London Fashion Week Men

London Fashion Week

London fashion week drew to a close yesterday with a whole day devoted exclusively to menswear. A handful of catwalk shows and a couple of presentations showcased a lucky 13 designers in a long-overdue acknowledgment of the city’s huge reservoir of talent in the men’s fashion arena. There were three distinct strands: the showy, the sporty, and the (relatively) classic. They often mingled, as in Tim Soar’s zipper-trimmed bird’s eye suit, or Alister Mackie’s fabulous outerwear for Topman, or Martine Rose’s shirts with their subtle mix of cloth and texture. Calvin Klein‘s Italo Zucchelli, in town on a research trip, was very taken with her, and with Christopher Shannon’s high-functioning combination of nylon and poplin.

And still to come before the catwalks collapse on Feb. 20, Oumlil and Trovata will showcase menswear, which will most likely take on the same somber tones of G-Star, and Diesel who showed earlier this week.
