International Menswear Week F/W Season has kicked off with London Collections Men. London is known for its imaginative designers who push boundaries and question the norm. Their bravery and freedom has allowed menswear to progress into areas that we couldn’t have imagined decades ago. These are our highlights from LCM.
Burberry Gone Vintage
For F/W, Burberry took a less refined route. Christopher Bailey decided to go a bit more street and vintage sport, while still maintaining the Burberry aesthetic. The highlight of his show was the styling and layering of the different types of coats and jackets. Bailey took inspiration from the early 1930s and he incorporated it with modern jackets such as the bomber.
Moschino’s Comic Adventure
Jeremy Scott’s designs are always in tune with pop culture and this is illustrated in his F/W 16 show. Scott collaborated with art duo Gilbert & George to bring a collection that provides some much needed comic relief. The highpoint from the show was the sketching on the outfits which made them look 2D.
J.W. Anderson brings Relaxed Winter
Anderson is a designer who doesn’t shy away from exploring different silhouettes and new ways of wearing clothing, and his winter collection is no different. For his show, Anderson has taken our home winter wear, such as PJs, knits and sweats, and turned them into lux items we can wear on the street. He’s achieved this by combining them with different textures and patterns.
Out of the three, which is your favourite?
