Though the men’s collections are frenetically happening in Milan and Paris, London’s phones have been ringing off the hook about hometown boys Jacob Coupe and Charlie France. Jacob, from Nottingham and in his first season ever, opened Prada S/S 10. Birmingham native Charlie, featured at the end of last season as a face to watch on OTM and in the upcoming F/W 09 ads for Burberry,Â was exclusive for the British brand in Milan as well as being Boy 1 at the show. Both young men also held exclusives for today’s Hugo by Hugo Boss S/S 10 show in Paris. 2 models, 2 cities, 4 exclusives… not a bad beginning for the newest English boys on the block.
