London Collections: Men, Day 1

Menswear has hit a milestone with this year's London Collections: Men, being the first ever men's fashion week hosted in London! This gave a chance for local men's fashion designers to showcase their signature avant-garde, eccentric and statement street style for men!

London Men's Fashion Week kicked off with designers such as Joseph Abboud, Martine Rose, Paul Smith, Spencer Hart, Oliver Spencer and Hackett. My favourite collections from the day includes Lou Dalton, Topman and Xander Zhou.

Lou Dalton SS13

Sports Luxe and Minimalist fashion equals one stand out collection from Lou Dalton. I feel a celebration of the coming Olympics and an ode to the underestimated skill of British fashion designers resonating throughout this collection. The tough textural fabrics complement the sports shoes in every look, whilst the colour palette tones down what would be an overwhelming collection.

Topman SS13

Topman's latest collection brings to the cold conditions of London the warm colourful vibes of Californian Summer, with eye popping prints, colour clashes and colour blocks. Statement streetwear and sports luxe is once again present throughout this collection, with oversized basketball jerseys, psychedelic spray jackets and mesh blazer jackets and shorts. This collection is one for the daring during the Spring/Summer season.


Xander Zhou SS13

Structural prints on structural garments will always work together well, and Xander Zhou has proven that point right with his latest collection. There is harmony between the bright colour pops and the rigid prints and stiff garments, bringing a collection that is based on the order of minimalism but touches on the playful avant-garde.
