Guy Files: Behind The Scenes At New York Fashion Week: Men's

ALIVE photographer David Vassalli was backstage last week at New York Fashion Week: Men’s, capturing some intimate footage of the designer collections. The trends this season are anything but boring: Oversized tailoring, black and white and graphic prints shared a presence in most collections that walked the runway.

Male models also shared some physical attributes. Haircuts on the guys were left much longer, and we can expect this trend to take shape in salons and barbershops as we close out summer for fall this year. You’ll also notice the lack of bearded men. The clean-shaven face definitely took the spotlight this season.
