An array of menswear designs for the next Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 season has been recently showcased at the just wrapped up edition of British men-focused style extravaganza 'London Collections: Men'.
The 1970’s Scottish pop band Bay City Rollers played as source of inspiration for the Arcadia Group-owned men’s fashion brand Topman’s in-house premium label Topman Design. Created under the guidance of the brand’s creative helm Gordon Richardson, the collection included several glam-rock and psychedelic motifs inspired clothing, thigh-hugging jeans, oversized coats and tartan pieces.
The New York-based leatherwear specialist Coach presented its first male fashion catwalk at the London event. Drawing inspiration from its leathery heritage, the collection included an array of shearling coats in varying volumes, collegiate jackets, camouflage designs, sweaters and narrow jeans, all designed by the label’s British-born executive creative director Stuart Vevers.
London’s Central St Martins’ grad Christopher Shannon took inspiration from the works of photographer Nigel Shafran and plastic bags from convenience stores for his new creations. The featured pieces were shell-suits, cinched waist puffer jackets, button-down shirts with colourful Velcro patches, skinny tracksuits and sweaters.
Agi Mdumulla and Sam Cotton, the designers behind the English label Agi and Sam, were inspired from the vibrant colours of Lego bricks. The collection included an array of colour blocked and printed turtlenecks, coats, loose trousers and long sleeve shirts.
The British luxury fashion house Burberry Prorsum’s chief creative director and CEO Christopher Bailey gave a classic Bohemian twist to his fresh menswear designs. The range featured sequined and paisley print shirts, shearling coats, tasselled scarves, tailored trenches and fringed ponchos in shades of ivy green, taupe, purple, yellow and navy. (PB)
