London Collections Men SS17

London Collections Men- the men’s version of London Fashion Week- hit the city this weekend for the second and final time this year. The biannual event held every January and June highlights the growing popularity and importance of men’s fashion- a celebration of the British menswear industry. Myself and my boyfriend, Aaron, headed to some of the shows with Select Model Management to see what’s next for menswear.

I was surprised at just how coherent the shows were, many influenced by world issues and the impact that they have on society. On us. QASIMI did particularly well at communicating this by hosting a digital presentation. Mounted screens showed shocking images of war alongside children viewing the ongoing violence that surrounds them. Other similarities included colour scheme, key items and ummm, sand…

It’s clear that whites, nudes and beiges are going to be a hit. Oh and soft and dirty pinks (yay)! There was a lot of red and orange adding contrast to the otherwise pale colours. Blue and yellow also made the cut. Key items wise we’re talking below-the-knee lightweight tailored jackets, sandals and wide leg pants. It was all very desert I have to say, which brings us on nicely to the sand. Both CMMN SWDN and BERTHOLD had sand on set and QASIMI replaced sand with a sand dune shaped metal structure. Take a look for yourself. Here’s the best of the shows in pictures…

London Collections: Men

London Collections: Men (the men’s version of London Fashion Week) has hit London and it’s all go around the city. Models racing between shows, backstage snaps filling our Insta feeds, celebs, bloggers and fashion insiders all eagerly awaiting to view what designs will be hitting the catwalk and not to forget the flustered photographers fighting for the perfect shot. It’s manic and I love it!

LCM always gets me that little bit more excited than LFW. Strange, as surely I should be more intrigued as to what creations will be influencing my clothing for the up-coming year? Perhaps it’s all those beautiful men showing off their hot bods and chiselled faces, or maybe it’s the fact that David Gandy is definitely going to be in town and I might have a chance of bumping into him and him whisking me off my feet… Hmmm, just maybe. But what I think really gets me excited about the Men’s Collections is the acceptance of male fashion within the industry.

Menswear has exploded over the recent years and men can now be involved in fashion without being ridiculed. It’s amazing. I see LCM as a breakthrough across the world and one that’s only going to get stronger. If you haven’t seen the collection yet, have a little look below for a series of my favourite shots from the shows so far. xx
