The final day of London Collections: Men consisted of some of British menswear's best, including Paul Smith, Pringle of Scotland, Fashion East and the homecoming show of Burberry Prorsum. American bespoke menswear expert, Tom Ford, also showed his collection to British and worldwide press. Notable collections include:
Christopher Raeburn Spring/Summer 2014
Christopher Raeburn's Spring/Summer 2014 collection is the embodiment of his signature functional style. Compared to previous collections, the earthen colour palette of this collection is odd yet welcomed. The monochromatic-bright mixed palette he usually utilizes may well be behind him, as his ability to incorporate a predominantly dusty brown and bare skin amongst a structural collection is applaudable. Will prints resembling birds-eye photography of deserts be his downfall? Absolutely not.
Nicole Farhi Spring/Summer 2014
The bare skin and nude colour trend is flowing throughout the menswear collections, and Nicole Farhi has mastered it with ease. The high sartorial yet aesthetically relaxing collection of Nicole Farhi is perfect for the man who loves dressing up but aims for a casual approach to colouring rather than the strict professional and timeless colour palette of navy, grey, brown, black and white. A mix of prints and textures encompass the collection - architectural three-dimensional tessellation, thin rectangular grids, creased cotton and monochromatic cotton blend, marking the depth of tailored garments when typical patterns and fabric choices are tossed aside.
