London Collections: Men Catwalk SS15

London Collections: Men Catwalk SS15

Whilst Milan Fashion Week: Men’s SS15 is in full swing we take a look back at some of the trends that we spied on the catwalk of London Collections: Men.  Whilst we’re partial to a bit of drama and art on the runway it was refreshing to see the amount of practical and minimalist pieces this season.  Key influences were Japan, sports, femininity and of course utilitarianism.

 

Now in it’s fifth season LC:M has really come into it’s own – the main question being ‘what took them so long!’

 

We’ve highlighted some of the obvious trends from the key catwalk shows. Check back later this week for highlights of the presentations, off-schedule shows and Milan Fashion Week: Men’s…

 

Off-duty Sports

 

London fashion for men is heavily influenced by streetwear and a big part of this genre is of course sportswear and this trend is showing no signs of dying down.  From the influences of boxing as seen in James Long, KTZNasir Mazhar and Astrid Andersen through to the nod to baseball and a more formal, tailored look as seen on Lou Dalton and DKNY

Denim

Although I’m not sure that you can really call denim a trend as it’s such an everyday part of our lives, this season saw our trusty mainstay receive a modern makeover – double denim and printed pieces recurred on the catwalk.  Topman Design went for a more practical look with a 70’s vibe whilst Katie Eary (again with a 70’s festival influence) and Moschino went for a more playful look…

Stripes

Do stripes ever really go away?  More  a womenswear staple – stripes popped up quite a bit on the men’s catwalk this season.  From pinstripes as seen on J.W Anderson, Casely Hayford and Matthew Miller to the more everyday nautical stripe à la Oliver Spencer and Jonathan Saunders

 One Size Fits All

The oversize trend is  another look that has transcended the last few seasons in both men’s and womenswear.  The looks ranged from boxy to loose and baggy.  Alexander McQueen and Agi & Sam appeared to take inspiration from Japan amongst other things whilst E. Tautz had a very British vibe.  One of my favourite collections came from  Christopher Raeburn who gave his reinterpretation of military-wear.
