With catwalks empty, famous faces papped and countless iPhone show snaps now circulating the Internet, London Collections: Men draws to a close for another season. We take a look back at some of our favorite collections from the 60 menswear designers who presented for Fall/Winter 2013-14 – next stop: Milan!
Christopher Shannon: Towering piles of hoarder’s clothes inspired Shannon’s ‘Obsessive, Compulsive, Re-order’ collection. Fabric clashes abounded in jumbled textures of leather, nylon, denim and knit, with highlights taking the form of playful Spongebob face detail and a mix of male and female models on the runway.
Richard Nicoll: The designer’s second ever menswear collection appealed with an understated futuristic cool, mixing “industrial, classical essentials inspired by Brutalist architecture.” Sci-fi-esque metallic pieces were complemented by soft knits and streetwear beanies.
Craig Green: Presenting at the MAN show, recent Central Saint Martins graduate Craig Green’s surreal driftwood ‘plank hats’ were a much-discussed feature of LCM, as rebellious-looking models wore paneled tunic tops and cuffed trousers, dipped in black paint.
Katie Eary: Horror lover Katie Eary sent an impeccably well-dressed breed of vampire down the catwalk, complete with fangs, shades and slicked-back hair. Hyper saturated pink florals and quirky blue lobster prints were inspired by “the food of the rich” in the eighteenth century.
