14 of the Year’s Breakout New Faces Show Off Their Inner Rebels

The end of the Spring 2018 shows offers the opportunity to look back at some of the year’s breakout new faces, the up-and-coming models who have made their mark over the seemingly unending rounds of fashion weeks of the past months. Here, we present our annual roundup of the most promising new guys who stormed the runways this past year. Captured by Matthew Brookes on the busy final day of men’s Paris Fashion Week in June with styling by Christian Stroble, our latest crop is more diverse than ever, encompassing newcomers from China, the Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, France, Germany, Latvia, the Netherlands, Russia, Senegal, and South Korea. With their varying looks, backgrounds, and experiences, no two are alike, but what they all share is an abundance of potential and their bright futures ahead.
