WhyNot–Coming in at nearly two hundred models strong, Milano agency WhyNot is ready for Milan Fashion Week for the spring/summer 2014 season.

WhyNot–From Garrett Neff and Adam Senn to Vinnie Woolston, WhyNot has stunning talent on hand for Milan Fashion Week but in a strong package that also includes favorites Ash Stymest and Bastian Thiery, the up and coming faces garner great interest. Gryphon O’Shea leads with fantastic attitude, boasting a grand roster that includes Satoshi Toda, Brayden Pritchard, Ralf Javoiss and more.
The Last Lumberjack–General Idea looks to the wilderness for the inspiration of their latest collection, modeled for the fashionable lumberjack. Working with layers of varying proportions, camouflage made the range’s first statement, covering cropped jackets, while also serving as trim for shorts and accessories. Meanwhile, the henley was reinterpreted as an oversize boxy tee that reinforced the collection’s youthful edge. Employing color blocking for warm accents of yellow and orange, the season’s remaining pieces played into a relaxed west coast world where dressing is as easy as a blind grab, mixing and matching printed tops, long jackets and shorts for a cheeky but stylish finish.
Street Couture–For their spring/summer 2013 menswear collection, Frankie Morello designers Maurizio Modica and Pierfrancesco Gigliotti had a little fun, leading their man into a campy version of a dark and urban Los Angeles. The classic duality between black & white accompanies the Frankie Morello man. For this collection, the designers revisited the traditional streetwear and sportswear, embellishing them with gold reflections, as seen on the metallic mesh pieces or into the oversize golden jewels and chains. Frankie Morello’s man of swagger also loves to get dressed in a sophisticated and sartorial way, reworked for the occasion in an unconventional way. Think about python prints, that decorate leather or techno-fabric pieces, black lace, sparkling crystals details, or the exclusive “Ghetto Blaster” motif that revisits the legendary boombox, the inseparable techno-friend of a real “B-Boy”. This collection is surely about sportswear and streetwear, but the way they’re presented is definitely more detail-oriented, revealing an almost-couture sense of style.
WhyNot–Boasting an impressive roster of over a hundred faces for the season, Milano agency WhyNot reveals a menu of sorts that takes into account the engaging whims of several of the world’s top design houses. From Prada-ready runway sensation Andrey Smidl to current Giorgio Armani star Florian Van Bael, WhyNot easily houses the coveted blue-chip boy. Adding to the list with a long proven track record, models such as Mathias Bergh and Jacob Coupe stand out from the pack while new faces like Stefan Pollmann offer a glimmer of the next wave.
Project Boy–Photographer Emilio Tini turns it out like no other can, approaching an ambitious number of boys for a new filmed project entitled The Backstage Project. Sitting for the black & white session are Adrien Sahores, Baptiste Radufe, Bastiaan Van Gaalen, Charlie Timms, David Hlinka, Duco Ferwerda, Ethan James, Greg Nawrat, Jakob Wiechmann, James Chuter, Jamie Wise, Jesse Shannon, Karl Morrall, Keno Weidner, Kim Dall’armi, Lenz von Johnston, Matt King, Milo Spijkers, Paris Nicholson, RJ King, Sasha Weissenborn, Thomas Bukovatz, Tomek Szalanski and Victor Nylander .
