WHAT TO EXPECT AT THIS SEASON’S LC:M
There’s a lot of fun to be had at London Collections: Men simply by observing the immaculately turned-out buyers, press and bloggers attending the shows. The popularity of LC:M street-style photography is no surprise and there’s always a few trends that emerge from the streets and the front rows as well as from the catwalk. With this in mind, here’s what we expect to spot out-and-about at London Collections: Men SS15.
The last couple years have seen a proliferation of beards amongst LC:M-goers. We’re predicting a U-turn this season, with clean-shaven faces taking centre stage.
For the last few seasons, the trouser style of choice for sartorially-assured gentlemen has been slim and cropped. Although recent shows have stuck to this hemline philosophy, perhaps this season we’re due to see a shift to longer and looser.
People are ditching the brogues and monk-straps for a branded trainer, but still dressing smart nonetheless. Is this the next stage in evolution for smart casual?
At LC:M it’s safe to say that we can always expect a deluge of accessories - tie pins, pocket squares and vintage-style folio cases tend to be common amongst fans of designer menswear. Quite the opposite is the case when it comes to socks, however. Expect to see frequent flashes of ankle
FOOTBALL'S COMING HOME
LC:M has never taken place during a World Cup, so we’re not quite sure if the fashion crowd are going to give a nod to this summer’s football. If they do, expect an onslaught of retro football tees styled with ripped denim and casual tailoring.
Topman Design is an in-house designed premium collection from Topman which is showcased during London Collections: Men, and is the first high street store to hold such a prestigious slot.
LCM COLLECTION IN ASSOCIATION WITH:
MAN is the joint initiative between Topman and non-profit organisation Fashion East. MAN spearheaded London Fashion Week’s menswear schedule in 2005 and proudly champions emerging menswear talent. Designers are selected by a panel of buyers, stylists and journalists. These young designers receive a bursary, catwalk show-production, PR support and expert advice to help them launch their labels.
NEWGEN MEN began in September 2009, building on Topman and Fashion East’s successful MAN shows. This initiative offers professional mentoring and business support which aids in creating key relationships with press and buyers.
"The momentum, kudos and international support that London Collections: Men has gained so rapidly after such a small period of time plays testament to the quality of the British fashion scene and the rising stars it is producing," states Topman Creative Director Gordon Richardson.
