  5. raie says:

  6. zig says:

    I don’t know about these guys. None of them really striking, Isaac Carew is Milan this season!!!

  7. a says:

    A stunning set of newcomers great job looking out betty :)

    Mark Cox DNA/Success did well in Milan too logging in Jil Sander, Prada, and Gucci.
    Johannes, Nicolas, and Robbie have been doing very well in Paris so far too.
    So far Johannes has been in Hugo, YSL, Dries, Gaspard Yurkievich, and Blaak
    Nicolas has opened Dries, closed Blaak, and walked Givenchy
    And Robbie has opened Blaak and walked Hugo, YSL, and Veronique Branquinho.
    I’m pretty sure as Raf Simons press photos are released we will see Johannes and maybe Robbie.
    Have you guys discovered the name of the Jil Sander closer

  8. Michael says:

    Nicolas looks like a way better looking Edward Norton.

  9. Michael says:

    eh nevermind. just in the thumbnail.

  10. LA says:

    Why are guy models getting as thin or thinner than female models? I know it’s the whole mind over body, intellect thing, but still it would be nice to see some more ‘butch’ guys back on the runways and pages to represent the more booty, broad shouldered, thick legs guys.

  11. W says:

    Francisco Lachowski so cute and hot.

  12. brucegisele says:

    francisco is a greeaaat find and Nicolas as well. beonini looks like a editorial sweeper, charles looks fresh. francisco, nicolas e charles are going to carefully look at this season and seemed to be getting some inspiring male models that’s good. Nicolas has this fire. Gucci needs to hold tight to Francisco cause I can see him in Dolce&Gabanna or Versace.

  14. elisabeth says:

    Watch Edmond Roosendaal, the guy at Ann Demeulemeester’s in Paris, also at Diesel, Milan, earlier and at Masamota in Paris.

  15. Joshua says:

    Robbie Wadge is great!! And I have to say I agree with elisabeth: Edmond Roosendaal has a great face! Who is this guy? I want to see more!
