London Collections: Men Spring 2013


For the first time ever London has held its own menswear ‘Fashion Week’ entitled London Collections: Men. The successful weekend focused the fashion industry’s eyes on London, not only appreciating the exciting year they are having (The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics), but also the fantastic new talent that London is producing. It looks like London designers are the new best thing!

Here are my top 5 shows:

London Fashion Week Fall 2012 – Top 5 Shows


As always London’s new talent are ruling the runways!

Simone Rocha impressed many with her reinvention of the ‘Rocha’ look (started by her designer dad John) even though it is her first ever show at London Fashion Week!!! Erdem‘s prim and proper collection had an added edge  this season with his tweed-like leather and lace cut into flower shapes. It is his immense attention to detail that keeps him on the fashion map. Sarah Burton’s military approach for McQ had the audience on the edge of their seats as the models walked through rustling leaves. The atmospheric show will definitely draw the international fashion crowd to London next season. Does Christopher Kane ever get it wrong? His innovative use of fabrics such as leather silk and velvet prove why the designer is at the top of his game. The beaded, chinese like print that ended the show will appear at the top of every fashionista’s shopping list. Mary Katrantzou always finds a new way to do print. Her ever-changing silhouette is what causes peoples excitement for her show. Her interesting, bold colour palette of yellow, red, green and blue reacted perfectly with her coveted prints.
