London Collections: Men, powered by Renault (Day 4)

By Joseph Kocharian

Our fourth and final day at LC:M, powered by Renault came and went with plenty going on including the show that is always most anticipated, the Burberry show. We began the morning heading to Katie Eary.

Eary toned things down for AW16 with a much more subtle use of print. There was a mix of masculine and feminine with thick stripes careering off in every direction, polka dots and  exotic silk patterns that gave a great balance of the soft and hard. We’re used to a vibrant show of colour from Eary, but this season she has chosen to go for an infrastructure of black to permeated through most of the collection giving a strong graphic aesthetic. The loose open silk printed shirts showing plenty of skin, complete with wide legged trousers and  longer outerwear made a strong head to toe outfit and softened the harder patterns in the collection nicely.

We headed  headed to Kensington for the the Burberry show, arriving in the familiar tent packed full of celebrities. Steve McQueen, Brooklyn Beckham, Tinie Tempah, Jourdan Dunn and Dougie Poynter  all made up the packed front row.

In a lovely touch, David Bowie, whose death had been announced in the morning, was played over the usually buzz of press packing into their seats. The tribute made it’s way on to the catwalk with  irredecent brushtrokes of glitter grazing the cheeks of some of the models, giving a great homage to the British music icon.

As Bowie finished, the models began to saunter out showcasing an amalgamation of all the previous Burberry lines as Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine performed live in the hub of the catwalk. There was the infamous check, the trench coat, flight jackets and the colour palette we come to expect from the British brand. Burberry also stepped up the sport this season, with trainers, puffer jackets and tracksuit pants and tops. The sports luxe was laced with shine, as garms were embellished with sequins giving a metallic edge to the proceedings.


Bobby Ably brought the spirit of Rio to the catwalk, with Brazilian flags, and patches, football shirts. Feathers on bags, on their legs  tucked under their socks in primary colours and plenty of flesh on show. towards the end Christina Aguilera raised her Pop Queen head with slogans such as ‘I love Xtina’ as well as drag queen channelling Christina’s infamous Dirrty video outfit with a ‘Dirrty slogan on the top.

And so our LC:M AW16, powered by Renault has come to a close. We hope you’ve enjoyed the ride as much as we have.
