London Collections: Men, Day 3

It's the final day of London Collections: Men, and what a milestone the week has been for British Fashion and Men's Fashion! What a privilege for London to host the first week of shows for Spring/Summer Menswear this month.

The final day included shows from J.W. Anderson, Christopher Kane, Baartmans and Siegel, Meadham Kirchhoff, Omar Kashoura, Richard James and Fashion East. My favourites from the last day were Christopher Raeburn, Richard Nicoll and Pringle of Scotland, this day was truly all about Minimalism.

Christopher Raeburn SS13

Christopher Raeburn brings breath of fresh air from conventional fashion by adding in dynamic tweaks to collared shirts, sheer coats and shiny windbreakers. I feel this collection is a vision of future fashion, combining utility and aesthetic. A very clean and refreshing collection, both colour palette and design wise, props to Mr. Raeburn for this wonderful collection.


Richard Nicoll SS13

What I love about Richard Nicoll's latest collection is the total absence of print, except for the regal Imperial blue paisley. Texture, dynamic cuts, geometric patches and zipper details flowed throughout the collection, in simple minimalist style. Pops of colour burst at you, but doesn't overwhelm the message of minimalism in this collection.


Pringle of Scotland SS13

The final collection from London Collections: Men was Pringle of Scotland, one of the leading labels in the world for minimalist fashion, and their latest collection doesn't disappoint. Muted blues and neutrals accentuate the panels throughout the garments, the irregular stripe and tessellated patterns bring fashionable geometrics as a new trend in men's fashion and of course monochromatic outfits were seen throughout the show, another upcoming must-have look for men this season. This collection topped off London's first ever Men's Fashion Week! I cannot wait to see these collections hit online stores and stores here in Australia!
