Being in the Menswear industry as a shirt designer, business owner and now menswear blogger *extraordinaire; it has become a complete must to attend the ever growing in popularity London Collections: Men events. Running officially from 9th - 12th Jan this event was showcasing AW15 collections.
*Self proclaimed, no evidence to support this!
In previous years, I have been a little laid-back in my approach to these events - half expecting the postman to be working overtime to deliver all of my invitations. But now after a couple of seasons standing in queues to these major menswear catwalks and presentations - taking photos of those going in, I decided to plead, beg, bombard, prey to brands, event organisers and PR companies for tickets. Did it work? Hell yeah, for the first time I had more invites than I knew what to do with and here are my top London Collections: Men AW15 looks.
These two incredible tailored looks by the bespoke Joshua Kane. I love the subtle boldness off both looks.
Classic tailoring from Hackett, smart yet never overcrowded with too many accessories and all very wearable. The Tab Collar not only was prominent in the Hackett AW15 collection but set a theme throughout the event.
If I was to pick a collection that inspired me it would be this. Hardy Amies layered all my favourite autumn tones, using earthy colours, touches of yellow and a mixture of blues. The diversity of the collection was incredible with knitwear, double breasted blazers, fur-lined parka-esq jackets and just to finish us off they even showcased a dinner evening range. The complete collection.
For classic outerwear, the Aquascutum collection stood out - it was just effortless.
