As London Collections: Men is draws to an end, we’ve picked out some of the hottest trends emerging on its runways. The real question is, how many of us could actually see the men in our lives wearing these?
Eary’s runways tapped into the animal print and neon trends as leopard patterns in bright oranges and hot pinks dominated her show. She also decided to blur the lines between separate womens and menswear shows by featuring women showcasing swimwear alongside the men.
He’s renowned for really pushing the boundaries when it comes to conjuring up that androgyny vibe, and this season, it’s definitely his tops that are catching our eye, as patterned halter necks and detailed crop tops were key.
We know that Kane is quite partial to a funky print, and his menswear runway certainly didn’t disappoint, as optical prints in a mix of neon yellows, greens and bold blues came thick and fast.
Burberry had a very distinctive Scandinavian vibe. Bright separates clashed as they played homage to the 50s with key inspiration deriving from Alan Bennett and David Hockney.
Topshop’s runway went all wild wild west, as channeling your inner cowboy was clearly its most prominent trend. Collared silk shirts with spaghetti western style embroidery set the tone. It’s all about that collarbone detailing, so it seems!
Underlying 90s influences were evident as models strutted along the runways in matchy matchy denim outfits, boiler suits and Bermuda style shorts. Wide holed netting was a key feature too, as it appeared in the form of tops and even shorts.
Farhi’s catwalk was a lot more classic with tailored numbers in a palette consisting of cool greys, icy blues and white. The traditional camel coats, biker jackets, monochrome knits and cropped trousers are exactly what we want to see upon our streets next season!
