Alton Mason did not go unnoticed last Friday during the Dsquared2 show at Milan Fashion Week. A (un)breezy fall-winter 2023-2024 collection which has drawn the contours of the Dsquared2 man for the next season: fluid, bare, even sassy, he is a man who dares all the key trends of the moment (fringed jackets , cowboy-style leather chaps and boxers, plush bombers or transparent camisoles). Alton Mason, the model with nearly a million subscribers on Instagram, sported a look composed of a long hooded coat lined with fur, khaki Bermuda shorts and a revisited tank top blouse, all completed boxer shorts which protruded slightly from the pants.
Alton Mason, who recently distinguished himself in the cinema in Elvis by Baz Luhrmann, was not content with a confident approach during this ___y and electric show, which celebrated two decades of fashion from the Dsquared2 brand and its artistic directors, brothers Dean and Dan Caten. In an abandoned factory, the show began to the rhythm of “Put your hands where my eyes could see” by New York rapper Busta Rhymes in front of an audience of 1,500 people. Walking quickly, looking nonchalant, Alton Mason then entered the runway in the middle of the show. The model shook the lapel then the hood of the coat, before turning around and completing her passage… A way of bringing the clothes to life? In any case, the general approach was reminiscent of that of another well-known top model: Naomi Campbell.

Alton Mason is undoubtedly one of the most talented models of his generation. At only 25 years old, this Arizona native already has a signature of his own. Like Naomi and her emblematic approach, the young actor does not remain discreet on the catwalks: with a rhythmic step, Alton Mason walks as if he were dancing. Passionate about dancing, he was noticed in 2015 on Instagram when he danced alongside P. Diddy and Lil’ Kim. The first black model to parade for Chanel, he was voted Best Model of the Year in 2022 by the renowned site Models.com. With (already) almost a decade spent on the catwalks, Alton Mason can count on the support of the biggest brands, from Louis Vuitton to Gucci. During Virgil Abloh’s second Louis Vuitton men’s show, he caused a sensation by performing some of the most extravagant somersaults and dance moves in front of the cameras. In 2022, we find him at the cinema with Baz Luhrmann in Elvis. A consecration for this jack of all trades, reluctant to remain confined to a single activity.
