Who Are the New Vanguard Among This Crop of Asian Male Models?

.

Every few years we witness a set of new faces.
Models with immense potential to be the leaders of tomorrow.

As cut-throat and contested modelling is, miraculously each generation
still produce several individuals with a career of stardom.

But just how long does that last? Especially in regard to Asian Faces.
Have the fashion industry fully embraced Asian male models, and how so?

Which then lead us to this, are we having another moment where some models
are destined to be superstars of an international career with all its glory.

Or are we getting ahead of ourselves and this is far-fetched and too early to call it as.
Perhaps there are just a few. Maybe more than ever.
We'll just have to wait it out and see.

.


Well, if there are going to be a new batch of guys... then it's rather fitting to revisit
some men that made an impact in Asian male modelling history. For real.

An array of multitalented creatures of another era 🙌

^ Guys who couldn't make it to the shoot: Zhao Lei, Nan Fulong, Jerry Fu, Yusuke Ogasawara, Rojam Wang & Paolo Roldan.








So who are going to front these campaigns:

Alexander Wang: ........is he going to have an ad for FW18? Will there be a Matrix theme with that Asian cast?

Calvin Klein: Gonna be a big cast again? What's the direction for FW18? Might have a diverse cast as previously? An Asian? Or will Wangy Xinyu make it thrice.

Givenchy: She's practically the muse of the house, and heavily featured in their projects - Sohyun gotta get that campaign too, no? Maybe He Jing, another choice.

Louis Vuitton: Sora is! She's still exclusive right? Will there be other Asians?

Max Mara: Since Fei Fei is in the Pre-Fall ad, could she be a part of the main campaign too? IDK.

Prada: If they're continuing the series, likely will include an Asian? Ashley's favourite new Asian model is Jiali Zhao. What are her chances? She made her debut there, walked three times already...

Salvatore Ferragamo: Maybe they'll cast another Asian (after Fei Fei, Xiao Wen, Ming & Jing Wen)?



Any possibilities/likelihood with other brands not named here?

I think Alexander Wang will most definitely feature a couple Asian faces for the campaign to reflect the direction of the runway.

Sohuyn Jung has been all over the runways these days. She has a good chance of landing Givenchy. Same goes for He Jing. I'm just really happy Givenchy is embracing Asian models, a stark departure during Tisci's era.

Calvin Klein probably will feature Wangy. I don't know why Ashley has an affinity for her, she has an okay look.

Ferragamo might go with a different Asian model this time if we based it on their casting history. I think Sora might be it.

Prada - I'm keeping my fingers crossed for my three favorites to front their ad: Liu, Fei Fei, and Sora. Liu's new hairdo has been giving her a fresh look. I hope she will be Ashley's new favorite. Ting Chen could sneak in.

Chloe - Liu wen

Miu Miu - Ting Chen

Bottega - highly likely they'll have 1-2 Asian models.

Marc Jacobs - Songhwa Oh closed the show. She might have a shot at the campaign.

Its easier for me to break it down by girls rather than brands:

Cong He - honestly, not sure.

Jing Wen - hard to know since she had that Visa situation. Have no idea when she resolved that, but if she did it quickly, maybe Chloe?

Sora Choi - Louis Vuitton for sure. She opened Coach so thats a possibility (although Ashley tends to cast her newer asian faces for this campaign). Hoping something new like Ferragamo. Honestly, she really could be in any ad at this point.

Hyunji Shin - Dolce & Gabbana confirmed. It seems like Brokaw has renewed her interest in Hyunji, so maybe Chloe, Coach, or Zara.

Wangy Xinyu Calvin Klein probably.

Ting Chen - She seems to have strong backings from Brokaw and Bitton. Maybe we will see her in Coach, Zara, MJ, or Miu Miu.

Sohyun - Givenchy or Alexander Wang since she closed both for FW 18.

Jia Li - She seems to be Brokaw's new favorite. Maybe JW Anderson or Prada.

EZ - I think she might be a shoe-in for Wang

Xie Chaoyu - Another Brokaw fave. Maybe Coach, Prada, or Zara.

Yoon Young - Fendi. Shes pretty well liked by all Casting Directors so Im sure she has many options.

Hoyeon Jung - Chanel

Liu Wen - maybe Chloe. Would be a dream to see her shoot for Prada. Maybe even Alexander Wang.

Kiko Arai - maybe Balmain again.

Songhwa - MJ

Fei Fei - hard to know, but she will probably show up in some Meisel ad. He seems to be everywhere nowadays.

Those are some strong candidates that are likely, and some are wishful thinking (I agreed though). It was all good predictions/analyses from both of you! Enjoyed them.

Thought Etro/Balmain was unexpected for SS18 and Stella/DVF was for FW17. Hope this carry on to FW18 even among lower tier brands!

And so happy for both Dylan/Luping. Finally Armani is enlisting Asian faces particularly for its mainline campaign! Overdue and clearly neglected a long-lasting, and target demographic for a decade now, but glad they made the move.



Intrigued for Chu & Dipti. Just what is it. Big FW18 campaign?

Groundbreaking scene at Prada's Men SS19 show.

Never in the history of Prada has there ever been this many Asian
walking in a single season. Jinjja!

What prompt for this casting decision all of a sudden?
There's gotta be a motive, with good reasons for this. What are they trying to say here,
or the objective at large?


.

Certainly this has been Prada's best cast in terms of inclusion and quantity.
See if this is a new beginning, and whether could keep up with the women's show.

Well, the stats conclude that 13 Asian men has ever walked for the house.
Before this season only eight models were cast.

This season Giorgio Armani surpassed its own record with the addition of
two new faces from last season, making 10 the most walked yet.

And like any Armani collection that boast 60+ looks,
the number of looks worn by Asian men also increased, which is the norm for Armani,
and especially because of the Asian models in itself.

.

With its F/W 2018 campaign devoted to Asian faces (both men and women),
it appear the brand are taking significant measures to, perhaps,
reach their Asian audience at the core. Quite bold.

Whatever strategy they're trying to achieve here, it simply looks brighter
knowing they have put some effort and with positive changes. Bravo!

.

Here are some facts:

Quote:

Models that walked the most: Tony Thornburg (11x), Paolo Roldan (8x), Hao Yun Xiang (8x) & Zhao Lei (7x)

Number of times an Asian model open show: thrice, FW16 by Tony; SS16 by Paolo; SS12 by Philip Huang

Number of times an Asian model close show: once, SS16 by Paolo

Since 2008 only Tony and Yun Xiang have front a mainline campaign, FW18 and FW17 respectively



SS19 - 10 models / 18 looks

FW18 - 8 models / 14 looks

SS18 - 4 models / 8 looks

FW17 - 5 models / 6 looks

SS17 - 3 models / 4 looks

FW16 - 5 models / 8 looks

SS16 - 5 models / 8 looks

FW15 - 5 models / 7 looks

SS15 - 8 models / 13 looks

FW14 - 5 models / 6 looks

SS14 - 1 model / 2 looks

FW13 - 6 models / 10 looks

SS13 - 3 models / 5 looks

FW12 - 3 models / 5 looks

SS12 - 4 models / 6 looks

FW11 - 4 models / 5 looks

SS11 - 2 models / 3 looks

FW10 - 2 models / 4 looks

SS10 - 0 model / 0 look

FW09 - 3 models / 5 looks

SS09 - 1 model / 2 looks

FW08 - 0 model / 0 look

SS08 - 0 model / 0 look
