With Milan Men’s Collections in full swing, the Cut sent photographer Kevin Tachman backstage to capture what it’s like to be a male model during the shows. He found hairclips and abs at Calvin Klein, and a stunning array of Technicolor patterns at Gucci (including a David Bowie tribute jacket). He also captured the smoldering gazes of Bottega Veneta’s models and luxurious plaids and leathers at Prada.
Between runway walks, the guys spent their time getting makeup applied and relaxing with friends. Click through the slideshow for a behind-the-scenes look at Milan Men’s Collections.
