Hey guys! How are you doing?
Today we are talking about the London Fashion Week Mens that happened recently. First of all, where was my invitation? Just kidding. To be serious, I am very glad that LFWM is growing year to year. This was the events 5th anniversary and finally, they started calling it LFWM. Before it was London Collections or something like that. Now a lot of designers showcased their collections but I’m only covering Oliver Spencer, Vivienne Westwood, and Kent and Curwen. If you want to see more, go and check out the LFWM website.
Now I am not a big fan of suiting I have to be honest, but this collection was so enjoyable. Oliver Spencer is known to have classic pieces that will always be relevant and this show was no different. Blazers, tailored shorts, stripes, and checks, YES! The best pieces are the peachy trousers and jacket. Check out the collection here.
After her return to showcase in London, the queen of punk is killing it to me every season. In terms of colour, a lot of whites and blues, which is ok since this was the SS18 collection. The setting, a playground, the music, two guys playing the piano and the guitar. The clothes were essential Vivienne with a message -Buy less, choose well, make it last. She is an important pioneer of sustainability and environmental issues and always makes a statement with her shows. Great work! – watch the show here
Kent & Curwen
I think Kent & Curwen is getting better and better every year since David Beckham joined as a creative lead in 2015. Also, recent news say that a new flagship will open at Covent Garden this fall. This brand is a brand that has strong British Heritage, classic styling, and a great quality, but let’s talk about the show. The English rose had appeared on several pieces, I assume to highlight the brand’s roots and heritage. The collection overall was fun and I think the designs were aimed at the younger customer base as well. My favourite pieces are the sweater with the stripes, and the red jacket with the English rose. Check out the collection here.
That’s it for today. What do you think about the collections?
Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday,
The Fashion Eclectic.
