With London Fashion Week AW16 shows beginning in just 12 hours, we wanted to bring you a short article featuring some of our most favourite collections seen at London Collections: Men this January. This is our Thursday’s #throwback.
Keeping up with the British heritage, Barbour kept the ‘country boy’ style vibe with casual and laid back details. Looking at ancient tartans, the collections keeps the cream, yellow and green shades within the colour palette. The garments are still kept very practical but sophisticated as Barbour classic aesthetic.
Setting the scene in funfair style, the attire at Universal Works was very layered and a mixed colour palette of dark, everyday colours. Loose-fitted trousers, shirts with layered workwear jackets, and turtle necks – keeping to the traditional vibe of the brand.
Each season Kane brings new tailored suits to the table. This season there were a lot of dark colours, embellished zips, furs, prints, buttons, gloves – all very detailed and tailored garments. The collection fit perfectly together and around with the detailing and colours. With a live band, ‘dougie‘ walk and an insane location for a catwalk it was not a show to miss this season!
Being one of the big street-wear brands to show during LC:M, Maharishi came back with some very cool military-esque garments. Most pieces had giant pockets, patches, and straps, styled with oversized bags. They really bought back the camo trend with seasons, throwing the pattern on coats, hats, and trousers.
Baartmans & Siegel
The colours seen at Baartmans & Siegel new collection really stood out, with very on trend beige and tan colours, with loads of layers and all paired with Converse to give that casual, laid-back vibe. The collection also had a 70’s vibe with the oversized sunglasses and tones of every garment, the styling of the hair being big and curled.
Each season KTZ come out with something new, for men they seem to be inspired by different sports. This season they were clearly inspired by baseball and kept that aesthetic throughout the collection with head pieces, bomber jackets and detailing of a baseball on different garments. KTZ kept the traditional colours of black, white and red and also added a beautiful green colour that really stood. The collection also had a hint of military but not as much as some of the other collections this season.
