Milan/Paris Top Men’s Newcomers F/W 2011

Today the F/W 11 shows commence in NY but for the young men walking, the season’s already begun. Here are our candidates who stood out on the Milan/Paris runways.

Alexander Beck: Prada exclusive then onto Paris where he opened YSL, walked for Lanvin, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Raf Simons and closed for Acne.

David Chiang (left). David’s second Milan/Paris seaason was a breakthrough on the scene with his unique look garnering him an exclusive in Paris with Dior after walking first in Milan for John Varvatos, Missoni, Ermenegildo Zegna.
Filip Grudzewski (right). You name it, the former Daily Duo walked it. Everything from Jil Sander, Versace, Raf Simons, Dries Van Noten to YSL, Kris Van Assche, Lanvin, Dior Homme

Lessandro Reyniers. The former Daily Duo got chosen for Prada, Jil Sander, Alexander McQueen, Raf Simons.

Lowell Tautchin. We awarded Lowell honorable mention last season in NY but his first full show season was, as expected, pretty stellar. Jil Sander, Neil Barrett, Prada, Pringle, Dries Van Noten, Lanvin and YSL were just some of his best.

Robin Ahrens. This new face and former Daily Duo caught the attention of 2 of the biggest brands, opening Prada and walking YSL.

Timothy Kelleher. This young Englishman started slowly last fall but really took off in January when he opened the show for his Jil Sander exclusive and went on to do Raf Simons in Paris.

Tim Meiresone (left): Prada, Z Zegna, Phillip Lim, Costume National, Lanvin, Cerruti, Louis Vuitton were just some of the blue chip clients who fell for Tim.
Tomas Guarracino (right): Gucci, D&G, Hermes, Ermenegildo Zegna, Dolce Gabbana all signed on for his masculine beauty.

Victor Nylander. Including the former MOTW on our list was a no-brainer considering his work this season for Versace and for Dior. Obviously the runway clients agree with that sentiment as he opened Versace/Dior/Kenzo and walked for Prada, Jil Sander, Dries Van Noten, YSL, Raf Simons.

  1. All of them are pretty awesome. I do believe some other guys were a bit underrated this season. My favourites from the list are Tim and Alexander.
    My only problem, is that I’d love to see someone with loads of personality taking the spotlight. I feel many of the kids that did well this season, are a bit blank when you meet them. Of course, personality is not something that casting directors can easily percieve in a one minute interview. Right?

  2. Love David too, but it’s his 3rd full show season over in Europe! Shouldn’t the newcomers’ top 10 be guys in their first season?

    My 2 cents.

  3. Hi, I want to add my opinion here… I have been following the model Michael Wozniak with this website since he started modelin. I went to high school with him and I feel that he is very underrated on this website as a new face!!! HE LOOKS BETTER THAN ALL OF THESE BOYS ABOVE and I know he did shows in Europe because I saw it on his facebook! Hooray for Michael! ok bye

  4. Does anyone notice the last guy Victor Nylander.
    he looks so much like Daphne Groeneveld

  5. i heard David got direct booking for his paris season in Jan 2010… but yes he is very unique and i love his look. I hope he is doing well.

    for my opinion – i think the newcomers dont have to be in their first season… is about their best season to start with their career… and go from there. each one on the list is very interesting and different and best wishes for all.

  6. Dejan Jovanovic. Dejan Jovanovic. Dejan Jovanovic.
    He stands out way more than these guys

  7. Victor Nylander is very beautiful, but he does not have very good skin. Still amazing though.

    the one that truly stands out to me is Robin Ahrens

  8. I wanna be in that list.. But I’ll be on the cover of vogue hommes one day :) hopefully.

  9. Why do classically handsome asian men cant be models, its always this weird undesirable or feminine asian men that get selected?? i wanna see real asian stud/pretty boy, because i am very attracted to asian men but not this david chiang kind of guy….
