London Collections Mens AW17 SeriesSunday, 29 January 2017
London Collections Mens, I love going to menswear fashion week because I get so much inspiration from the collections. My style is very inspired by the men's style so it is always good to get an update on what to copy from them, just kidding.
So this season, I absolutely loved it. The presentations I have been to were are different and all had a story behind which was so captivating. From Phoebe English which exploration into menswear was rooted in reality and inspired by the creative men that Phoebe knows, works and lives with. Phoebe English collection had a focus on functional separates translating into loose coats, hooded jackets, smart folding collars and buttoned shirts amongst relaxed cotton joggers and wide trousers, Barbour International which collection was inspired by the history of British motorcycling, Harrys of London was inspired by a Sporty-Futuristic aesthetic, featuring metallics and fabrics inspired technology, Nigel Cabourn which collection was inspired from the Airborne Forces during the second World War, Belstaff "Jolly Roger" naval and submariner inspired collection is both tribute and testament to the incredible clothing worn by the British Royal Navy throughout WWII and finally Songzio looks represented the young misanhrope's free and light conscience, cocooned by the heaviness of his own asceticism. Free flowing shirts and voluminous trousers are countered and cocooned by long oversize black coats and capes that fall strongly from the shoulders.
