LC:M Day 2- LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN SS16

LOU DALTON

SEVERAL
The collection was inspired by Formula 1 racing drivers, the palette ranges from a travel capsule wardrobe with hints of blue, to a red driving jacket.

ASTRID ANDERSEN
Flashy classics in neon hues, and a couple of new shapes (a lavender sauna suit, who knew?) Oversized shapes took over in silky pastels. Flowing fabrics provided shimmer down their athletic silhouettes.

NIGEL CABOURN
A nautical collection reminiscent of the US and British Navy ships that nostalgia forgot. Nigel Cabourn is known for his outerwear and passion for vintage clothing.

HARDY AMIES
The runway was all checkmate and sportswear, scuba jackers- but not too oversized, and windbreakers became the summer it item during this presentation. Hardy Amies presented (a peek, or a flash of) hues that are synonymous with summer, SS16 can't come soon enough.

BERTHOLD

YMC
The collection featured a variety of woollen headwear, and street stapled bomber jackets. The looks looked understated and effortless, as each look was incredibly ready-to-wear.

MR HARE
Inspired by African tribesmen- headdress included. White collars were shunned as colour-block collarless Dashiki shirts took over. Their closure was asymmetrical (a nice touch) and topped by Varsity bombers. The trousers were sometimes trimmed with prints, but always cropped to show off shoes: sandals, ankle boots, and penny loafers.

COACH
So now we know what it would have looked like if the Beach Boys remixed with 90s New York Hip Hop.


SOULLAND
"Iron Wheel Club"
Featuring tartan, bandana prints, bucket hats, and hoods tied around waists. It's good to see that London's youth came out in force. Flashes of tweed, faux fur, and zip detailing show the modern man's staple wardrobe.

AGI & SAM
Let's take a trip to memory lane. The childlike scribbles, oversized outfits, and face paints, gives us all a lesson in how to draw inspiration from childhood without it becoming a gimmick. The colour blocking was cleverly done, as it didn't take away from the great simple pieces. Also, I want every pyjama item that came down the runway. Let's make this happen.

OLIVER SPENCER

MATTHEW MILLER
Tagged with luggage/hospital tags reading to "conform", the runway was obviously dark and juxtaposed with city slicker hair. At first sight, you see exquisite tailoring and a spring palette that was truly amazing, and if you look further you can see shredded shirts that were worn underneath suits, asymmetrically styled collars, and girls in mini dresses and leather jackets.

LEE ROACH
Lee Roach's background in Savile Row was evident as impeccably suited outfits were on show. The aesthetic was utilitarian and futuristic, the colours were neutral and monochromatic.

CASELY-HAYFORD
The collection was inspired by basketball. The sportswear jersey jumper was revisited by Casely-Harford, and armed with a couple of elbow pads and the clever tailoring that reinvented it as a collarless coat.
