London Fashion Week Men’s Highlights
London Fashion Week Men’s concluded yesterday on a wet, travel disrupted day in the capital. The Autumn Winter 2017 shows have ushered in a mass of wearable tends from baggy trousers at Craig Green to multicoloured crochets at J.W.Anderson. Here’s our rundown of highlights:
“Titled ‘This is only a start’, Miharayasuhiro’s AW17 show honed in on the idea that there’s a lot more to minimalism than meets the eye. The Barbican Conservatory formed a backdrop of tropical cacti and plants and a Coy pond – a natural and organic environment fitting – playing host to manipulated silhouettes that challenged the conventional pursuit of stripped back design.” HERO
“His collections are a dreamy abstraction of clothing, a place where everyday garments are turned on their heads. His vision is conceptual, but relatable. At the end of the day, he’s one of the most talked-about designers on the Fashion Week circuit because his avant-garde clothing just looks great. He’s probably the next Rei Kawakubo.” – Highsnobiety
“Arguably Britain’s most pioneering and internationally beloved designer. His high-end-meets commercial look is now fixed as the Anderson aesthetic; it is revised each season but is always hinged around the technical, the prints, references and the styling. Piece by piece, his designs are accessible, wearable and beautifully crafted.” The Guardian
“There’s no escaping KTZ’s love of laces at AW17, with the style cropping up in pretty much every look. Whether it’s embellished onto major military style hoodies and jackets or up the seams of trendy trousers and shorts, they certainly tie together the entire collection. The intricacy of each design is a standout, offering up the edgiest of pieces ready for the AW season.” Wonderland
