fall shwpckg: dna model men, new york
by Jeremy Danté
with an increasingly impressive men’s board presented for the fall show season in new york, DNA models has been much more well known for their women’s board. with an intent to change that perception, probably one of the most successful & groundbreaking models on the men’s board is andrej pejic. with a look dipped in androgyny, andrej has been picked up as a favorite of jean-paul gaultier, booking the gaultier campaign & haute couture runway show, closing the show as bride, last month in paris. in addition to pejic, colby jamar, dominique hollington, dorian cobb, grayson vaughn, josh beech, lasse pedersen, mark cox, nils butler & philip huang have been seen faces & known names in both commercial & high end bookings. one of my favorite male models of this batch is dominique hollington, who made an agency switch previously being signed with red models. you’ve seen dorian cobb appear for H&M, josh beech appears in the SS11 moschino menswear campaign. as the world of male models swells with popularity, DNA models has a strong cast of males that will be watched on the runways.
