London Collections : Men is fast cementing itself as a high profile event in the fashion calender, after many years of being overshadowed by the behemoth that is London Fashion Week. This last 5 days saw the who’s who of the fashion industry descend upon London to get their first glimpse of what SS16 has to offer, and it seems that this week is definitely one for the guys, with Father’s Day also just around the corner.
We gathered together some of our favourite looks and collections from the London shows, and show you how you can wear next Summer’s trends now.
We couldn’t consider British Men’s fashion without addressing the quintessential British brand, Burberry. For SS16, Christopher Bailey softens a formal, sharply cut suit with the introduction of expertly crafted lace pieces, and updates the classic Burberry trench with lace collars. Another key takeaway piece from the catwalk is that of the cashmere knit track pants, sure to bring luxury to your lounge wear. If lace is a bit too much, take on this dandy trend with the LEWIS Fringed Slip Ons.
A sharp dressed man is a sight to behold, and Christopher Kane does tailoring oh-so-well. Perhaps over shadowed by his first and foremost womenswear line, Christopher Kane’s menswear line is carving it’s own path, providing a clear aesthetic for his man. We love the cross-brand details such as the buckles seen on his peach suit. Get inspired by SS16 this Summer and team a perfectly cut suit with casual slides like the NIKKI Sandals.
This season saw the first ever Coach Menswear runway show, and it didn’t disappoint. Staged in a skate park, this collection had an unmistakeable cool about it, from the shouty neon prints, to the shearling adorned footwear, these skater boys are the gang you definitely want to be in next Summer. Take inspiration from the show and slip on a pair of our textured LENNON Skater Trainers. Additional animal prints are optional.
You can’t deny the clear sportswear influence in Joseph’s SS16 collection, but look closer and you will spot the special details – Track pants in soft leather, your basic white tee madeover in silk. This is a collection for the man who knows what he likes, but wants something extra this time. Timeless classics with a luxury upgrade. Take styling tips from this collection and team your luxe sportswear with the NIKKI Sandals.
With all this talk of men, we can’t forget about Father’s Day, coming up this Sunday, June 21st. He deserves only the best so why not treat him to some fresh kicks from the Ash Men’s Collection? From classic sports shoes to sleek slip ons, you’re sure to find something that says #thanksdad.
