LC:M Day 3- LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN SS16

PIETER
Sebastian Groenen designed items that look normal but are actually exquisite. The tailoring is impeccable,- a result from Groenen's experience with bespoke tailoring-, this is evident with the sharp lines in pyjama like tracksuits, and the placement of wired ring fastenings. The stitching was excellent, heavily branded items were subtle, and tattoo patterns were realised with reverse stitches.

J.W. ANDERSON
A collection inspired by Japanese Silhouettes and martial arts. The looks consisted of karate jackets, a drop-waist trench, and androgynous hourglass enhancing outerwear. Worn with a hybrid a Mary Jane mandal in a variety of colours.

TOMMY HILFIGER

MARGARET HOWELL
A simple monochromatic outfit of immaculate clothing topped by a silk neckerchief. Suits were cropped and laid back, then dishevelled aspects joined the catwalk's otherwise composed looks.

JOSEPH
A reinvention of basics. The brand followed its minimalist status and instead of trying to make a new trend, they just took inspiration from sportswear to make everything better. Pieces were left raw, and layered heavily.

JAMES LONG
Borrowing the palette and a couple of prints from the seventies, the collection was undone, psychedelic, and sports luxe.

RICHARD JAMES
Pastel blue suits, muddied pink jumpers, and ombré t-shirts, all worn with 60s Floral embroidered espadrilles.

BAARTMANS AND SIEGEL
A new take on casual wear featuring an abundance of digital printing of splattered paint for outerwear.

CHRISTOPHER RAEBURN
The collection for the traveller. The looks consisted of muted khakis, camouflage and black leather, topped with bomber jackets.

DUCHAMP
Sharply suited gentlemen, at their best. This season marked the return of their classic bespoke velvet suits.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
Mythical creatures and nautical tattoo motifs helped create McQueen's underwater collection. The looks consisted of patterned suits both in pyjama/robe-like styling, and formal outerwear. Even the monochromatic looks featured a peek of collar with sea creatures, and anchors on the cuffs.

BELSTAFF
Desert dunes and beige camouflage utilitarian wear. There is something for everyone with functional pockets for the everyday man; and for the flashier men: a cinched leather jacket, or tan suede cape.

MAHARISHI
Maharishi delivered a new take on oversized wear with monk warriors in black, white and green.

HOUSE OF HOLLAND

TURNBULL & ASSER
The collection was inspired by travelling. From safari to nautical featuring: Aztec, Tribal, and Japanese prints.

DUNHILL
Fine modern suiting. The designs were sleek, luxe, and styled to perfection; the gold buttons showed Dunhill has revisited this as a new branding for its opulent period. From a dapperly dressed gentleman, to the new businessman, or trilby wearing connoisseur.
