B&T on London Collections: MEN

Now in its fifth season for spring/summer 2015, London Collections: MEN has become THE hub for mens fashion, from the catwalk to the front row with Burberry Prorsum, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, DKNY & Topman all showcasing their Spring/Summer 2015 collections (plus supermodel David Gandy supporting from the front row.)

From neon tailoring to pinstripes and mod-styling sportswear – the future for menswear catwalks is bright and exciting and of course, only in London.

Burberry Prorsum: Christopher Bailey delivered a cool collection of layered overcoats, tied trenches, denim jackets and velvet tailoring; the neon trainers say that street style is here to stay.
Alexander McQueen: Prince of Wales check, strong Matisse-esque cut-outs and PVC panels make this a collection where British heritage meets bondage; classic McQueen.
Casely-Hayford: The second catwalk from Brit father and son duo – the neutral collection featured oversized outerwear, cool pinstripes and pieces that were a hybrid of tailoring and tracksuits.
Christopher Kane: Like with his womenswear, Kane experiments with prints and brilliantly bright colours; we loved the neon outerwear and abstract eighties prints.
Richard Nicoll: Bright sunny patterns and print blocking, layered with baseball jackets and two-toned outerwear; these are clothes the boys will wear and the girls will steal.
Jonathan Saunders: Saunders showed sunshine tones with colours amping up from pale to bright alongside Jackson Pollock-esque painterly flecks and smooth metallic satins. Note: sportswear styling is here to stay for spring summer 2015!
DKNY: Classic DKNY with clean lines and uptown-meets-downtown styling; we love a man in layered tailoring and navy on white is timeless.

Topman Design: Who would have predicted that nineties Brit pop and Woodstock styling would be a Topman trend for S/S 2015? Will the boys really be wearing flares?
E Tautz: Both skinny and wide  stripes from Patrick Grant prove pinstripes are a key trend for S/S ’15; we adore the mix of sharp tailoring with mod styling and sportswear.
YMC: With pastel pink suiting, light tweeds and sporty outerwear, this is one of our favourites for effortlessly cool apparel.
