I seem to be becoming more and more interested in men’s fashion lately so thought I’d bring you a very quick round-up of some of my favourite collections from London Collections: Men AW14. Like I said, these are just “some” of my personal highlights…too much great men's fashion for me to be able to blog about it all. If you haven't seen any of the coverage yet, then get yourself over to the London Collections: Men website to see more. Take a look at some of my choice picks:
Topman Design AW14
|Just in case you weren't aware, Topman Design is Topman's premium collection - it's designed in-house.|
MAN: Alan Taylor AW14
Alan Taylor's collection was based around the work of Henry Matisse, hence the Matisse cut-outs. This collection really caught my eye, I think it's really interesting and I'd really love to see how it's worn off runway. I'm so envious of the guys [and girls too perhaps?] who get to wear this, my head is already filling up with zillions of potential outfit/styling ideas. Ah, to be a boy...I sincerely hope that LFW brings some gems for us gals too.
Gieves & Hawkes AW14
I couldn't do a post on London Collections: Men without featuring Savile Row's finest Gieves & Hawkes, could I now? This is a really amazing collection - luxurious, masculine and very wearable. Very dapper indeed, I like the eyewear too.
Lastly, I have to give mention to Richard Nicoll as this is his first menswear collection - it must be a very exciting time for Team Nicoll indeed. I think it's a superb collection, check it out:
Richard Nicoll AW14
|Another winning collection. A fantastic array of colours and such diverse designs - and yet this is just a snippet of Richard Nicoll's AW14 creations|
So there you have it, here's what our male counterparts will be rocking this Winter. Some very fabulous collections indeed, and yet this has only been a tiny snippet. It truly is a very exciting time for men's fashion at the moment and I'm really excited for all the designers.
So as you can see, the two main trends clearly visible from London Collections: Men AW14 are oversized and colour. I love the wide array of colour palettes that designers have gone for - it's nice to know that there'll be some nice cheery colours to help us embrace the colder months.
Lastly, I'll end on a fun note with this...
The award for most quirky at LC:M AW14 definitely has to go to Bobby Abley... I actually think that Bobby Abley's 'demented Disney' collection is scary, fresh, genius and innovative all at the same time:

I actually almost fell of my chair with laughter at some of the comments on the ASOS Facebook page that were directed at Abley's collection - namely the image above on the left, yes the pink number:
"I don't understand the world anymore"
"Go home Fashion, you're drunk"
"These are men?"
"Looks like something out of zoo lander lol is this a wind up!"
"Oooo dear. What is with his mouth?"
"I guess it's just meant to be fun for the Catwalk. I'm sure the designers don't actually retail pig outfits."
Hilarious isn't it, the Internet doesn't half crack me up sometimes. Just thought I'd share it with you really :)
So I hope you enjoyed this quick look at LC:M AW14. I can't help but wonder what London Fashion Week will bring for us gals now...
