Like previous seasons, the Royal College of Art graduate Lou Dalton once again was bestowed with the honour to open the three-day-long British menswear revelry London Collections: Men.
Inspired from the practical dresses worn by raw young farm hands, the designer presented a series of pragmatic clothes punched with a fresh and contemporary twist. Her line featured brown corduroy Jackets and trousers as well as distressed, bleached denims in blue and pink colours, mimicking the worn-out effect of field workers’ clothes.
The designer also showcased a set of cord cap and a beanie, designed in partnership with milliner label Bernstock Spiers (owned by Paul Bernstock and Thelma Speirs), and some oversized cashmere coats and Fair Isle knits.
British knitwear specialist John Smedley offered an array of modern sophisticated garments for the Fall/Winter 2014 season. Titled as The Journey, the knitted collection was inspired from the archived John Smedley family photo albums. 
Influenced by the images of the family’s Tyrol skiing trips and New York and Amsterdam city tours in the 1930s, the line was replete with intarsia knitting machine woven geometric patterns of buildings and shadows on chunky Egyptian blue and Italian plum hued pieces,. 
Stand-alone fashion business Topman’s in-house designed premium line Topman Design featured a collection of must-have wintery items for men. Inspired from Wild West, the range included a re-worked version of wardrobe staples. 
Designed under the guidance of Gordon Richardson, the catwalk collection included Duffle jackets decorated with funky raw edges, leather collars and insets as well as the on-trend wet-look. The range also featured the winter season classics like luxe oversized coats, gigantic knitwear and hip-snug trousers made from boiled wool.
