This book, the first up-to-the-minute survey of the exciting new trend, features forty of the most interesting and innovative menswear illustrators.

Richard Kilroy, a top menswear illustrator, has brought together the most versatile creative talents from around the globe, including from the United States, France, Russia, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong and Korea.

This new generation of artists is redefining the look of fashionable men, who are alternatively sexy, sharp, rakish or cool, with outfits straight off the catwalks or pure street style. From the exuberant street sketches of Richard Haines, drawn then and there on the streets of New York, to the delicate drawings of Cédric Rivrain for Lanvin, or the bold graphic approach of Donald Urquhart, these groundbreaking talents are expanding our perceptions of the modern man.

Whether drawn in pencil, splashed across a sketchbook or digitally rendered, the work is as varied in style as menswear itself.

Richard Kilroy is a fashion illustrator, writer and editor, whose clients include Christian Dior, Canali, John Smedley and various magazines, including Numéro and VMAN. He is a guest tutor
at the Royal College of Art, London, and design tutor at Central Saint Martins, London. He publishes Decoy Magazine, which is devoted to fashion illustration.
