As promised here are some of my images from London Collections: Men. The first show I attended was MAN, a joint initiative between Topman and Fashion East featuring top up-and-coming menswear talent. Astrid Andersen's sportswear pieces with a luxurious twist opened the show. Metallics, florals and velvet updated loose baggy shapes, I particularly liked the addition of gold bottom lips on the models.
Art school graduate Craig Green offered a stark contrast with a simple palette of black and white. Texture was key in the form of distressed fabric, painted stripes and huge wooden headpieces.
My favourite of the three designers shown
had to be
Agi & Sam. True eccentricity ruled in the form of bold prints,
fantastically bright orange brouges and some sweet and slightly sad
looking basset hounds.
