London Collections isn’t all about street style, in between the taxi rides and manic schedules there are intimately dispersed runway shows and collections on offer so here are some that caught my eye:
Berthold Collection – LCM16
A study of line and form with wads of layered cotton in cyan, magenta, yellow and black suggest materially and momentum in a digital age. My favourite collection by far 🙂
Baartmans and Siegel Collection – LCM16
London duo Wouter and Amber, were both 2010 graduates of the London College of Fashion. Baartmans and Siegel has grown into a premium label focusing on wearable luxury.
Beams Plus & Mr Porter Collection – LCM16
Mr Porter launched in 2011 and has established itself as the global retail destination for men’s style, combining unparalleled product offering from the world’s best designers.
KTZ Collection – LCM16
Conceived in 2003, KTZ is a contemporary London-based fashion label under the creative direction of Marjan Pejoski who brought a real urban edge to the collection and the show.
Lou Dalton x River Island Fashion Film – LCM16
The Lou Dalton x River Island Design Forum Fashion Film ‘Bones of a flightless bird’ creates a strong sense of nostalgia and belonging, with no apparent line between the city and country.
London Collections Men 2016
A whirlwind few days, LCM has left me physically and emotionally drained and yet I would not have changed it for the world. Getting some of my shots published in Fucking Young magazine was a personal highlight but meeting up with some old friends and overindulging on alcohol will never go out of fashion.
Diego Barrueco, Joey London, Gallucks, Infashionity and everyone else (you know who you are!) who made this weekend so memorable – I salute you!
