FASHION CROSSOVER LONDON X LCF MA_19
16th January 2019

This year the ostentatious St George Church, Bloomsbury, was host to the annual London College of Fashion MA Menswear catwalk show. On Monday 7th January, during the London Fashion Week Men’s period, the church transformed into a fashion frenzy with the MA Menswear Class of 2019 debuting their new collections. Accompanied by live opera singer, Phoebe Haines, singing in multiple languages. The prestigious show presented cultural diversity and inclusivity of both the graduate designers and their collections. The message is clear that London remains open, even if the country is going through a hard time deciding on whether to activate Brexit in March or having another referendum.

LONDON FASHION WEEK MEN'S STREETSTYLE
8th January 2018

Celebrating the New Year, the extreme coldness welcomed London Fashion Week Men’s AW 18/19. Even though the London weather was still severe, it wasn’t enough to deter the snazzy crowd who came all the way to attend this prestigious celebration of men’s fashion. That is why our team felt so compelled to see the show as it guaranteed that we were going to see people in unique styles on each street we walked along toward the show venue. And that, we assumed, was just how everyone one else felt, all of them heading to London Fashion Week Men’s.

LONDON FASHION WEEK MEN'S SHOWROOM
8th January 2018

The 11th instalment of men’s fashion week kicked off in the capital on 6th January 2018. With a bitter chill, the Fashion Crossover London crew armed itself with hot coffee, scarves and gloves, and landed at the London Fashion Week venue in 180 Strand safe and sound. Probably it would be a pertinent weather for the fashion people to be puffed up with feathery and fluffy fur coats.

This season, London Fashion Week Men’s chose to keep it as ‘quality over quantity’ this time round. The scale of the designer showroom seemed to have been far reduced than before, whilst the spectrum of brands still being selected cleverly.

In the world of men’s fashion, London has always been deep-rooted in classic tailoring, and I would bet no other cities could excel how London does. Without exception, we were again excited to be mesmerised into the true spirit of British tailoring tweaked with a sense of humour.

BLOOD BROTHER AND MICHIKO KOSHINO AT LFWM 2017
9th January 2017

Expecting nothing short from a label with strong ties to London’s subcultures, the Blood Brother presentation was an animated production of bygone days. Amidst the reverberating soundtrack and the well-trained spotlights, the audience snaked around the concrete platform decked with washed up wares – blackened barrels, rusty chains and caged buoys – an allusion to the River Thames inspiration of the collection. The River Thames, London’s central vein, has drawn in visitors and locals alike. The city’s iconic buildings frame the murky waters and its banks have produced many of London’s historic subcultures, most notably mud larkers and ferry men. It is from these under the radar profiles that Penelope Tucker, designer for Blood Brother, drew inspiration.

BERTHOLD AW17 PRESENTATION LFW MEN'S
8th January 2017

On the walls of Raymond Berthold’s studio are photographs of scratches, scars and stitches embedded deep into the skin, 3D printed prosthetics, curved metal body braces and athletic tape coiled around arms and legs.

The collection explores the rhythm of restriction. Proportions push and pull. Dimensions meet and diverge. Wide, desolate hospital corridors and angular shadows inspire a larger languid silhouette for tunics and winter coats. Thick, rough bandages wrapping heads and masking identities translate into volumes delimited yet energetic. Taut body gloves are worn over wide-leg trousers and sportif jackets have elongated, exaggerated sleeves.
