London Collections: Men SS17 round-up
You may have only just started to think about your summer wardrobe but the fashion world thinks a lot faster than you do. Two weeks ago the bi-annual menswear fashion week for men came to London and of course we were right in the thick of the action. So, from the parties, shows, presentations and events, here’s what we loved and why.
Officially the first show of the season and always a real crowd pleaser. In attendance were all the usual suspects – Oliver Cheshire, David Gandy etc. On the catwalk we saw a more commercial collection than ever before, balancing the design element with real wearable pieces that were inspired by the great British seaside.
Bucket hats are back! We all know that spring does not mean no rain, so we were very pleased to see sensible and stylish options for keeping dry at Barbour.
In our opinion, one of the best shows of the week. Not only did it have a great balance of colours, it also had a brilliant selection of pieces that we would wear in a heartbeat.
LC:M is full of fashion darlings and Mazhar is just one of them. His latest collection was full of fluid pieces brimming with street swag.
One thing that you can be certain of during LC:M is that there will not be any reinvention of the wheel at Savile Row. When you see Hardy Amies SS17, you know it’s a good thing. These clothes do not slavishly belong to any season and will never go out of style.
These guys rarely put a foot wrong – we loved the silk, tailored trousers, printed shirts and jackets and the superb tailoring.
Spring tailoring done so right – light and breathable fabrics, soft pastel colours and a youthful charm that was really impressive.
If you are looking for a smart suit, specifically for an occasion next season, Chester Barrie is the place to go. Their spring collection had an amazing array of super smart suiting with checks, tuxedos and three pieces just a few within the selection.
You can never go wrong with a John Smedley knit – the finest fabric in the world, great fit and a fantastic range of spring colours too.
It is now perfectly acceptable to wear printed shirts for the evening with beach sliders.
