As another New York Fashion Week comes to an end, and as I look through all the men’s runway images and studio presentations, I’ve noticed a large use of bearded models among several designers including Lucio Castro, Michael Bastian and N. Hoolywood (respectively pictured above).
This summer beards made a comeback at Paris shows, and America’s Next Top Model (now featuring men) includes a bearded model named Phil. No doubt beards have been in style, well groomed and tamed ones of course, but will we see more bearded gents on the catwalk again in February among their clean, shaven brethren? And do we want them to?
