London Men’s Collection SS16

posted in: Fashion Week | 0

Our beloved city has once again paid homage to the driving forces of fashion. From the archetypical classic houses, to the innovative fresh labels, there was a different kind of beat pulsating through the air in London. Whilst every moment in our home city is a treasured one, the best parts of the LCM SS16 shows are as follows, and ones to be followed.

70’s Wide Legged Trousers
Best believe the wide leg is back. The glitter and the glam is still in the 70’s, where it should be kept – but this new flare has a kick of its own. It’s about the movement of the fabric, and the way the models use their walk.

Suede Jackets And Bombers
The aviation of this trend compliments the continuing vibe of loosely fitting clothing throughout all of the shows, but coating them in suede refined the casual look.

Shirts Hanging Out From Blazers
Carefree, blasé, and slack, even the untamed shirt can be civilised. Less is more when it comes to accessories and the more shirt the better, but keeping it tailored, and just below the hip.

Socks Sticking Out Trainers

Hiking through the sea of noting faces came the ultimate prep accessory. Whether they are sagging around the ankle, or tight scaffoldings up the calf, it worked. It looked fresh. The understated sock is a must.

Harmonised Stripes
Horizontal, vertical and pixilated shafts were spotted on materials in Casley Hayford, TopMan and Lou Dalton’s shows. This trend has been around for a few seasons but we just can’t fault them. To create the illusion of a broader stance or to add length to the height conscious, these simple stripes strip away the boundaries of reoccurring trends and excite the visionary senses. This look doesn’t even need to be bold, but does need symmetry.

New Jungle Prints
Welcome to the jungle, and what a surprising place this is. Not just using the jungle but using the planes of Africa as playful inspiration to girder the runway. Giraffe prints, glossy and tropical plants tumbled onto the fashions and gave the senses a real primitive and tribal vibe.

London has left our senses tingling and stimulated, at least until the next set of shows. Poetic, playful and although reminiscent of many previous trends – fashion is a born again entity that will travel through time as the trends showcased in our beloved London have revealed.
Long live Britannia!
