I don’t post enough about men’s fashion and I don’t really know why because I find it very interesting and would love to either (a) dress a beautiful man in beautiful clothes or (b) be a man for the day and get to wear some ultra dapper men’s clothes.
Last week saw the first week of fashion dedicated to men, London Collections: Men. The quality and creativity displayed begs the question why has it taken this long? London is the perfect location to kick this new week of men’s fashion off with its edgy street style and modern approach to sometimes dull tailoring that is the perception of the men’s catwalk.
Hopefully this will remain a week in its own right and step out on its own from just a closing day to London Fashion Week. Below are my highlights, very different to one another which only further shows the unique and interesting side to men’s fashion…
All clean lines, whites and creams with the odd dash of colour, predominantly blue. Hints of squares emblazoned subtly on shirts, in long pendants.
Bright colours, patterns, boyish skater street style. Oversized basketball tops, beanie hats and a few slogan tees. This is very much a young, fun collection.
Dark and edgy, very masculine with pops of primary colours and patterns. A much more mature collection in comparison to Topman Design.
Strange, quirky and classic Meadham Kirchhoff. Just as we see throughout womenswear, Meadham Kirchhoff are not afraid of bucking the trend and following their very own creativity. Florals, bright feminine colours and high tops. The models had quotes printed on their foreheads such as “wallflower” and “feminine by proxy”.
