Highlights from London Fashion Week Men's AW17
The 10th, twice yearly menswear event has come to an end
Last weekend saw fashion enthusiasts from over 38 countries flock to the UK’s capital to celebrate the 10th London Fashion Week Men’s.
Spread out across various central London venues, the event saw over 50 designers debut pieces from their up and coming AW17 collections, in the form of static presentations and shows across the four-day event.
The event recently saw the exit of big British brands including Burberry, but has welcomed many new talents, including musician Tinie Tempah’s clothing label What We Wear.
Punk pioneer Dame Vivienne Westwood returned, closing the event on Monday after several years of showcasing her collections in Milan.
Check out a few of our other highlight shows below.
Hodges' dystopian-themed collection featured post-apocalyptic prints, digitally printed camouflage Levi’s jeans and trucker jackets, merged with innovative headwear reminiscent of those worn in Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange.
Inspired by Sunday Living nostalgia,
Mullins fifth show saw models in oversized, baggy layers including 90s, VHS-graphic
outerwear options alongside cosy two-tone mohair and denim two pieces, complete
with matching denim rain hats.
Virgil Abloh’s former protégé Samuel Ross' debut show featured a range of contemporary men’s and women’s pieces that feature subtle references to Bauhaus and brutalist architecture. Our favourite piece was the collaborative NikeLab Air Force Ones, which were given a contemporary update with subtle Nike branding and ACW detailing.
Charles Jeffery’s cult clubnight and fashion label LOVERBOY served up a full fantasy performance art piece, which saw male and female models parading the catwalk among paper maché monsters and dancers in androgynous, eclectic looks paying reference to London’s underground nightlife scene.
The conceptual design duo made up of Matthew Dainty and Ben Cottrell returned with an innovative collection made up from organic materials to create a functional fashion forward range for AW17.
