Menswear: London Fashion Week
It is set to be an amazing week of men’s fashion, needlessly neglected and overlooked for years, finally there is a push to put British menswear on the agenda. Starting Jan 6th in London, London Collections: Men, is about to put British menswear back on the map. The line up is impressive, you can view it at London Collections, now.
“The inaugural men’s week was far more successful than any of us anticipated, and we have been overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm for the project from designers, retailers, buyers and the press. LC: M has already contributed to the changing perception of menswear in this country, and our plans for the next week in January, and beyond, will hopefully build on this.” – Dylan Jones, Editor GQ & Chair of the Menswear Committee
I’m very much looking forward to Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane, Meadham Kirchhoff, Topman design… I could go on.
Above, from the June show in London. It will be interesting to see if they can match Topshop in terms of innovation and design content this season, and an overhaul of their website wouldn’t go amiss? We don’t have long to wait, 12.00 Mon 7th…
