Jae Yoo by Gregory Vaughan. Though not Jae’s first season, his Calvin Klein appearance and his follow up work with Ralph Lauren, J Crew and Banana Republic prove his appeal to a wide market.
Joseph Turnbull (image by Betty Sze). This long and lean Englishman appeared in Rag & Bone, Simon Spurr, Loden Dager, Duckie Brown, Isaac Mizrahi, Tim Hamilton and his recent shoot in Vogue Italia shows he can do both shows and print.
Milo Spijkers. He capped a top European show week (Lanvin, Rick Owens, Alexander McQueen) with a special appearance in Marc by Marc Jacobs
O’Shea Robertson. O’Shea’s unique features made Givenchy a fan- booking him in Paris for the show; his 3 looks for Calvin Klein in NY continued to show his versatility.
Phil Moller. Though also not a first season-er, Phil’s excellent showing was in Europe, walking Jil Sander, Versace, Nicole Farhi and Raf Simons; his appearance in the always super cool Marc by Marc Jacobs in New York cements him as a face to watch once he’s done with school in a matter of weeks.
RJ King, pic by Betty Sze. RJ’s appeared in Rag & Bone, Band of Outsiders, Native Son, Loden Dager, DKNY and in Calvin Klein/J Crew presentations. We expect much more from this energetic young man.
Simon Van Meervenne. You have to give it to a young man, only free for 3 days and in those 3 days books Versace/Bottega Veneta in Milan and exclusive Calvin Klein in NY.
Honorary mentions for F/W 11:
Leebo Freeman. It was hard to miss Leebo this season with his shock of blonde hair, opening the buzzed about Mugler Men collection. He followed up with Patrik Ervell and Jeremy Scott but his editorial presence is already being felt.
