Topman’s X London Fashion Week Men’s: How We’re Supporting Young Designers

London Fashion Week Men’s is the biggest date in the menswear calendar, more so than any other fashion week in the world and even bigger than Supreme releasing their umpteenth luxury branded hoodie/sneaker/boy scout penknife. It’s a chance for some of the most well-known and iconic names in the industry to showcase their genius in the environment it was meant to be shown – but that’s not what we’re interested in.

The most exciting part of LFWM is the up-and-coming designers; the untapped talent we get to see before they’re global superstars. From JW Anderson, to Agi & Sam, to Astrid Andersen, Topman has supported a wealth of young aspiring menswear designers along with the British Fashion Council and Fashion East through initiatives such as MAN and NEWGEN MEN, and 2018 is no different. This year we’ll be hosting Art School, Rottingdean Bazaar and Stefan Cooke’s MAN shows in our very own showspace in the heart of London. Here’s what you can expect from each of the designers…

MAN SHOW KICKS OFF SUNDAY 7TH JANUARY, 12PM

ART SCHOOL

Art School is the combine efforts of Eden Loweth and Tom Barrattwho focus on producing top quality non-binary product for a generation that’s questioning the traditional values of gender. They’re a celebration of everything queer, so expect their collection to be loud, proud, and most importantly, unisex.

ROTTINGDEAN BAZAAR

Originally starting off as a badge project called Badge Taste, now a major brand that’s worked with Ashish and Christopher Shannon. Rottingdean Bazaar consists of James Theseus Buck and Luke Brooks, both of which graduated from illustrious college Central Saint Martins, and who have now translated their unique badging work onto soft cotton jersey.

STEFAN COOKE

After assisting Craig Green and interning for John Galliano, Stefan Cooke found himself exploring sensory subversion, taking pretty average clothing like cricket vests and trench coats from charity shops, which he then photographed, digitally manipulated and transposed onto synthetic materials such as elastic and polyester. Unsurprisingly, this unusual technique has won him a L’Oreal Professional Creative Award, and has made him a definite one-to-watch this London Fashion Week Men’s.
