At this moment we like to make a toast to all the editorials and fantastic ad campaigns our favorite fashion houses has blessed us with. From Calvin Klein’s masterpiece shot by Willy Vanderperre to Gucci’s extraterrestrial campaign! In between browsing the web, having wine ‘o clocks and eating that pizza at the Enfnts Terribles HQ. We were having an editor-to-editor discussion about talented male models who made noise in 2017. Even though the fashion brands invest more dollars in female models, male models are gaining more territory too. We’re not talking about the perfectly shaved household names like David Gandy and co. But rather about the rare boys who took fashion week by storm.
You probably saw one of these guys star in ad campaigns, commercials, magazine covers, and editorials. Anyhow, we are sure you’ll see more of them in 2018.
Alton Mason Jr.
Alton’s career started off a few seasons ago. Quickly after the fashion industry embraced this New York-based rising star. For starters, Models.com named him breakout star of the year. Also, his positive vibes and funky dance moves will make you love him even more. Next to that, he fell into the good graces of Alessandro Michele, Kanye West, and Rihanna, so life can only get better for Alton.
However, we’re going to let Alton Mason’s Instagram account speak for him.
Luka Sabbat is a New York-based creative that started out as a model. It’s not a wonder his career kicked off the way it did. Coming from a very artistic family he pursued his modeling career à la lettre. He went on by booking several modeling gigs and starting a cool project he named “Hot Mess”. Despite his successful journey, he still isn’t into labels and titles. Luka doesn’t care about that!
Follow Luka on the gram, to see his daily street looks. From Off-White to Raf Simons, his closet is full of avant-garde designers.
Jordan Kale Barrett
After posing for the covers of Fucking Young! magazine, Vogue Australia alongside Bella Hadid, and Paper Mag. It looks like Jordan has it covered! However, we really have a thing for this one editorial he shot for Wonderland magazine. Photographed by Christian Oita and styled by Matthew Josephs. We can’t wait to see more of him in 2018.
When you think Gucci gang make sure to include Keiron Caynes. Signed at Tomorrow is another day agency in Germany, Keiron is one of the exclusive boys who dominate the fashion week runways. Often, he gets selected to run the Louis Vuitton and Gucci Shows. Even better, Keiron was last seen in Balenciaga’s SS18 men’s campaign shot by Robbie Augspurger.
Follow Keiron’s Instagram for further updates on his high-end modeling gigs because we just can’t handle his genius any more.
Jhonattan Burjak and Prison Bae
Last but not least, new boy on the block Jhona Borjack and the critically acclaimed Prison Bae.
Whoever thought they had captivating brows meet Jhona Burjack. He’s the newest guy in the fashion scope taking over cover after cover and now he’s shaping the most lavish campaigns, lookbooks, and runway shows too. Also, he landed on the covers of GQ, Wonderland, Vogue, and PAPER. Last time we bumped into him, and Prison Bae, was at backstage at the Plein Sport SS18 show in Milan. Our photographer Giuseppe captured this memorable moment.
Concerning the hot felon nicknamed Prison Bae who was casted by an agent on the basis of his mugshots. His government name is Jeremy Meeks. And we’d be glad to see him in 2018.
