Boys With Beards: New York Fashion Week Edition


As another New York Fashion Week closes out, we’re still processing all the trends coming down the runway. But one trend was everywhere, on the catwalk and off: beards.

Once the provenance of bears and Willamsburg hipsters, full facial hair is tres chic with the haute crowd. Fuzz first sprouted at the Paris shows, then made its debut stateside on America’s Next Top Model with male model Phil Sullivan; who modeled for Lucio Castro this week (above, center).

This week, we found scruffy male mannequins walking in a plethora of shows. And not just a soul patch or mustache—we’re talking full-on Grizzly Adams beards. Check out the hair-raising photos below:
