London Collections Men kicked off with a bang yesterday & the Attitude style team were in attendance ready to soak in the latest trends, darting from show to show in our gorgeously designed Renault Twizy.
The first show of the day was Lou Dalton, whose line of superbly cut suits & lust worthy knitwear impressed as did the flashes of tartan and PVC.
Topman Design flashed the first big trend of the season; orange, which featured heavily on cropped parka jackets, lurex knitwear and heavy hiking boots.
This seasons MAN show featured two returning designers and a new signing.
The show garnered an impressive turnout, David Gandy was present sporting a fetching fedora, Tinie Tempah arrived in a full suit and sporting a lot of mankle and Nick Grimshaw sat front row with GBF Henry Holland in an on trend camo jacket.
Astrid Andersen continued her love affair with luxe sportswear and Agi & Sam made great strides with their printed tailoring, this time with a Country House theme running through. Newbie Craig Green reworked black jersey and his models strode down the catwalk with wooden structures attached to their faces. Leaving us wondering if the poor guys were subject to the odd splinter.
After a quick charge we hopped back into the Twizy and darted easily through the traffic to Mayfair for the Fashion East presentations. We loved Kit Neale’s big breakfast themed prints, Meadham Kirchoff’s Great Gatsby style tailoring with added bin bags (!).
One of the big hitters, Richard Nicoll showed a soft structured collection in mint green, with more orange and flashes of silver, clearly metallic’s are here to stay!
At the end of the day, we jumped into the Twizy for one last time to St Paul’s crypt (gotta be the most impressive location of the day) for Hackett’s presentation of sharp as a knife suiting.
By this point we were ready for a drink and a bit of beauty sleep, but we’ll be out and about today getting all the gossip from today’s shows.
