We attended many shows during London Collections: Men. Here are some of the highlights from collections that caught our London fashion editor’s eye.
Savile Row and St James & Woolmark
Every season London Collections: Men collaborates with bespoke tailors of Savile Row. The presentation had an essence of British aristocracy set in the Apsley house similar to the looks you see in the period drama Downtown Abbey, the collection of Savile Row and St James & Woolmark consisted of traditional menswear tailoring and equestrian attire, the looks were predominately created from tweed, woolen and neutral tone pallets.
Agi & Sam
Agi and Sam are always refreshing to see on the catwalk, they are the new generations of British menswear designers that continue to push the boundaries of creativity, Their autumn winter 15 collection consisted of playful color pallets embodied into their collection looking like a color splash of an artist work on a canvas embracing a bold and colorful look to menswear.
Maharashi was exciting to see on the catwalk, the collection was a cross between the London street wear culture scene meets Ninja inspired, overall this collection was exciting to see as I feel Maharishi embraced elements of the London youth into his collection, the soundtrack of the show was totally amazing to hear models walk down the catwalk to grime music (British rap music).
E Tautz simply embodies the mix between traditional and modern day British menswear, the collection consisted of white and greyscale color pallets with flared trousers, chunky knitwear, slacked shirts that were loosely fitted, and suiting jackets layered over oversized elongated overcoats.
Christopher Raeburn is known for technical outerwear every season, his autumn winter 15 collection had aquatic elements in the collection consisting of shark wear prints on the knitwear, water bed inspired puffer coats that you can blow up into a puffer coat and deflate at the same time.
